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.

Funny, light hearted & great narration
Was recommended to read this, but didn’t really want to, so I got the audio instead, very glad I did. Great narration, funny, and light-hearted enough to make two (otherwise dreadful) massive train journeys really enjoyable…. Perfect for a holiday listen or a commute and well worth a credit. I’ll definitely give Best Exotic Marigold Hotel a listen now.
