I love Katie Fforde books,to me they are like you favourite warm comfy sweater. Warm and reassuring. Paradise fields, was enjoyable but not one of Ffordes best. I found the lead character Nel, very self deprecating which became annoying after a while. But I did find the supporting characters better written, especially the 'sensible' boyfriend Simon. I found the fight for the fields a written very disjointedly and uninspiring at times. If this was a school report I would grade this as C+, needs to try harder.
