I read it in one sitting
Book 5 in a wonderful series. No spoilers but highlights and lowlights – lots of both. Let’s see… new members of the household, a potager (veggie garden), pheasant midwifery, fascinating archeology, a grape harvest, Christmas celebrations and tapas in the middle of country France. Add the predictable tussles with machinery, fencing, invasive critters, weather, mud, escaping poultry and of course, Jack (grumpy softie), and you can see why I read it in one sitting.
