Publisher's Summary

Matilda Poliport, recently widowed, has decided to End It All. But her meticulously planned bid for graceful oblivion is foiled, and when she later foils the suicide attempt of another lost soul - Hugh Warner, on the run from the police - life begins again for both.
But life also begins to throw up nasty secrets and some awkward questions: just what was Matilda’s husband Tom doing in Paris? How is the soon-to-be-knighted John (or Piers as he likes to be called) involved? Was Louise more than just a lovely daughter? And why did Hugh choose Matilda as his saviour?
Jumping the Queue, brimming over with confidence and black humour, is Mary Wesley’s brilliant debut novel.

Not Mary Wesleys best!

Not keen on the story line

If you’ve listened to books by Mary Wesley before, how does this one compare?

Part of the Furniture & The Camomile Lawn are my favourites, I also liked Not That Sort of Girl, this one was not in the same class.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There wasn't really a scene I could pick out.

If this book were a film would you go see it?
