The books centres around a television programme about Wraggsbottom Farm, which is at the centre of the village and the residents who live there. These range from celebrities to wealthy politicians to the village vicar, who is non too happy about the camera crews!
I struggled to get into this and nearly gave up but something kept me going. For me, there are slightly too many characters and it was tricky to keep track of them all. I did really like the character of Laura and was rooting for her but struggled with Macy. Never a more selfish character have I come across.
This was ok to while away a few hours but I have definitely read better. I also think you need to read the inheritance first before this one, as it will make more sense.
Wraggsbottom farm is Gabe and Laura Baxter's life, but times are hard and the lure of the small screen calls out to Laura, could her television career rise like a phoenix to save their rural idyll and their livelihood which means so much to them or will jealously, politics, pride and vengeance all around the valley get in their way. Be careful what you wish for...the grass isn't always greener...you know the story but Tilly Bagshawe makes it a great read.
