Gin And It

Gin And It By Elaine Sturgess

 

A story of sex, lies and sellotape in the British Countryside...

When Frankie and Rachel move to an idyillic but remote country village, they expect to be the lone lesbians and everyone's new topic of titillation. Will they be the subject of local gossip and speculation and regarded as outsiders? As they settle into their new home, they unexpectedly find their shock value pales into insignificance when the underbelly of village life is revealed...

A series of bizarre events raise questions that beg for answers: What do the goat keeping vicar and the postmistress do in the field opposite first thing every morning? Why does one of their elderly neighbours keep flipping the finger at them in the street? How come the church is permanently closed? What’s behind the village’s pride in its two prostitutes (one for locals, one for incomers)? Why did the previous house owner keep his cock in the pantry? How come the place is flooded with CCTV cameras? And what is this mysterious “Club” everyone refers to?

As the intrigue builds, Rachel is determined to uncover the truth, but gets caught in a web of sex, lies and post office sellotape that tests her relationship and tears at the net curtain fabric of their village life.

A racy mystery and a love story told with a twist of humour and based loosely on real life...
