Publisher's Summary

Some say Gretyl is loud, hairy, and obnoxious. Others are less complimentary.
Buckle up for a comedic rollercoaster ride, with bad wigs, waxing disasters, holiday scams, a deluded hitman, lust, arson, and murder.
After 50 years of marriage, Gretyl Trollop is thinking of a new life, somewhere hot. Her husband, Albert, is thinking of the crematorium. She's thinking of stuffing herself in a bikini. He's thinking of a taxidermist. The Londoners continue their separate lives until a mysterious letter turns their world upside down.
In Essex, Dave and Sharon Soddall are struggling on benefits and looking for a get-rich-quick solution. With the help of a devious financial advisor, they concoct a plan and Costa Soddall Travel is born.
Will the Soddalls pull off the con of a lifetime? Can Gretyl be silenced? Will Albert end up missing Gretyl?

Fun but thoughtful

A fun story that comes to life with this narrator. It has thoughtful moments. Gretyls husband usually being the one who brings those moments about. Not Gretyl herself, who is a rather annoying and irritating! All part of the story mind!
To me this is an updated fun book with a reminder of Tom Sharpe back in the day.
Def worth listening to or reading.

This book is Funny

Would you listen to Missing Gretyl again? Why?

I loved this book, I loved the variety of characters and their antics, I loved the story, This book kept me amused the whole way through, Just reading the title make me smile thinking about it, its a pretty down to earth plot about a nagging wife who receives a inheritance and goes on holiday to Spain......but then agin its not,

What was one of the most memorable moments of Missing Gretyl?

I tried to think of 1 most memorable moment, but there are just too many and if I tried to explain them here I would just sound a little odd, but regardless I would love to read more books like this one, theres just not enough GOOD humour around.

What does Melanie Crawley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I think Melanie Crawley did a fantastic job of narrating this book, she bought all the characters to life for me.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh..........really laugh!!

Any additional comments?

I would compare this book to the best of Tom Sharpe maybe even better
