Blog Tour – The Country Set by Fiona Walker

Today it’s my turn to be on the blog  tour for The Country Set by Fiona Walker. If you are Jilly Cooper fans you will enjoy this one for sure!

Before you can read my review, here is a little about The Country Set. Plus at the end of this post you have the chance to win a copy for yourself.

Fiona Walker's The Country Set

Book Description

Love affairs, village rivalries, horses, jealousy and secrets – fans of Fiona Walker’s bestselling Hugo and Tash novels will relish this return to her classic territory with a whole new cast of Cotswold village characters.

Compton Magna and Nether Bagot sit high on the Fosse Hills to either side of the Gloucestershire/Warwickshire border, just half a mile apart. They form the backdrop to this rich story of old secrets and new rivalries, as glamorous Ronnie Ledwell returns to take up the reins of her father’s horse breeding stud farm, years after she scandalised family and friends by eloping with her lover, abandoning both husband and children. News of her return will well and truly set the cat among the pigeons.

My Review

The Country Set is a really long book, 870 pages in fact. But it’s perfect for a cosy night in. There are lots of characters to get your head around, but after a few chapters in I got the hang of it. There are heroes and heroines, horses, secrets, love and much more.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it does take some persevering at the beginning. Please do stick with it as it’s very rewarding.

Fiona Walker is a great writer with imagination. If you love the country scene this is for you.

    My favourite book that I have read more times than any other is The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy by the late great and sadly missed Douglas Adams. It is guaranteed to make me laugh every time
