A Tangled Summer by Caroline Kington is a book that I saved for reading in the summer months. It is a fun book with humorous moments of the Tucker family just being themselves.

This books is set in the sleepy village of Summerstoke. Marsh Farm has been in the Tucker family for years. Gran (Elsie) set herself up creating a bedroom, kitchenette and sitting room in the attic when her husband suddenly passed away and allowed her son Jim to take over the farm along with his wife Jenny. But when Jim al
It took me so long to get into this book but when I did (in about the last 3rd) I struggled to put it down. I found at the start with so many plots and subplots that I wasn't really getting to know any of the charcters enough to really have an interest in what would happen to them but as time went on the story did pick up.

Quite a nice, enjoyable story with good writing, fun characters, and multiple plots. This book kept me thoroughly entertained on a five-hour round trip train journey and then I stayed up late to finish it. Very well done - I'll definitely look out for other books by this author. In fact, I have a long train day again tomorrow, maybe the library has some more of hers...

Reread 23/8-27/8/10.
I didn't expect to enjoy this book but it was really great. My only criticism would be that it was, perhaps, a little longer than it had to be. Would definitely recommend as a beach or holiday read.
A wonderful book for a mental escape to the very contemporary English countryside. Full of memorable, eccentric characters. I'm looking forward to more from this author!
a great book. Funny, and hard to put down. A great prequel to Summerstoke Affair. I hope for more summerstoke novels to come!
