Description

"Wickedly funny.”
Kirkus

A witty, beloved novel of heart and heartland, Farm Fatale skewers the culture clash of city vs. country in the snappy, observant style that made Wendy Holden famous.

Cash-strapped Rosie and her boyfriend Mark are city folk longing for a country cottage. Rampant nouveaux riches Samantha and Guy are also searching for rustic bliss—in the biggest mansion money can buy. The village of Eight Mile Bottom seems quiet enough, despite a nosy postman, a reclusive rock star, a glamorous Bond Girl, and a ghost with a knife in its back. But there are unexpected thrills in the hills, and Rosie is rapidly discovering that country life isn’t so simple after all.

"This lighthearted romp, surprisingly unpredictable, smart, and fun, is refreshing fare readers can turn to.”
—Publishers Weekly
"Every character here is deliciously ridiculous, and every rustic detail a grand satirical opportunity.”
—Baltimore Sun
"Wendy Holden writes with delicious verve and energy.”
—Mail on Sunday
