In February, I blogged about the photo-shoot for the paperback jacket of The Country Set, which was enormous fun and heroically warm-hearted despite a very cooold day. Not that you’d know the Beast from the East was just over the horizon from the gorgeously classy and just slightly steamy finished cover, starring two ravishing real-life event riders, Claire Deuten and Spencer Sturmey, and darling Toots the spaniel who had just become a new mum.
With all Toots’ puppies now rollicking around in their new homes, the sun finally blazing, the toenails painted and the grass growing, it really feels like summer’s on its way, doesn’t? I’m rooting for the renaissance of the big British romp across the worlds’ sunbeds, deckchairs and garden benches this year. Goodness knows we all need cheering up.
The Country Set will be coming out in paperback on 14th June. You can click on Toots below to pre-order.
