Product description


'Energetic, witty and brimming with good sense, Cheek's astute social comedies point out to receptive ears the pitfalls of love, sex, and the contradictory mess that is the female state.' -- Independent

'Like Joanna Trollope, she combines a sharp eye for the foibles of human nature with a generous amount of sympathy for her characters. The result is a modern morality tale, skilfully told, about the age-old conflict between love and money.' -- The Times

'This is light, entertaining stuff, but this book is streets ahead of the usual run of romantic comedy . . . Cheek is a genuinely witty writer with the ability to make you laugh out loud.' -- Daily Mail


Lovely home, lovely husband, lovely family: apart from the envy of her less contented sister everything in Dilys's rags-to-riches life is lovely, lovely, lovely. Until the day she meets a man at a railway station who is also - lovely. As she hurtles towards either her destruction or her liberation she discovers that deceit is in the blueprint of our birth, that ancient Aunts have their own dark secrets, that envious sisters have their reasons. And that when Brief Encounters meet Basic Instincts, the right choice, like truth, is rarely pure and never simple.
