Today I’m delighted to share detail of another of my online My Weekly reviews, this time of Country Secrets by Fiona Walker.
Published by Head of Zeus on 13th August 2023, Country Secrets is available for purchase here.
Can you ever have a second chance at first love?
When Ronnie Percy’s gorgeous on-off lover Blair is forced to deep-freeze their affair for the sake of his sick wife, she’s delighted to be distracted by charismatic neighbour, Kit Donne, and – more surprisingly – finds herself drawn into a fight for the future of the village. But then the return of someone from her distant past threatens to expose long-buried secrets.
Meanwhile daughter Pax – already besieged by her controlling estranged husband – has started to suspect that new beau ‘the horsemaker’ Luca still loves somebody else. The last shoulder on earth she should cry on is Bay Austen’s, but his marriage is crumbling and he’s lost none of his dangerous charm. Moreover, Bay knows the way to her heart is through her horses…
Old friendships, new loves, jealousies, gossip and beautiful horses – these are the classic ingredients for Fiona Walker’s latest gripping, sexy novel, set in the Cotswold village of Compton Magna and laced with her trademark humour.
My Review of Country Secrets
My full review of Country Secrets can be found on the My Weekly website here.
However, here I can say that Country Secrets is a real canter of a novel that holds intrigue, secrets and more than a touch of naughtiness that I thoroughly enjoyed.
About Fiona Walker
Fiona Walker is the best-selling author of eighteen novels. Plucked out of the slush pile at twenty-three with her first novel, French Relations, Fiona’s unique brand of sharp-eyed romantic comedy and never-want-to-leave setting was an immediate hit, and her books have gone on to sell millions of copies worldwide. The sassy big sister of chick lit, dubbed ‘the Jilly Cooper of the Cosmo generation’, she’s grown up alongside her readers from nineties London party-animal to dog-walking country mum, and her knack for story-telling remains as compelling as ever.
Fiona lives in Shakespeare Country with her partner Sam, a dressage coach, their two daughters and a menagerie of horses, dogs and other animals.
