Love, Revenge & Buttered Scones – Bobbie Darbyshire
Pre-order now and get your early copy
Three troubled people, driven by loneliness, vanity and revenge, dash to the Scottish Highlands, where their lives become mysteriously entwined around a reading group in the Inverness public library. We’ve all done it—gone after one thing and found entirely another—but never as surprisingly as Henry, Peter & Elena. It’s Friday, 18th February 2000, and they’re in for an unsettling weekend among the book stacks of the library, on the blizzard-bound streets of Inverness, in the recesses of the Loch Craggan Hotel, and on the treacherous mountain above.
A laugh-out-loud treat. A magic mix of comedy and wry observation by a writer who is really on her game.
Ron McMillan, author of Yin Yang Tattoo and Don’t Think Twice
Bobbie Darbyshire captures the art of good storytelling. A book you can’t easily put down. Very entertaining.
