A Rural Affair by Catherine Alliott

ruralThis was a nice cozy book, funny, but a little too long. In a British village Poppy, mother to two, finds herself suddenly widowed and it’s…a bit of a relief. Her husband was a total ass. It’s actually a bit awkward to try to pretend to be bereaved because she’s really not. But then out come the secrets-Phil had been having an affair and his hussy mistress wants part of the estate. This brings up all sorts of conflicting emotions, hijinx, and so on. I found it extremely maddening that the mistress’s lawsuit seemed to be a genuine threat. I mean, really?  I felt like Poppy needed better representation.  The hunt scene (horses) is totally fascinating. Like I said, good, but just a bit too long.
