Publisher's Write-Up

You know how it is? Just when you think that you're sorted, something happens to hurl your best laid plans into disarray.

As she has very personal reasons for disliking everything to do with racing, leaving Oxford to open a bookshop in a village where people live and breathe horses probably isn't the brightest decision Jemima Carlisle has ever made.

Finding the countryside anything but tranquil, Jemima has scarcely stocked up her shelves before she's embroiled in sharing secrets, supermodel shenanigans and stable skulduggery. Her shop becomes the focus of the village hit squad, her landlady is into money-laundering, and while everyone else is involved in blockbusting steamy relationships, Jemima's lovelife is a closed book.

But this is Milton St John where things are never quite what they seem to be, and Jemima quickly learns that jumping to conclusions is bound to end in disaster...

A Christine Jones novel is always a total pleasure and those who read Going the Distance will enjoy meeting some of the characters again.

A girly type book for me this time - I do like my thrillers but sometimes I just want something a bit more fluffy.

Enter this young lady who, surprise, surprise, dreams of opening her very own bookshop. Including full cast of vicious old ladies and drop dead gorgeous jockeys.

I did like this, it was easy to read, with a nice person at the centre of the story, (lots of sympathy for her, I would like nothing more than to have my own bookshop, but I probably would not like to let any of them go... :)
