A Country Escape Read Online Free - Fran has always wanted to be a farmer. And now it looks as if her childhood dream is about to come true. She has just moved in to a beautiful but very run-down farm in the Cotswolds, currently owned by an old aunt who has told Fran that if she manages to turn the place around in a year, the farm will be hers. But Fran knows nothing about farming. She might even be afraid of cows.
She's going to need a lot of help from her best friend Issi, and also from her wealthy and very eligible neighbour - who might just have his own reasons for being so supportive. Is it the farm he is interested in? Or Fran herself?
Warm, funny and wonderfully romantic, this is Katie Forde at her very best.

I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this book. I especially enjoyed it as I live in Bristol not far from the Cotswolds where this book is set. Indeed one of my grandfather's sisters married a farmer and made butter and cream in her Cotswold dairy. It was a fine read for a cold winter...

Este ha sido uno de mis libros favoritos de Fforde. Realmente interesante todo el tema de la granja y el queso. Me ha encantado como ha hilado esas historias con el romance de la novela. <3
