9780316855730: The Farmer Wants a Wife

Flora Parker is sassy and stylish with a mouth as big as Wembley Stadium and a tendency to act before she thinks, which is how she ends up getting drunk and on the front of a newspaper in her Wonderbra and not much else. Filled with self-loathing she retreats to her aunt's house in the country to look for a little meaning in her life. Instead she finds an overbearing uncle, a farm on the brink of bankruptcy, a child who won't come out of the airing cupboard and a precocious 10-year-old who lists all Flo's faults. As if she didn't already know them. But, being Flo, instead of running away she itches to put it all right...especially when the farmer next door announces an intriguing bet: he will give his farm and glorious farmhouse to whichever of his handsome nephews finds a wife by Michaelmas. So Flo takes up matchmaking full-time, ignoring the fact that it might be she who is the object of their affections. Meanwhile she finds she's falling in love herself...with a way of life that is muddy, smelly and under threat. But is she prepared to put her head on the altar to keep it?

About the Author:

Maeve Haran is the highly successful author of HAVING IT ALL. A former journalist and producer, she is now a full time writer. She lives with her husband and their three children.

Review:

'The author plants herself firmly in the romantic comedy genre, attacks it with gusto and a refreshing lack of self-consciousness' - Elizabeth Buchan, SUNDAY TIMES 'This irresistible romp bursts with good humour' - GOOD HOUSEKEEPING A good summer read, this one isn't all froth - there's enough "messiness" here to make for a good tale. Our girl Flo discovers her true heart's desire and along the way makes life better for those around her. Although she does end up with the right man (and you can tell right from the start which one he is) it's not all hearts and roses. Ultimately, it's a satisfying story. READER REVIEW, AMAZON This is the first Maeve Haran book I have read and I loved it! The main character is very likeable and it is easy to empathise with her. The villains are vile and amusing and the rest of the cast loveable and well thought out. I couldn't put it down and cheered at the end. If you want a feel-good read, you can't go wrong with this book. 5-STAR READER REVIEW, AMAZON
