Review of Kitty's Countryside Dream by Christie Barlow - Four *


When Kitty inherits Bluebell Lodge from her grandmother, a farm in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, it’s time for fresh air and a fresh start. Up to her elbows in chickens and ponies, Kitty soon realises there’s an awful lot to learn about farming. Still, at least the locals seem friendly, not least her handsome neighbour Tom… 

But just as Kitty is beginning to find her feet, and the possibility of love, the discovery of a long-hidden diary, by a mysterious character called Violet changes everything. Who is Violet and what is her message for Kitty? As Kitty fills in the lost pieces of her family jigsaw and discovers some shocking revelations, will her countryside dream and blossoming relationship fall to pieces? When it comes to life in the country, nothing is ever quite as it seems …


This is a very funny book - with a lot of twists in the tale! Kitty inherits two properties from a grandmother she didn't even know existed!

The descriptions of getting to grips with the farm and its inhabitants had me laughing out loud! And the auction was wonderful - I'd have done exactly the same!

The romance thread through the book is very cleverly done. It is a salutary tale of establishing facts before leaping to the wrong conclusions - several times!

Thoroughly enjoyed it - thank you for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.
