Favorite Quotes:

The moment Christie’s eyes met Stephen Newbury’s, the attraction was instant. Across a hectic, rowdy pub packed to the rafters with rugby players and hen parties, they homed in on each other like radars. When their gazes locked, time stood still. Stephen’s pint glass hovered mid-drink, whilst Christie halted, her conversation abruptly stopped. An urge between the two pulled like a magnetic force, bringing them together in the thick of the crowds.

To begin with I was dismayed to realise that this was second in a series, but it didn't take long for me to realise that, in amongst my 200 plus books read each year, I had already enjoyed the first!

With new owners of The Templar moving into the village, some changes are afoot but things don't always go to plan. Christie Newbury isn't the only newcomer and it's not long before we're wrapped up in both their lives as well as catching up with the original characters.

This is a lovely second novel!
Donna Maguire

I love the cover for this book and thought that it was a really enjoyable story!

I thought that the story was very well written and has some really developed characters, I warmed to the main characters from the start and at times I just wanted to give them big hugs!

I thought that the book was set at a great pace for the story itself and the author has a brilliant writing style that worked really well with this book. It was a lovely story to be able to relax

Fans of Veronica Henry and Fiona Walker who haven’t yet discovered Sasha Morgan’s delightful, uplifting and feel-good rural romps set in the charming village of Treweham are missing out on a treat. Packed with scandal, secrets and shenanigans, the latest stand-alone instalment of this fabulous series, A Country Dilemma, is an immensely enjoyable tale readers are just going to lap up.

This is an absolutely brilliant read that I loved from start to finish and did not want to put down.

Christie Newbury is excited to be starting a new adventure with her husband in the village of Treweham. They are going to be the new owners of the Templar, the village inn. This is a much needed new start for Christie and Sean as things have not been great with their relationship but this is supposed the fresh start they both need. That is until Sean drops a huge bombshell on Christie that breaks

I have read and loved Sasha's previous two books and I couldn't wait to get hold of a copy of her latest novel. Well ladies and gents the wait is over because Sasha's latest novel called 'A Country Dilemma' was released today (20th February 2020). It's another cracking read and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every single minute of it, but more about that in a bit.
This book came along at the right time for me. I was feeling a little low and in need of a light hearted read that would distract me fro
Oh Christie and David – both so broken by their own separate experiences, but determined to move forward with reworked dreams and chances for new lives. With Christie’s soon to be ex-husband moving on with a co-worker and leaving her to fend for herself with the pub in the Cotswolds, The Templar, she’s hoping that Dermot will agree to help her transition into ownership, at least until his daughter Finula’s wedding.

I’ve enjoyed the first two books in this series, and ‘A Country Dilemma’, is a fitting ending to the trilogy. In many ways, this is my favourite book, perhaps because I am familiar with many of the characters, yet still, get to enjoy a new story, with new characters too. The story is standalone, and you are given the necessary backstory to enjoy it, but it’s such a good series, for those who like country life, with all its peculiarities. Treat yourself, and read all three books.

Christie and her husband decide to relocate to Trewham in the heart of the Cotswolds. Their mission is to buy the village pub, The Templar but at the last minute, her husband reveals he no longer is interested and pulls out, leaving Christie with the only option open to her to go it alone. When she arrives she is greeted by Dermot the owner she is buying from, with his support she decides to give it a go.

This is the third in a series, but I can honestly say that it can be read as a standalone. You are able to catch up with the backstories of the principal characters and quickly get a feel for the dynamics within the village of Treweham. You follow the lives of several couples and are also introduced to two newcomers to the village, Christie and Daniel.

This is an ideal escapist read. The author has said that she writes romance with a bit of 'spice' so if that is your preference, you will be d

Set in Trewenham the setting is idyllic. The history of the characters if turbulent but that is a previous story. Right now we have the heir to the Castle being the apple of his parents eyes, then we have a fairytale wedding of Matt and Finula, we have the sad breakup of Christie and her husband almost on the eve of their setting up a new home and then devastating news of Sebastian's illness and how to cope with it, then Daniel facing his marriage breaking up and fighting a desperate custody bat ...more

This was painful to read, it didn't resonate with me for a long list of reasons.

The characterisation was one dimensional and felt really fake. The characters themselves were bland and uninteresting. The story was too much, half the characters should have been culled from the book to engage the reader more. The descriptions were either overblown or lacking in detail - there was no middle ground. And, the spice the author apparently specialises in was so bad it was almost funny, full of cliches.

I didn’t really enjoy this. The author bio mentions that the author writes romantic fiction with a bit of “spice” but the spice fell flat for me and was almost laughably bad. Lots of the language and descriptions used in the sex scenes read like bad satire.

On top of that none of the characters resonated with me and they all seemed stiff, formal, and fake. Way too much going on in one book to get the reader comfortable and interested in one set of characters. A lot of the dialogue was also stiff

This was a very cute, light hearted- somewhat- read. It switched between 4 or so perspectives- which is one thing I didn’t really like about it. It was easy to follow, I just felt like I was reading a bunch of different books with a bunch of different story lines. It was a bit of a slow read- despite the very short chapters. I felt as if things were over explained, and a lot of unnecessary things were used as fillers. There was a lot of tragedy, yet things still worked out for the best. Overall, ...more

Christie and Daniel both find themselves in the village of Treweham in the Cotswolds. She's moved to buy and run the Templar, a dream she thought she shared with her husband. Not. Now she's got the whole thing on her plate alone. Daniel is looking for a good place for his daughter Emily. Oh, and he's an architect. This is one of those takes a village romances that is fine as a standalone if you haven't read the earlier books. It's light and a tad predictable but a good read for a lazy day. Thank ...more

This is the first book of Sasha Morgan's which I have read and I really enjoyed it. I didn't realise it was part of a series and did enjoy this as a standalone novel. I will now read the other books in the series.

An easy read with a likeable cast of characters set in a lovely village setting. This is a fun, lighthearted read, perfect for a holiday book or a Sunday afternoon.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

Loved reading this story. It was a perfect escape as I read it over a busy Christmas time. I enjoyed the stories of the different characters and how they intertwined as they went about their lives in the Cotswold village. I enjoyed being led through Christie's journey from her arrival at The Templar pub in a state of disaray to... well, I won't spoil the ending for you. ...more

I loved the first 2 novels from the series and it was great to be back at Treweham Hall.

I liked how some of the characters' backstory was revisited as it has been awhile since book 2 and I needed to refresh my memory.

A Country Dilemma is full of Sasha Morgan's signature style, love of the Cotswolds and a laid-back life that characters often dream of but don't always get.

I was sad when Dermot decided to sell up, happy for his daughter's wedding and hopeful then sympathetic for the new owner.

This is a story of the village of Treweham, an estate, a racing stable and a theater company. The population of this community has been in earlier books. Although this is the most recent book in the series, it is easy to follow the action. Characters and situations from previous stories are fully explained to the reader.

This book wraps up other stories as well presenting us with two new characters, Christie and Daniel.
