Introducing two eccentric ladies who form an unlikely friendship.Meet Mavis and Dot - two colourful, retired ladies who live in Worthington-on-Sea, where there are charity shops galore. Apart from bargain hunting, they manage to tangle themselves in escapades involving illegal immigrants, night clubs, nude modelling, errant toupees and more. And then there’s Mal, the lovable dog who nobody else wants. A gently humorous, often side-splitting, heart-warming snapshot of two memorable characters with past secrets and passions. Escape for a couple of hours into this snapshot of a faded, British seaside town. You'll laugh and cry but probably laugh more."This book is quirky and individual, and has great pathos...[it] will resonate with a lot of readers." Gill Kaye - Editor of Ingenu(e). Written with a light touch in memory of a dear friend who passed away from ovarian cancer, Angela Petch’s seaside tale is a departure from her successful Tuscan novels. All profits from the sale of the books will go towards research into the cure for cancer.

What an amusing and charming pair of ladies are at the centre of this book. 

They may be older ladies but they certainly haven't lost their zest for life. 

Initially meeting at bridge they seem to be compete opposites but as you get up know them you understand why Dot can appear to be prickly.  

There are a lot of antics in this story that are sure to raise a smile order a giggle.

The setting of Worthington on Sea is a traditional British seaside town and feels like a location I can recall as a child.  

Everything just felt rather quaint and the book covers all sorts of topics. In addition profits from the book are going towards research into cancer. 

With a humorous story, a hint there could be more to come from Mavis and Dot, and all for a good cause it's definitely a book worth having a read of. 

Thank you to Angela Petch for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
