Bed of Roses by Daisy Waugh

A fun, feelgood romp of country life from bestselling author Daisy Waugh

When the restless, rootless Fanny Flynn lands the job as Head Teacher of Fiddleford Village Primary School it feels more like a last resort than another of her new beginnings.

She's a great teacher and all the villagers claim to be behind her. But are they really? In no time she's locked in a feud with the gruesome Mrs Guppy, stalked by the pushy newcomers from the Old Rectory, plotted against by Kitty, the predatory children's author at Laurel Cottage, and demonised by her pathologically lazy Deputy Head...

Yet Fanny has fallen in love with Fiddleford. Together with her troublesomely handsome best friend, Louis, and with a little help from the deliciously scented Solomon Creasey, Fanny vows to make this new beginning her last...

Bed of Roses Reviews


`A heady mix of sex and satire, Daisy Waugh's brilliant book is an utterly compulsive read.' Reveal

`A sharp eye for detail and a refreshingly black comic streak - Cold Comfort Farm meets Goodbye Mr Chips?' Literary Review

`A witty tale` Woman's Own

PRAISE FOR DAISY WAUGH:

`Sparkling fun.' HEAT

`Full of laugh-out-loud funny bits.' NEW WOMAN

`Possessed of her late father, Auberon's dry wit, and grandfather Evelyn's light comic touch, Daisy Waugh's refreshing tale of a glamorous urbanite's struggle to come to terms with life running a crumbling country-house hotel is a joy. Especially the stabs at egocentric celebrity types.' CHOICE

`A surprisingly witty, romantic read.' COMPANY

`A hilarious, witty comedy of modern manners.' Adele Parks

`A beguiling and very funny novel... a real joy to read.' Publishing News
