Country Persuits – Jo Carnegie

9 May

Synopsis – The gorgeous women of Churchminster know exactly what they want – a constant flow of champagne (on tap at the local pub) and the love of a good man. But faced with the likes of braying, beer-guzzling farmer Angus, foul-tempered Lord Fraser and suave banker Sebastian (devoted only to himself), their attentions are increasingly drawn to more attractive possibilities . . . Meanwhile, when a part of their beloved village comes under threat from a villainous property developer and his bulldozer, the community is united by a different kind of passion. Can they raise enough money to save Churchminster? Will Mick Jagger turn up to the charity ball? And can a person actually die from too much extra-marital sex?

My thoughts – I enjoyed reading this book quite alot, however to start with i almost put it down. There is an awful lot of characters introduced early on in this book and i just cant get into books that do that. I carried on reading and got sucked in! the story centres on a villiage called Churchminster, a villiage in England, quite posh really and the people that live there. I also thought that it was going to just be chick lit, but it had elemenents of ghosts, romance, celebrity, missing people and murder. This would not be a book that i would lend to my nan however, as it is quite racy in parts and if your not expecting it, it could be quite a shock!
all in all a very enjoyable read, and i would recommend it!
