This review is from: The Exmoor Files: How I Lost A Husband And Nearly Found Rural Bliss (Paperback)
Far too much name dropping and information about expensive alternative horse care.
Having read Liz's column in The Mail On Sunday over the past few years, I did not feel this book contained a great deal of new material, and yes, the ex husband does get mentioned a lot (he is in the book's title after all).
Not a 'feel good' book, in fact towards the end I was desperately hoping to read that she had decided to move back to London, as her constant negativity and mounting financial problems became quite depressing.

Don't bother with the book if you wanted Exmoor
I came across this book in an Amazon search for Exmoor. I'ved lived abroad since 1980 and was happily ignorant of the author's existence.
Read some pages on the site, seemed mildly amusing. However, it never improves on that, and mostly isn't at all funny, far from it. Gets really gloomy towards the end.
When I Googled Liz Jones, found that back in 2006, she seemed to be a pleasant, interesting journalist. Then she, and the Daily Mail, hit on a winning formula and she hasn't stopped since: nasty, bitchy, and a lot of untruths.
This book is probably a hastily thrown together mix of previously published columns in the Mail, is misleading (read another journalist's articles), and the only reason for its existence is that she needed to make some money quickly.
