Product description

Amazon Review

Alan Titchmarsh, the best known gardener novelist in Britain, extends his patch with his novel, Animal Instincts. Expectedly funny and warm, Animal Instincts also has a distinct tinge of social commentary. The central figure is one Kit Lavery, who is returning to bucolic Devon, after ten enjoyable years in the Aussie Outback, so as to sort out the parlous estate of his deceased dad. It is all Kit can do not to leap on the next plane home when he meets the scarily modern women presiding over his father's penniless eco-empire: feisty Elizabeth, polemical Jess.

Love, naturally, will bloom in this seemingly unpromising soil. Before it does Titchmarsh deftly sketches an engaging plot that touches on delicate countryside issues like fox hunting, conservancy and the class system, without ever getting tendentious or dull--and without losing the quintessentially pleasant and light-hearted tone. --Sean Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A well thoughtful read and how life isn't as straight forward as we would like it to be. Liked the way it twists and turns right to the end. Could even visualize the beautiful Devon country side.

Enjoyed this as my first Alan Titchmarsh novel- only read his Biography before.

Could relate to the countrylife described.

Unfortunately I'm not a lover of romance novels, so shouldn't really comment. Found it starts slow, picks up a bit in middle. Had to force myself to read to end.

It was so easy to read, pleasant but sad at times. Some what believable, lovely descriptions of the Devon countryside.
