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.

Pleasing and often, hilarious
Yes, if said friend was interested in the Cotswold and travel and food.
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.
I liked the auction scene.
This question is meaningless to me.
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.
