Summary

When Lucy Fellowes is offered a dream house in the country she leaps at it. It's hard enough living in London on an uncertain income, but when you're widowed with two small boys it's even harder.

And anyway, a rural retreat will bring her closer to Charlie, the only man in four years to make her heart beat faster. Perfect. Or it would be. If only he didn't belong to someone else...

Laugh out loud funny.

This book made me laugh, yet it had a serious back bone. I'm choosing another book by Catherine Alliott right now.

Such a lovely book!

I loved every minute of this book and couldn’t stop listening to it! I was actually sad when it ended as I wanted to know what happened next! It’s about the 5th Catherine Alliott book I’ve listened to and probably my favourite! The narrator couldn’t have been better.

British equivalent to A Ronconi/M Harper ...

Few books make me LOL. This one did, plus smiles and snorts
.
Besides being funny it also has substance, it is definitely more than the usual chick lit

Do not expect a literary novel, but something more than just fun silliness.

Most of all i think the perfect combination of author and reader does the trick.

Certainly reminded me of A Ronconi and M Harper books.

I strongly recommend it!

not her best

What did you like best about A Married Man? What did you like least?

I have read or listened to almost all of alliott novels, and whilst they are always good fun and entertaining, this is most certainly not alliotts best.
The characters are as always flawed and find themselves in mildly humour situations, but this particular audiobook there is too much drama going on, too much death, so that the humour seems out of place or perhaps it is vice versa.
Stick to her books like a rural affair (the best in my opionion) or even a crowded marriage.

What does Suzy Aitchison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

However, all story aspects set aside, suzy aitchison the narrator is as always, fantastic.
Have yet to hear anyone who is as good as her.
