A Rural AffairA Rural Affair by Catherine Alliott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
jaffa's rating 4 paws

Poppy Shilling often fantasised about her controlling husband's death, so when a freak accident actually caused her husband's demise, she finds the prospect of life without him quite daunting. The marriage wasn't particularly happy, but when Poppy discovers that her husband had been keeping some secrets from her , she is galvanised into action.

I thought the book was great fun, it's best read quickly, as the story bounds along at a cracking pace. The dialogue is witty, and even though the heroine is far from perfect, she manages to convey warmth of character, and a simple belief in the world around her.There is an abundance of quirky characters that  flit into and out of Poppy's life,and there are some truly funny moments that had me laughing out loud.

This is a great beach read, and highly recommended if you need something to keep you amused on a long journey.
