Publisher's Summary

Nicky Henson reads this hilarious new comedy from the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
The irrepressible Russell "Buffy" Buffery has upped sticks from London and moved to Knockton, Powys, to a B&B inherited from an old flame. With his future spread before him, and a string of failed marriages behind him, Buffy decides it's time for a new challenge.
Meanwhile: Harold's wife has run off with a younger woman leaving him alone with his as-yet-unwritten novel narrated by Mary Pickford's cat; Amy's weedy boyfriend has turned out to be not so needy after all; and Andy's partner's corset-and-suspender-clad attempts at seduction are having anything but the desired effect. They're all lost with nowhere to go, and feeling well past their sell-by dates. So they decide to enrol on "Courses for Divorces" in a sleepy rural town. Under Buffy's tutelage, they find themselves relearning all those skills they never thought they'd need again, and a whole lot more besides.

I did not want the story to end.

This is the first of Debora Moggach's works I had come across and it will not be the last, It was like donning a very comfortable magic feel good bath robe I felt warm comfortable and fully engaged with each of the characters so much so I genuinely did not want the story to end. Thank you Deborah its been a very long time since I felt so cheered by a book I am now looking forward to enjoying your other works.

Entertaining but not outstanding

Whilst I enjoyed this story, I can't say that any of the characters are particularly memorable or that I was desperate to get back to it after each break.



I never felt that the story actually got off the ground.



I didn't particularly enjoy Nicky Henson as the narrator either although his voice is probably reflective of the central character.
