Publisher's Summary

Colin and Izzy Griggs' traditional farming way of life is under threat from red tape. Colin just wants to farm and not be a pen-pusher. Desperate for new ideas, he takes inspiration from a doughnut and sets up a "Hole Farming Business".
His first job is to supply 18 holes for the newly refurbished golf course. Colin's ineptness leads to a number of incidents surrounding the grand opening, creating an archenemy of the Club's Captain, Major Woods.
His business is given a much needed boost by the arrival of Lady Wills into the Manor House. She requires holes for her ornate ponds, but before awarding the contract needs a reference from Colin's previous employer, Major Woods.
How will Colin manage to get the reference he needs to save his business? How exactly do you manage to farm holes? And who is really wearing the stockings in the Griggs household?
Set in the rural village of Henslow, The Hole Opportunity is a true English farce with miscommunication, double entendre, humorous plotlines, and a host of memorable characters.

The \Hole Story!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hole Opportunity to be better than the print version?

I never read the printed version, but I laughed all the way through the audiobook. "I'm a HOLE farmer!!"

Who was your favorite character and why?

Collin was my favorite character because of his ideas. They were so out there and you just knew they were going to go wrong....somehow...

Have you listened to any of Pete Nottageā€™s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time I have listened to this reader. He did a good job since I could tell everyone apart, which for me is what a good reader does. :-)

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

Funny and engaging

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook - especially the British humor. I usually listen to mysteries and adventures so this book had that nice touch of zaniness that had me laughing and going back to listen again. Very fun book when you need a break and want a few laughs.
