9780099513063: Second Fiddle

Laura Thornby is independent, individual and perfectly in control of her life. Her affairs are brief but delightful, her career fulfilling and she copes with her two rather peculiar relatives and the gossip about her parentage with wryness and humour.

But then she meets twenty-three-year old Claude, a struggling writer, and she is overcome by an irresistible desire to interfere, manipulate and experiment - all for his own good, of course.

What Laura does not foresee, however, are the possibilities that one day Claude may actually complete his novel and that she may well fall in love.

Review:

"A witty, chatty book" ( The Times)

" Second Fiddle will delight the healthily growing number of Mary Wesley enthusiasts and offer a delicious treat to those who have yet to discover this unique author" ( Punch)

"She writes like an avenging angel, with a freshness, vigour and zest for sex (but never for sleaze) that belie her years. The lovely Miss Wesley has a steel-tipped talent" ( Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

'A book that is as rich and funny as you would expect from Mary Wesley' - Cosmopolitan
