A Surrey State of Affairs
By Ceri Radford
OK, I’ll admit I don’t know much about the British and how they live but when this book arrived, I read through the first few pages and started laughing out loud at the completely loveable Constance Harding. She’s this 50-something mother who starts blogging about her life – how she can’t understand why her housekeeper is so messy that she can’t even keep her underwear from drying in her husband’s office. And how she deserves to live life to its fullest by relaxing with a magazine and a cup of tea. Ooh la la. And author Ceri Radford writes this so sincerely, that you actually feel sorry for the cluelessly, adorably daft woman. Wait, did I just use the word daft? I have to go look it up!
Anyway, Constance goes about her pretty plush life clueless to the shenanigans going on around her as her family is falling apart right before her eyes. She’ll finally take the bull by the horn and do something for herself! Here’s the blurb for A Surrey State of Affairs:
Constance Harding's comfortable corner of Surrey is her own little piece of heaven. She lives in a chocolate box house complete with an Aga and a parrot, her bell-ringing club is set to dominate the intercounty tournament, and she is sure she can get her son, Rupert, to settle down if she just writes the perfect personal ad for him. Naturally, things turn disastrous rather quickly. And she's about to learn that her perfect home conceals a scandal that would make the vicar blush.
Her Lithuanian housekeeper's undergarments keep appearing in her husband's study and her daughter is turning into a Lycra-clad gap-year strumpet. As her family falls apart, Constance embarks on an extraordinary journey. From partying in Ibiza to riding bareback with a handsome Argentinean gaucho whose only English words are "Britney" and "Spears," Constance is about to discover a wider world she thought it was too late to find.
Read a hilarious excerpt here.
To enter to win A Surrey State of Affairs, since Constance is pretty clueless about many things happening right under her nose, share something that you are clueless about. Me – totally clueless when it comes to directions. In fact, my husband wants to kill me most times. I got lost going to a high school for a basketball game on Friday that I HAD BEEN TO BEFORE. It drives him CRAZY! I’m telling you, something is missing from my brain that tells a person how to figure out directions. So, what are you clueless about. Oh, also math. I am clueless about math. Oh, and applying makeup … I guess I could start a major list here…
