Alliott is a new author to me and I ended up buying two of her other books after reading this one. An ok book, but certainly not the best Catherine Alliott book I’ve ever read.
Like a lot of the Brit-lit I have read, there is a lot going on throughout the book and it is sometimes hard to keep up with who is who but it all works together in the long run.
Since I am still somewhat a newbie when it comes to English chick lit, I found myself using the dictionary every so often, but I enjoyed that my vocabulary is expanding! This book felt long and boring at times, I skipped on pages and still caught up with the story, I thankfully had this book from the Library.

Jan 30, LMG rated it it was amazing. Apr 21, Emmy rated it really liked it Shelves: Such a fun read. I love Catherine Alliott’s books, have read most of them and never been disappointed yet. I do not usually enjoy books in which the heroine gets herself into ridiculous situations but these were fun -and more importantly, believable- and balanced by some really good sarcastic humor, and there isn’t much slapstick.
That comes when she finds out who Phil really was and what he was up to.
As it turns out she will need Sam to help with more than the will after a young woman claims that she was Phil’s lover for years and that he was leaving her a part of his estate. I knew how it was going to end, but I still enjoyed all the goings-on of Poppy Shilling and her friends.
