Book Description

3 Nov 2011
The enchanting sequel to A Countryman's Lot, which told the story of Max Hardcastle's move to the Yorkshire Dales and the richness of life as an antiques dealer, The Luck of a Countryman contains an array of eccentric characters and curious situations which are guaranteed to delight and amuse. Old favourites reappear in new -- and sometimes alarming -- situations. And a myriad of new personalities join in the ups and downs of life in the Dales. Life is not all plain sailing, but the Hardcastles join in wholeheartedly with the trials and triumphs that beset the peaceful village of Ramsthwaite. How will they ever shift Thievin' Jack's van from the pond? And will the wedding of the year go off smoothly?

I bought this for my husband, who throughly enjoyed the first one in the series. Again he couldn't put it down and enjoyed every minute, can't wait for the next one to be realised in March.

5.0 out of 5 stars The characters develop really well 17 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I hadn't expected to like 'A Countryman's Lot', so I was pleasantly surprised that my dislike of antiques did not detract from a thoroughly good read. However, books like this are all about characters and stories, and in this second installment they become more engaging and entertaining. After the introductions of the first book, we get some real depth to the 'regulars' and the writing improves accordingly. The stories seem to have greater resonance, and the descriptive precis allows enough space for imagery and imagination to have prevail. I thoroughly recommend all three books currently available. The third is the best, but it would not be appropriate without the development of the people and the village life that this book encapsulates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny in Places 13 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I liked this book, even though the story bounced about abit. I thought it would carry on from " A Country Man's Lot", but it did'nt.
I still liked the story though, funny in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort reading 14 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was given two other books in this series which I read on holiday and really got into the whole feel of the village community and all the different characters, some real laugh out loud moments. It took a while to get into but once I did I was hooked. I would recommend to anyone who likes an easy read with a good feel good factor and characters you get to know and can really feel close to
