An Old Fashioned Arrangement
Set in Geneva, this is a rich and gripping story of love and relationships, nicely seasonsed with a touch of suspense. Kim is suddenly adrift in an expensive foreign city with a child to support. She's been trailing dutifully around the world with her unreliable husband Richard, ex-army officer turned international businessman, but early one morning he is reported killed in a plane crash in the Indonesian jungle. His shady employers insist she must leave the company-rented house within a month and, with no home in England, she finds herself destitute. Then wicked old Henri makes a practical proposition - what would you do if you were Kim? How would you cope with the extraordinary dilemmas she faces?

"Henri smiled mischievously. 'Of course one admires a serious woman but so much good responsible behaviour must be rather depressing.' 'a hugely entertaining book by a gifted storyteller with exceptional perception. An absolute must!" Carousel Magazine 'I love it, the writing is fresh, the characters believable and interesting.' Eileen Ramsay 'Culture shock, romance, character studies, humour - it's all here in this novel.' Courier magazine"
