Cold Enough to Freeze Cows

£8.99     BUY THIS BOOK

Iestyn and Menna have known each other since school, but the path of true love is rarely a smooth oneÂ… Particularly when it's a rough farm track obstructed by a raging torrent. It takes a series of unusual events in and around the small mid-Wales town of Dros-y-Bryn to make them realise what they've been missingÂ…

Johnny 'Sandwich' Brechan is a ladies man par excellence – flitting from one illicit dalliance to another, nary a female safe from his attentions. Until that is, one lonely night, a voice in the distance calling for help turns him from flirt to family man in a matter of hours.

Esther is struggling to love her husband and daughter, whose selfishness knows no bounds – despite her own physical frailty. Her venom needs an outlet where it can do no lasting harm and thanks to a recent foray into the world of computing she might just have found a way to vent her spleen and do some good in the world.

Fate has a lot to answer for – and spares no-one's blushes in this wickedly humorous look at the frailities of man - and woman…

Praise for Lorraine Jenkin

"funny and feel-good... gloriously off-the-wall plot"
