Catherine Alliott, bestselling author of A Rural Affair and One Day in May, asks the question - how many is too many? - in her novel A Crowded Marriage.

There isn't room in a marriage for three . . .

Painter Imogen is happily married to Alex, and together they have a son. But when their finances hit rock bottom, they're forced to accept Eleanor Latimer's offer of a rent-free cottage on her large country estate. If it was anyone else, Imogen would be beaming gratitude. Unfortunately, Eleanor just happens to be Alex's beautiful, rich and flirtatious ex.

And from the moment she steps inside Shepherd's Cottage, Imogen's life is in chaos. In between coping with rude locals, murderous chickens, a maddening (if handsome) headmaster, mountains of manure, and visits from the infuriating vet, she has to face Eleanor, now a fixture at Alex's side.

Is Imogen losing Alex? Will her precious family be torn apart? And whose fault is it really - Eleanor's, Alex's or Imogen's?

Step into Alliott country with A Crowded Marriage.

Our customer reviews

This was an easy read, not much to think about but a little predictable. I would only recommend it if the reader wanted something light and relaxing and didn't expect too much. It wasn't awful, but wasn't great.show more
