There’s a place for the light-hearted and funny read, a beacon in the currently popular sea of serial killers and Nordic Noir. With that in mind, About Last Night will buoy you up and make you giggle. Molly is trapped in the country after her husband dies, leaving her with three children to rear and very little money to do it with. And five years later they appear to be reared, but in no hurry to be of any help. She scrapes a living together by strange and varied ways: selling saucy underwear and being a dodgy horse-dealer, among others. But then she inherits a fortune and has an opportunity to move back to London…only things have gotten complicated and there appears to be more than one admirer to consider in her future.
