Product Description

'Warm and witty - Julie's got it in spades' Tracy Bloom.

Cassie Beresford has recently landed her dream job as deputy head at her local, idyllic village primary school, Little Acorns. So, the last thing she needs is her husband of twenty years being 'outed' at a village charity auction - he has been having an affair with one of her closest friends.

As if that weren't enough to cope with, Cassie suddenly finds herself catapulted into the head teacher position, and at the forefront of a fight to ward off developers determined to concrete over the beautiful landscape.

But through it all, the irresistible joy of her pupils, the reality of keeping her teenage children on the straight and narrow, her irrepressible family and friends, and the possibility of new love, mean what could have been the worst year ever, actually might be the best yet...

Julie Houston's novels are funny, wonderfully warm and completely addictive. Perfect for all fans of Gervaise Phinn, Katie Fforde and Jill Mansell.

Praise for Julie Houston:

'A Village Affair is a totally absorbing read that's beautifully written, full of warmth, charm, humour, a compelling and heart-warming plot that I didn't want to put down' NetGalley Reviewer.

'This is a story about family, friendship, and realising your own worth and not being afraid of taking a chance, and I devoured this book in a couple of hours because I just didn't want to put it down' NetGalley Reviewer.

'An enthralling novel, hard to put down' NetGalley Reviewer.

'It is a must read, heart-warming story - no hesitation in giving this one 5 stars!!' NetGalley Reviewer.

'What a brilliant story this turned out to be so full of surprises and shocking revelations from the start to the end' NetGalley Reviewer.

'Lovely and entertaining, with wonderful set of lovable characters will have you rooting for Cassie' NetGalley Reviewer.
