The Little Lady Agency

Hester Browne has come up with a funny, clever character in Melissa Romney-Jones, the owner of The Little Lady Agency. After being fired, yet again, she first tries being an "escort" for an agency owned by her former teacher, a proper, very classy lady, but after finding out the true nature of the work, she decides to start her own service for men who need a mother, a sister, a date and even a fake girlfriend. She has great success, and meets a man, transferred from the US, who needs help navigating the deep social pool of London society. Dealing with her flaky sisters wedding, as well as her simply awful Father only adds to the chaos in her life. It is a fun read, quick and perhaps a little predictable, but I enjoyed it as a light read. She has two more Little Lady books and I think I will check them out as well.

I just started "T is for Trespass" by Sue Grafton, one of my favorite writers, and so far, I am really happy to be back in Kinsey Millhones world. I guess I have fallen off the "No Book" diet I had set up for myself. So many books.....
