Masterfully told in typical Catherine Alliott fashion, Catherine once again delivers a belly full of laughter as Molly, the key protagonist, makes her life a whole load more complicated and messy, long after the unexpected death of her husband, as she gets caught up in too many relationships of the opposite sex all at one time and without ever really meaning to do so. All of it complicated by her existence in rural Herefordshire on a farm that she never wanted to run, her grown up children, some of which just haven't grown up and then what might otherwise be her saviour, inheriting a beautiful house in London that she never expected. Can Molly get her life in order before she loses everything?

If you like Catherine Alliott you might also like to read books by Jane Green, Katie Fford and Sheila O'flanagan.

Synopsis

About Last Night ... by Catherine Alliott

Molly is living the country dream in rural Herefordshire. Except it's not her dream - it's her dead husband David's dream, and it's beginning to feel more like a nightmare. Between running a mail-order lingerie business and repackaging soaps from Newcastle as Savon de Provence, Molly is barely making ends meet.

About the Author

Catherine Alliott

Catherine Alliott was our Guest Editor in August 2013 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Catherine Alliott started her first novel under the desk when she worked as an advertising copywriter. She was duly fired. With time on her hands she persevered with the novels, which happily flourished. In the early days she produced a baby with each book, but after three she stuck to writing as it was less painful. She writes with the nearest pen in exercise books, either in the garden or on a sofa. Home is a rural spot in Hertfordshire which she shares with her family and a menagerie of horses, cows, chickens and dogs, which at the last count totalled 34 beating hearts, including her husband.

Fellow novelist SOPHIE KING on CATHERINE ALLIOTT

I first met Catherine because my youngest son was at school with her son. Catherine writes her novels in the first person which immediately makes you feel you know the heroine. I love all her books, including the latest The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton : I usually spot other people's twists but I didn't get this one until it jumped up and hit me off the page.

Q. Who is your style icon?

Q. What is so your idea of perfect happiness?
A. So corny. All my children plus boyfriends, girlfriends, any other friends and of course my husband, eating around the same table. Or actually, a table somewhere hot, on holiday, abroad, i.e. without me having to cook. Oh - and grandparents too.

Q. What is the trait you most deplore in others?
A. Deplore. Golly. Quite strong. Well I'm not mad about bad manners which come in many guises.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
