Publisher's Summary

The ultimate laugh-out-loud, good life, meet the eccentric locals, house-hunting, foodie, travel-tour, fun memoir. There were highs, heartbreaks and cliff-hangers as British-born author Diz White scrambled between the Cotswolds, looking for a bargain cottage, and Hollywood taking every hilariously wacky acting job to earn the down payment. Her search doubles as a travel-tour and on her journey she was charged by Chasin' Mason, the bull, auditioned for a horse’s hind end and trampled by 30 children while wearing a bear suit. But her fondness for this region gave her a sense of community missing from her busy urban life. Will her dream become reality? Find out in this witty love note to the Cotswolds.

    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    "Pleasing and often, hilarious"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if said friend was interested in the Cotswold and travel and food.


    If you’ve listened to books by Diz White before, how does this one compare?

    This is the only book by her you have on Audible, so do not know. I think she is a wonderful reader and has a great, inviting voice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the auction scene.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This question is meaningless to me.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read, with lots of detail and hilarious moments. It was charming in every way. I would love to read a follow-up, once the couple is settled into their cottage in the Cotswolds. I'd buy it.

    "Memories"

    Great to listen to the Cotswold scenes being described so well. Took me back to my youth and brought back lots of memories.

    "Cotswolds Memoir"

    I really enjoyed this book. The author was the perfect narrator. I'm originally from England but live in the USA. The story made me nostalgic for home.
    It was entertaining as well as very informational. Now I want to visit The Cotswolds. Thank you for a great trip

    "A fun and informative memoir!"

    The story of Diz and Randy's sojourn was intimate and hilarious. The journey was certainly worth it. Diz is a captivating storyteller. I'm hungry!

    "Fit my taste perfectly"

    Not everyone will love this memoir as I did. You have to enjoy just sitting and listening to conversation all afternoon. I now believe Diz White would be one of the best conversational afternoons I could spend.

    This memoir doesn't have a cliff-hanger plot or offer deep philosophical insights. But it does offer the listener a wonderful few months of house-hunting in the Cotswolds, made delightful by the conversation of the writer/narrator. Highly recommended for those whose taste run in that direction.
