The big day has arrived. It's here! Country Lovers is available in hardback and ebook from all good bookshops and online retailers: In time-honoured tradition, we've sought celebrity endorsements far and wide, but they are jolly slow readers these A-listers, and so - with apologies for making everyone's fingers look like sausages - I've taken … Continue reading Country Lovers is out now!
