Unwanted visitors come in all shapes and sizes, from three selfish brothers to a crusader from the past. Mimi Mountjoy's life is suddenly filled with problems. Her business as a purveyor of fountains is threatened and her husband Edmund, who desperately needs to finish his book on the Templars, is afflicted with writer's block. Then Mimi's mother decamps abroad to escape her three unmarried sons - who promptly descend on their sister in Eyot, with extremely disruptive results.
Infuriated by the brothers, Mimi and Edmund flee to France. But hot on their heels come an attractive woman from Edmund's past, the tenacious brothers and a ghostly presence with its own singular perspective on Edmund's book. Will Mimi conquer her mistrust of Edmund - and can she deal for once and for all with her trio of impossible brothers? Scandals, schemes and suspicions sparkle in this witty comedy of love and laughter. Escape into another world and delight in the lives of a host of fascinating characters. This is the England of Wodehouse and Downton Abbey, where wickedness and scandal lurk beneath the superb self-confidence of the upper classes.
Best seller Elizabeth Aston's six Mountjoy novels were originally written under the name Elizabeth Pewsey and published by Sceptre, an imprint of Hodder Headline.
