Almost any family looks odd from the outside. But the Stantons are odder than most...So when Poppy Hazleton finally succumbs to her boss Davey Stanton's plea that she join him and his family for Christmas, she has no idea what she's letting herself in for. But the invitation to spend Christmas in the country gets Poppy inextricably entangled in the family politics and convoluted machinations of a group of Cornish eccentrics who come complete with their own witch. And even once Poppy has started adjusting to roof races, thistle shooting and the Stantons' increasingly tangled intrigues over who gets to inherit the crumbling family pile, there's still her adolescent monkey to be dealt with. Not to mention the rather more tempting problem of Davey's gorgeous younger brother.

Praise for" Capers in the Sauce: "Like going to the most outrageous party and somehow avoiding the hangover. Pure pleasure." - Katie Fforde "From the Hardcover edition.About the Author:
Laura Lockington was born in Kent but, via interludes in Cornwall, Florence and London, has now settled in Brighton. She has been married, more than once, but vows never to do it again - at least not unless too many vodka martinis prevail over her better judgement. She has had a varied career, working in TV, films, theatre and interior design, but in 1999 abandoned the rat race to write her first novel, Capers in the Sauce. She has grown out of clubbing and taken up cooking for friends instead, but is a firm believer in one's unalienable right to behave disreputably if necessary.
