Product Description

Product Description

Northwest England in the year 2007 and the future looks bleak.

Jack and Caroline Smith are an ordinary couple, with a new house and a young son, and like many ordinary couples are struggling with debt, redundancy and the imminent loss of their home.

Is it time for a modern fairy tale?

Jack comes home one day with lots of money and a pair of old pants. He claims that he bought the old trousers because he noticed a £10 note in the pocket and that now every time he puts his hand in this pocket he pulls out £10.

Caroline doesn’t believe him. Who would believe such a story, a fairy tale? But the money is real enough and soon they start to spend it.

Cars, holidays, houses, clothes, and horses --- Caroline buys lots of horses --- and a farm to keep them on.

But what can happen in 2007 when you have lots of cash, that you can’t account for?

Soon friends, work colleagues, tax authorities, social workers, police and criminals, all with their own agendas and desires, become interested in Mr and Mrs Smith. Soon everyone is asking where the money really comes from and how to get their share of it.

So in the end, do the Smith family live happy ever after? Let's find out.

First edition published on Kindle under the pen name Harry Ellis.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read. 15 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A really enjoyable book. I love the way the author explores the reactions of different characters when one man suddenly finds himself in an improved financial position from an unusual source. A disbelieving wife, jealous workmates, curious tax inspectors, suspicious police officers and a benefits officer with her own agenda!

A believable modern day fairy story.

4.0 out of 5 stars a pocketful of enjoyment 16 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
a good book for me is one where the pages turn themselves and Pocket Money does that. A real life fairy story but one which makes you wonder what you would do in the same position. By and large very well paced, nice light summer time reading (even though its the winter) and a good debut. Certainly can't go wrong at 99p.
