Synopsis

Another warm, wise and witty offering from Sunday Times bestseller Trisha Ashley. James is everything Tish has ever wanted in a husband – she’s married a man who even her mother approves of. He’s handsome, dependable, and will make an excellent father – unlike Tish’s first love, the disreputable Fergal. Her teenage sweetheart abandoned her for a music career and now lives a typical celebrity lifestyle. Fergal broke her heart – James helped mend it. Now, they’ve bought a cottage in the country. The next step – kids and a lifetime of domestic bliss. Well, that’s the plan. And even if James has a slight tendency to view the village pub as a second home, their relationship is still in pretty good shape after seven years of marriage. So why is marriage to Mr Right making her long for Mr Wrong?

Brilliant as usual

As usual a book that was impossible to put down. A few twists and turns in the story plus the usual humour that we expect from Trisha.

I enjoyed his book. The characters were believable if a little larger than life. I will look out for more books by this author.

If you like Jilly Cooper and Sophie Kinsella, I highly recommend Trisha Ashley. I tore through this book in 4 days, despite having a full time job and two children. I absolutely loved it. Romance, a bit of a mystery and two lovers, separated by time and circumstance, who are reunited in the seemingly quiet English countryside, make for a delightful read. Put on your pot of tea, grab some chocolate biscuits and be prepared to ignore the phone, the doorbell and just about everything and everyone else!

Good read

I really like Trisha Ashley books, but I found this one different from previous reads. I did enjoy reading it, but I do find it annoying that so many author's paint the heroine's mother to be uncaring, selfish and self absorbed, and this gets a little tiresome as it would be nice to meet a normal loving mother. I also didn't take to Tish wholeheartedly, as I found her too airy fairy, and an instant dislike to her husband, especially as I have known someone exactly like James. Fergal was OK, nothing more to him. But that said I did enjoy the book and the trials and tribulations to Tish's life and her acceptance of who her husband actually is, and that she can actually cope without him. It didn't have the same romance factor as her previous books, but this still reads well and I would still recommend people read it.
