9780099501671: The Vacillations Of Poppy Carew

Poppy Carew has just been dumped by her unscrupulous boyfriend, Edmund, when her beloved and eccentric father dies, leaving Poppy one last request - that she ensure he is buried in style by a 'fun' undertaker - and one large fortune.

Carrying out his wishes, Poppy finds not only a fun funeral parlour, and an equally fun wake peopled with very generous old ladies who all seem to know her father very well, but also several eligible young men, all of whom are keen to get to know the new heiress. And when Edmund remembers the charms that he quickly forgot in the arms of his new lover, Venetia, there are suddenly too many choices for Poppy Carew...

Review:

"Prances and bubbles along with the gay insouciance of a compulsive storyteller" ( Observer)

"Mary Wesley is high-spirited and inventive, and keeps her wayward plot moving forward at a spanking pace" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Wesley's narration is as fast and surprising as ever; her subplots are well worked out and rich in detail" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"A charming love story and social comedy" (Philip Howard The Times)

"Once again she deploys her admirably comic skill to good effect; puncturing the pompous, exposing humbug, nudging our perceptions in the direction of the absurd" ( Financial Times)

From the Publisher:

A lively and entertaining romp through England and Africa
