The long-awaited sparkling new novel by the author of LIONS AND LIQUORICE.
Teddie is a secretary to an MP until they are discovered breakfasting in dressing gowns on her Pimlico terrace. The resulting tabloid frenzy sends her hightailing it back to Yorkshire, where her family is from and where she sets up a catering establishment in the local market town. Her brother, the squire of a local stately home, and sister-in-law greet her with open arms thinking Teddie can sort out their marriage, but Teddie is more concerned with arranging her own - until she is distracted by her new acquaintance, the vile, gorilla-like, Eastender and painter Bill, who's moved in next door with his ghastly dog and dysfunctional life...
