BOOK OF THE WEEK: Little Woodford by Catherine Jones
The choice by the team at Bookmark in Spalding this week:
A new village drama full of life, love... and secrets. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell and Emma Burstall.
Little Woodford has a sleepy high street, a weekly market, a weathered old stone Church and lovingly tended allotments. A peaceful, unexciting place, the very heart of middle England.
In Little Woodford no one has fingers in more pies than Olivia Laithwaite, parish councillor, chair of the local WI, wife, mother and all round queen bee. So of course it’s Olivia who is first to spot that The Beeches has been sold at last. Soon rumours begin to swirl around the young widow who has bought this lovely house.
Why exactly did she leave London with her beautiful stepdaughter and young sons? Are they running from someone? Hiding something? Though if they are, they won’t be the only ones. Sometimes the arrival of newcomers in a community is all it takes to light a fuse...
Little Woodford by Catherine Jones (RRP £7.99) is available from Bookmark in The Crescent at £5.99. There's an extra 20% off with the voucher in this week's Spalding Guardian (on sale April 4-10).
