Summary

The bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel “marries comedy and canniness into a novel that’s warm, tolerant, shrewd and exuberant” (The Sunday Times). The demise of Russell Buffery’s latest marriage has put the sixty-one-year-old actor in a reflective mood. After all, his three ex-wives—the journalist, the new-age housewife, the antique dealer—have easily found their way without “Buffy”, and his connections to his children are tenuous at best. Spurned and alone, he still wonders where it all went wrong. Until he meets Celeste . . . Only twenty-three and new to London, the fresh-faced young woman has given Buffy, the hopeless romantic, a new lease on life. But, unknown to Buffy, Celeste has her own agenda. She begins to delve into his past, but discovering each ex-wife leads to another one—not to mention the women on the side. And though Celeste may be in over her head, what is revealed to her will transform her life—and give both her and Buffy a chance to get it right this time around.Praise for Deborah Moggach “Deborah Moggach is brilliant at capturing just the right voice for her characters.” —Cosmopolitan “You’ll be hooked from the first page of this original, funny book . . .

    The Chicago PI is out to find a Russian defector with dangerous Soviet secrets in this hardboiled mystery from the author of Death Wore Gloves.   When business gets too hot in the Windy City, private detective Lacey Lockington hangs out his shingle in refreshingly boring Youngstown, Ohio. Of course, it’s not all boring thanks to Natasha, the former KGB agent who saved his life, stole his heart, and currently shares his bed. But their brief idyll ends when Lacey is offered big bucks to find a man who may well be hiding out in Youngstown.   Alexi Fedorovich was one of Russia’s greatest military minds before he defected to the States—and then disappeared entirely. Before going underground, he published a book exposing the end of the Cold War as a Russian hoax. Now Lacey’s out to find a man who doesn’t want to be found, up against Russian spies, federal agents, and leads that keep dying on him. With a little help from Natasha, he might just get to the bottom of it all before Fedorovich finds himself on the wrong end of a firing squad.   “Ross is wild, shrewd, mad, and unexpectedly funny.” —The New York Times
