A Country Escape
Fran has always wanted to be a farmer – and now it looks as if her childhood dream is about to come true. She’s just moved onto a beautiful but very run-down farm in the Cotswolds, currently owned by an old aunt who’s told Fran that if she manages to turn the place around in a year, the farm will be hers. But Fran knows nothing about farming. She might even be afraid of cows. She’s going to need a lot of help from her best friend, Issi, and also from her wealthy and very eligible neighbour – who might just have his own reasons for being so supportive. Is it the farm he’s interested in? Or Fran herself? Warm, funny and wonderfully romantic,
A Country Escape is Katie Fforde at her very best.
Looking for more of an adrenalin read? We’re huge Lisa Gardner fans, and were thrilled when we got her latest hot-off-the-press, Look For Me. It opens with a family home that’s become a crime scene. Five people are involved … four of them have been brutally murdered, the fifth is a 16-year-old girl who’s missing. It’s up to Detective DD Warren and survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane to find out if the young girl was lucky enough to escape the killer … or if there’s something more sinister involved! Trying to make sense of the clues left behind, they have to work out if she’s a victim or a suspect. A Country Escape and Look For Me (Random House) are both Get It Book Club choices. What does that mean? Well, you can buy them at your local bookstore for R290 each, or join our club and pay only R232 each. Silly not to, really.
