The Show

The second book in the Swell Valley series

Surrounded by rolling fields and filled with idyllic stone cottages, the chocolate box village of Fittlescombe is the jewel in the Sussex crown. But battlelines are about to be drawn – and this time it’s even more deadly than cricket . . .

When Wraggsbottom Farm’s finances are squeezed, Laura Baxter has an idea to show the world the secret of her happy (if sometimes muddy) country life: producing a reality show about Fittlescombe village.

But when the new vicar, ‘Call-me-Bill’ Clempson takes it upon himself to lead the anti-Valley Farm Show protest, Laura and her husband Gabe find that the village is divided. And when newcomer MP ‘Fast’ Eddie Wellesley draws attention for all the wrong reasons, opposition comes from some unexpected places too . . .

With so much at stake for her village and her marriage, will Laura be able to weather the storm, or will her big idea turn out to be her biggest mistake?
