Swapping her spurs for stilettoes and becoming Lady of the Manor is not on loveable, but scatty, Lottie’s life plan. Nor does she have the faintest idea how to rescue it from rack and ruin.
But with footballer’s wife Sam on the case, determined to bring glamour to the manor, and fun-loving eventer Rory egging them on, nothing can possibly go wrong, can it?
Todd never forgave himself for abandoning Lottie on a Barcelona beach, but now he’s tracked her down and he’s ready to kiss and make up. With a roving eye and his roguish grin he soon has more than one girl in Tippermere going weak at the knees, but why is he really there?
With wedding plans going awry, unexpected pregnancies and relationships starting to look rocky, will Lottie ever be ready to accept her inheritance and help Tipping House Estate move into the 21st Century?
‘Jam packed with horses, dogs, beautiful countryside, crazy characters and a wonderful sense of community...........please let me live in Tippermere!'
'It's fast, it's funny, it's deliciously naughty and it's a bloomin' good read!'
'Country Affairs packs a whole lot of plot lines, and depth into its compact bundle, and is a joy to read.'
'I have a question…WHY ISN’T THIS A TV SERIES ALREADY???'
'Packed with fun, frolics, and an unforgettable cast of characters, Country Affairs is a must-read this summer!'
'will also have you laughing til your sides hurt. Not to mention those scenes that will tug at your heart strings'
'a romantic, squeezy-bum type of sexy read that’s just perfect to enjoy with a few of Lady E’s famously strong G&Ts!'
'incredibly funny read, full of warmth, happiness and this bubbly feeling of optimism and sunshine, and what’s more, with a real depth to it.'
'so well written its like your there too!!'
'Hilarious, sexy and so much fun!'

Racy rating: Stoneley started her career writing erotic fiction, so steer clear of this if you sometimes find Downton Abbey a bit racy. Eventing could definitely do with a few more Rory Steels!
Horse rating: Stoneley clearly knows one end of a martingale from another.
‘Do you know this Australian chap, Charlotte darling? I must say I can understand now why you haven’t rushed to marry Rory.’ Lottie cringed as Lady Elizabeth Stanthorpe’s imperious tone carried clearly over the by now murmuring guests, boy would she kill to be somewhere else. Far, far away. ‘I can imagine he’s very impressive without his clothes on, reminds me of a gardener we once had.’
‘I couldn’t give a monkeys what he looks like without clothes on, we’re supposed to be holding a bloody wedding ceremony. Mine. If he’s not got an invite he can shove off.’
Oh God, if he had to reappear in her life, why did he have to choose right now thought Lottie. Right now was her father’s wedding day, and everybody in Tippermere was there. And all of their family. And of course Rory Steel, top eventer, the man who warmed her bed and her heart. And who, after rescuing the vicar from Merlin’s hooves, had stood by quietly watching.
She glared at Todd, who she hadn’t seen since he’d been marched off a Barcelona beach and out of her life. Shot a warning glance at Elizabeth, her grandmother, which she knew wouldn’t help at all, then glanced anxiously at Rory.
It looked like a massive penny had just dropped with a horrendous clang...
