From the very first day that they move to the Oddlode Valley, it's inevitable that young teacher Mo Stillitoe, recently separated socialite Diana Lampeter and cool, retired dressage diva Anke Brakespear will find their lives entangled. Despite their differing generations and backgrounds, the women are on a relocation collision course. As inept removal men deliver furniture - and even horses - to the wrong houses, other moves are being made…
Mo's bad-boy lover takes Diana's eye, Anke's flirtatious husband immediately suggests Mo hop into bed with him - and Diana's local heartthrob brother comes joyfully face to face with the Danish ice-maiden he posted on his wall as a teenager. As a long, hot Indian summer burns its embers into winter, the newcomers settle into their beautiful frost-hugged surroundings, generating enough heat to melt every heart in Oddlode.
New passions ignite and old flames are fanned amid the honeyed villages, enchanted gardens, haunted parkland and raucous country social life.The heat is on, and sparks fly - but is this just a flash in the pan or is somebody fuelling the fire?

Loved it.

I had read the book before and loved the story so I decided to listen this time. I enjoyed it second time around just as much and would recommend it as a lovely easy listen.

Great story line

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. The story has a 1000 characters and a ton of plot lines, but you just want to keep reading to see what becomes of them all.

What other book might you compare Tongue in Cheek to, and why?

The Summer Wedding, same author, and a great mix of characters.

Which character – as performed by Beth Chalmers – was your favourite?

Diana Lampeter, she was a fun character to listen to.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

TOWIE, Made in Chelsea, Dallas, Eastenders, Emmerdale all rolled into one leafy part of the Cotwolds

Any additional comments?

Please keep Beth Chalmers as narrator, she does an amazing job at projecting the characters and adjust her voice to suit
