"A quiet life in the country may not be as simple and enjoyable as first thought."

Fresh Fiction Review

Farm Fatale
Wendy Holden

Reviewed by Kay Quintin

Contemporary Chick Lit

Rosie, a freelance London illustrator, finally convinces her boyfriend Mark that they need the peace and quiet of the country in order for them both to do their best work. Mark finally receives his own column writing witty articles about life in the country.

Rosie's new writing project is coming along nicely as she meets the quirky residents on Cinder Lane and Eight Mile Bottom. Mark, however, is rejecting all of Rosie's amusing story suggestions as seen through the colorful residents of the area. Now Mark is irritable and falling apart, as well as hating the country. Things don't happen quite the way Rosie has planned upon their move, and the "country" actually brings the unexpected. The simple life Rosie desires isn't so simple.

The writing is quite witty and clever, but, I found it to be sometimes a little hard to follow with all the English slang that I'm not familiar with. There did not appear to be a lot to the storyline itself, but it's still somewhat humorous and catchy enough to give a few chuckles along the way.
