A Rural Affair by Catherine Alliott

I’m glad I rediscovered this author. I liked Poppy’s friends in the village, including snide, chain-smoking Peggy with her secrets, and Jennie and her out-of-control husband. Books by Catherine Alliott. I find her characters very likeable and quirky and the humour she uses always works. Mar 19, Julie Loth rated it it was amazing. She writes with her favorite pen in note books, either in the garden or on a sofa. Apr 21, Emmy rated it really liked it Shelves: From breaking news to debate and conversation, we bring you the news as it happens.

This book kept me entertained to the end. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. Poppy meets with Phil’s solicitor to straighten out the will and finds herself somewhat drawn to the disorganized but attractive Sam Hetherington. A disappointing read from an author who can usually be relied on for a rollicking funny story with good insights. Her British whit and charm is so evident in her writing. Poppy occupies herself looking after her two children, hanging out with her friends and trying to catherihe money for a winter coat from her allowance Phil spends all his spare time on his racing bike – until he’s killed by a piece of “blue ice” which falls from the undercarriage of a descending aircraft.

It’s funny in places and has the potential to be entertaining but it just starts to drag on and on with nothing much happening. It’s called blue ice for a specific reason. Poppy moves forward with a few missteps but keeps plugging along.

My kind of book. Funny from start to finish. Very enjoyable read, like Jilly Cooper with less sex and Joanna Trollope with more laughs.

So and Poppy’s life. Oct 13, Margaret rated it really liked it Shelves: There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Does she really have the courage to risk her heart again?

Loved his eccentricity and the easy allitt she has with him. She is one of my favourite chick lit writers. The characters are believable, although some are similar to ones in her other books.

I read this several years ago, in paperback, but it’s still enjoyable the 2nd time around. Poppy is a young wife and mother who has settled into a lacklustre marriage to Phil, a man she doesn’t really like but who fits the bill as a family provider, although a tight-fisted oneand a less-than-doting father. Poppy has been kept under her late husband’s thumb and now, is learning to stand up for herself and become her own person.


Review “Alliott does a great job of keeping readers on their toes and giving us a not-so-traditional love story.

Entirely predictable ending but it doesn’t really matter, put your feet up after a hard day with this book in one hand and a glass of wine within reach of the other, and you’re sorted. Share on LinkedIn linkedin. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more by Cathherine.

When a woman comes to her door after the funeral, Poppy learns that her marriage was an even bigger sham than she thought and spirals downward. It isn’t going to win any awards, but there are parts that caused me to pause and do some thinking. It will be interesting to see how it compares.

All in all, a wonderful read for touching sentiment, super laughs and rurral characters — great escapism for a chilly autumnal day.
