If you don't like cynical/ sarcastic book reviews, then please don't read any further.

Trouble is...I don't like soap operas. Despite close involvement with a couple over the years, I've never really "got" them.
Trouble is... this book was (attempted to be) written like a soap opera.
Trouble is... soap operas work OK on TV, where you identify characters visually as well as by name and situation.
Trouble is... you only have 4 or 5 story lines running simultaneously in a TV soap opera

In this edition of life in Prior's Ford, as the title declares, there is trouble. Trouble appears in all sorts of places. Even life in a bucolic location can be interfered with by disease, social unrest, greed, dreams of early inheritances, and romances not going easily.

Prior's Ford decides to hold a Scarecrow Festival. This should bring in needed tourist monies and also entertain the villagers themselves. Everyone gets aboard, except for some lads from a neighboring village who entertain themse

You know what I like about this series of books? How easily one volume flows from one to another. Volume 3 starts off with the same two characters who closed Volume 2, but seven months down the line. AND there is much less instant coffee consumed than in the previous two volumes! *shock horror*

Trouble in Priors Ford focuses on different characters again than in the previous books: the fun and games at Tarberhill Farm; a resident who is scared of scarecrows; one mother's quite weird ideas of "mot

This series is one of those cozy village stories that I inexplicably love. Usually not a fan of serials, but this one isn't all loaded with sunshine and tends to be more realistic about various problems. Set in fictional Prior's Ford, a village in Scotland, the book visits several of its residents and tells their stories. As this is the third in series, they've already become like friends and I know their quirks and foibles. Enjoyed this as my light, bedtime read and looking forward to the next ...more

Third in the series. Not better than the first or second, but still well written and a good read. A few new characters are introduced and old ones are on with their busy lives. New characters are Caravan Travelers that have parked in Victor's field and he is not happy about it. Others feel differently. Andrew and family are facing a serious issue and learning to cope. Naomi, the minister, is one of my favorite characters, her wisdom and loving attitude add greatly to the book.

The third in the "Priors Ford" series, about the folks that live in a country village. Its an easy pleasant read and not too taxing. There's a large cast of characters to get to grips with but they are well written and believable. If you like Rebecca Shaw's country village series, this is very similar.

An enjoyable enough read which follows on easily from the previous story. A bit lacking in excitement though!
