The Grass Is Greener is written in Loretta Hill's usual warm and witty style, with a cast of well drawn characters against a backdrop of the wild and beautiful Western Australian landscape. Although a seemingly "neat" solution, the plot is plausible and the elements relating to the legal world and wine making come across as true to life. Romance also features strongly in the storyline, with seemingly unsuitable suitors for both women appearing to complicate things a little further. Themes of family estrangement, loyalty, guilt, parental expectation and ultimately love and togetherness round out this satisfying story.
All in all The Grass Is Greener is an easy and enjoyable read that will leave you eagerly awaiting Loretta Hill's next title.
