Picking Up Summary


Picking Up by Kate Fenton

The sparkling novel about the funny side of life in Yorkshire, from the author of TOO MANY GODMOTHERS.

If it hadn't been for the dog, Jo Patterson would never have overheard that bizarre snatch of conversation on the grouse moor. A year ago Jo didn't know a grouse from a Rhode Island Rooster. Now she's up to her eyebrows in mud because a day's labour on the shoot will earn her a precious GBP20 and an even more precious few hours of contact with humanity.

If she hadn't gone on the shoot she wouldn't have remembered that conversation about security consultants when she discovers that her soon-to-be-ex-husband may have sold their business for much less than it's worth. And if she hadn't remembered the conversation she would never have kicked over the ant's nest of trouble . . .

This is great fun. It zips along with verve and energy - there isn't a dull page in it . . . The characters are wonderful too, from bossy, tactless, endearing Teddy, her long suffering neighbour to the mother from from hell. If you want a tonic, try this * amazon reader on Too Many Godmothers *
