I generally do not read comedy but one of his books was recommended to me by a friend and I've been hooked ever since. This is British humour at its best and wildest. The things that happen to his characters and the situations they find themselves in will make you laugh out loud on a train full of strangers at 7:30 in the morning (yes that was me everyone). They will makeup cringe with utter disgust and ponder what would you do. I recommend any of his books to anyone who has a sense of humour and enjoys laughing at the misery of others while knowing it will all turn out okay. This book was no different. Hayley and Danny's relationship and that of the other characters are brilliantly funny and challenging, but also endearing and believable. I will enjoy reading this again and again.
Now that might sound underwhelming, but stick with it. Although the renovation is the thread of the story, it's more about the characters really. The brother and sister owners, the strange architect, his beautiful assistant, the builders, the TV personality and by no means least, Pat The Cow. Who is actually a cow. By this time, I guess that you will have realised that humour looms large in this book and you would not be wrong.
It's funny, interesting, compelling, feel good and at times totally unexpected. It's just a good read really. So there.
It is a thoroughly enjoyable read. Great for holidays, the beach or curled up next to a log fire on a Winter's evening. Great characters, great plot with some fascinating twists and turns. Made me want to read more by this author.
This is the story of a brother and sister who couldn't be more different than each other. They inherit an old, rundown, once magnificent, house in the middle of nowhere. A house which previously no-one in the family had known existed...for a very good reason.
The siblings take on the task of restoring the house to its former glory, to enable them to sell it. It also provides the reason why the house was unknown to anyone.
Along the way we are introduced to a variety of characters who all have their part to play as the story progresses.
Add to the mix a cow, and you've got yourself a book to read which is laugh out loud funny.
I have read all of Nick's books so far, so I can't wait for the next one.
