    Very readableThoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written book! I felt completely involved with the characters, their description's were perfect. These same with the estate and country side. I can't wait to read the next book in the collection.

    James applies for the job of deputy estate agent for a large estate in central England. He is in for a surprise at the odd things that will occur in his new role. He has to deal with the lady of the estate taking money out of their accounts to support redecorating in the main house and tea room that are open to tourists, rogue sheep, and a lord who while well intentioned, really only has interests in his pet projects and not the management of the estate as a whole. There are some positives to his new life, including a lovely young girl, Sophie, who works in the office with him. He manages to negotiate his position, and juggle a slightly precarious relationship with Sophie, while maintaining a good sense of humor and building his own mini farm as well. While this is a pleasant, light read, the title probably should not boast of hilarious tales.

    Still not sure about this one, there are a fair few spelling errors in the copy I have... There were a few funny moments, but other parts were a bit too rambling. There were a few repetitive parts and there were some parts where the description of the events didn't live up to the build up or where the subject changed mid way through the telling of the anecdote, chapters didn't appear to equate to a single tale either.I presume that it is fiction as the main character's name is not that of the author, but usually books of a similar nature (certainly those that I have read previously) are memoirs & at least based in factual events. I didn't hate this one, I even enjoyed parts of it, but I wouldn't read it again and overall I was a little bit disappointed with it.

    Based on the title I was expecting this to be hilariously funny. It actually uses the word hilarious on the cover. No. Not funny. Maybe a little smile every now and then but definitely not funny. Cute maybe. I guess I was expecting a James Herriott laugh out loud kind of country adventure. But this was just bland and made me wonder why it was published - it is not bad but it is nothing original or out of the ordinary. I'll come back to my favourite comment this year "I just don't get it."

    Funny stories of how James Arden has to deal with Lord and Lady Leghorn owners of the estate he helps manage. Lady Leghorn spends a fortune and expects her every wishes to be obeyed. The Lord of the manor has some crazy ideas but everyone has to go along with it. James gets distracted by Sophie his pre college assistant.

    Read for my book club. Oddly enough this was a better reading experience when under the wrong impression that it was a non-fiction set of memoirs and anecdotes. It was pleasant but several humorous scenes were cut short rather than diving into outright farce.

    I was even more amused to realize that these tales are based in reality! I adore English country life fantasies and this glimpse into that world was such a treat for me. I did laugh out loud a few times and I will be coming back for more in this series!

    Never buy a book with hilarious in the title and expect it to be funny!
