Favorite Quotes:

 

 A Village Romance

 

That bleeding dog is better groomed than I am… She feeds it caviar. I bloody ask you. It nearly bit my whatsit off once. All I was trying to do was get into my own bed. It was my bed of course. Comes to something when the only threesome you have with your tart is with her bloody poodle.

 

Try and keep the noise down if you would. We’re having a funeral and the Sex Pistols weren’t quite what we’d planned as our accompaniment to carry in the hearse…

 

He felt the earth hit his backside and cursed.   The rotavator was off, like a Dr. Who monster, spitting out vegetation in its wake… ‘I’m just doing a bit of gardening,’ he said innocently.

 

A Summer Romance

 

 I hope you mean pheasant, Billy? We’d be a bit worried if you were killing the peasants.

 

My Review:

 

I adored both of these amusing and well-written novellas about a tiny British village “in the country” with its special blend of residents and recent new arrivals.   I was soon fascinated by each and every character as they proved to be a varied bunch, each with their own secrets and inner musings. A Village Romance was a quick and enticing read that had my attention from the start and kept me engaged throughout. The writing was humorous yet insightful and captivating in the midst of the fun. I love learning new words and phrases and being on the other side of 2 oceans from my Brit friends, I was on the back foot with several of the cultural references, slang, and maxims, as they were completely unknown to me -but it was fun looking them up and asking my Brit friends for help, and have since added them to my mental file of Brit vernacular.

A Summer Romance concluded The Little Perran Romance Series with a few exciting and intriguing twists to this adorable and amusing series. Several sweet and tender budding romances sprang forth and the writing took a more sensual turn from the previous installment. The village was abuzz in preparation for their annual fete with the newcomer celebs helping them kick it up several notches from their previous events. Toss in a jealous scorned woman who was also a vindictive gossip, then add in an unstable and violent man intent on tracking down his ex, and the story becomes even more compelling. And my favorite old rocker turned country gent, Billy Baxter, can always be counted on to provide comic relief. I feel like I hit the mother lode in stumbling into this series with excellent writing, an amusing and entertaining storyline, endearing characters, steamy sensuality, sweet romances, jealousy, competition, intrigue and adventure – this old cougar found Nirvana! I would love to read books like this every day.
