At Myrtle House, the twin beds have never been so busy...
The irrepressible Russell 'Buffy' Buffery has upped sticks from London and moved to a decrepit B&B in rural Wales. He needs to fill the beds, and what better way than with 'Courses for Divorces', his new money-making wheeze.
Those checking in include: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who's been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) weedy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle.
Under Buffy's tutelage, these casualties of the marriage-go-round find themselves re-learning all those skills never thought they'd need again, and a whole lot more besides...

Nobody writes as well about the stirrings of elderly loins. This extremely funny novel is set in rural Wales, in the sublime company of Russell ‘Buffy’ Buffery… The joy lies in the delightful characters and the wry, pin-sharp commentary on their shenanigans. Bliss - The Times
Just as exuberant and hilarious as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Good Housekeeping
This is a funny book… Does provide a comforting read with some real laughs thrown in - Daily Telegraph
Another winner from the writer of the novel that became The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Candis
One of our sharpest-eyed chroniclers of the battle of the sexes - Saga
Best Exotic: Delightful and entertaining - Mail on Sunday
Deborah Moggach has the uncanny knack of getting beneath the skin of contemporary life… Moggach’s glorious sense of humour, the ease with which she inhabits her characters and her affections for them are apparent on every page. No wonder this astute and funny exploration of love and longing is being adapted for television - Sunday Express
Just as Moggach’s These Foolish Things was a lot less saccharine than the film they made of it, so Myrtle House is no Marigold Hotel. So both books are informed by their author's witty and bathetic style, and her unflinching eye for human frailty: as someone says, we don’t know if we’re in a Ayckbourn farce or a Strindberg tragedy - Independent on Sunday
Witty, poignant and ideal entertainment for a Sunday afternoon’ - Women's Way
