Love in the Afternoon and Other Delights

eBooks of the Month Family Drama

LoveReading View on Love in the Afternoon and Other Delights

A strange miscellany – this is a collection of ten of her short stories as well as a few other musings about life. Lighter and much, much shorter than her usual blockbusting novels, fans will enjoy but those new to her should start elsewhere. Each story spins a new heroine in a new scenario from an anxious young mum to the unexpected challenges of being a grandmother via many other of life’s challenges for modern women.

Love in the Afternoon and Other Delights Synopsis
