Tongue in Cheek by Fiona Walker

I started reading Fiona Walker’s books very recently having been a huge fan of Jilly Cooper for years and hearing that Fiona Walker’s novels were similar. I was sceptical but I purchased French Relations, Well Groomed and Kiss and Tell and read them in order.

I absolutely loved them! I couldn’t believe I had found another author who could write such fabulous characters, gripping plots and rather naughty scenes. I loved the trilogy and therefore decided to read the Oddlode books, as some of the characters from them play a major role in Kiss and Tell, and I wanted to know more about them. I bought all four of them: Lots of Love, Tongue In Cheek, Four Play and Love Hunt. I read Lots of Love and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have just finished this one, Tongue In Cheek, and I have to say I found it to be a fabulous book. I thought the characters were interesting and appealing. There was a very complicated and intricate central plot with various other plotlines cleverly interwoven and compelling. I couldn’t put the book down. In fact, all five of the Fiona Walker books that I have read so far have made me stay awake till the early hours, fighting sleep because I wanted to know what happened next.

I can’t wait to get started on the third of the quartet, Four Play. I do think that Tash and Hugo Beauchamp are my ultimate favourite characters, and of the five I have read Kiss and Tell is my favourite book. I would recommend them to anyone. A great read, bursting with drama, romance, humour, sex and horses. What more could anyone want? And coming from a confirmed Jilly Cooper fan, that’s saying something!
