Review – Country Affairs by Zara Stoneley

  Sequel, sequel, sequel…that’s what I chanted when I read Stable Mates…and YES, I got a sequel…so this week, I’m sort of giddy to be reviewing this book! (I also chanted Rory, Rory, Rory a lot too…

 About the Book

  ‘A great treat for readers who love their books jam-packed with sexy men and horses.’ Bestselling author Fiona Walker

It’s time to get back in the saddle with the follow up to the deliciously naughty Stable Mates!

Swapping her spurs for stilettoes and becoming Lady of the Manor is not on loveable, but scatty, Lottie’s life plan. Nor does she have the faintest idea how to rescue it from rack and ruin.
But with footballer’s wife Sam on the case, determined to bring glamour to the manor, and fun-loving eventer Rory egging them on, nothing can possibly go wrong, can it?

Todd never forgave himself for abandoning Lottie on a Barcelona beach, but now he’s tracked her down and he’s ready to kiss and make up. With a roving eye and his roguish grin he soon has more than one girl in Tippermere going weak at the knees, but why is he really there?

With wedding plans going awry, unexpected pregnancies and relationships starting to look rocky, will Lottie ever be ready to accept her inheritance and help Tipping House Estate move into the 21st Century?

Praise for Stable Mates –

‘A delightful romp peppered with humour, sadness, scandal and steamy sex.’
‘…reminded me of Jilly Cooper whose books I grew up with. Stable Mates is up there with Riders and Rivals. If you loved these books then you will love this one’

‘…the perfect mix of horsey shenanigans, Cheshire glamour and flirty fun.’

‘…reminded me of the Tilly Bagshawe novels I love, with all the scandal and drama. I don’t think I’ve read another author who writes in that kind of style without finding negative comparisons but Zara Stoneley comes into her own’ 

‘a really impressive read.’ 

‘Fun, Frothy & a Good Weekend Read’

‘An unexpected FUN read that should not be missed by anyone. I would say I laughed at almost every page! ‘

My Review

Wow, I’m just going to go ahead and say…I loved it. It has all the drama, horses and hot men of Stable Mates and yet somehow, more…there’s a new hot man to imagine (I see a Hemsworth) and to stack up against the hot men from the first book…(For Rory, I’m thinking a bit Hiddleston…Mick, a lot Aidan Turner) but I digress…Lottie is as scatty and loveable as before, while the other ladies in the book play equally important roles, especially Elizabeth, who deserves her own Olympic medal for meddling (pardon the pun) 

What I loved about Stable Mates, is here again in Country Affairs. Taking the interesting equestrian world, adding some aristocrats and a hell of a lot of spice, is a recipe for success. I’ve tried to get Zara to confirm there’ll be more, but her lips are sealed…here’s hoping. 


A signed paperback copy of Stable Mates is up for grabs for UK residents, and an E-book copy of the international readers here! Click below!
