'Katie Fforde hits the mark honestly and entertainingly.' - HILARY NORMAN The advertisement seeking cleaners promises wonderful wages, and three women all desperately need the money: May has debts hanging over her beloved narrowboat, Harriet has to earn enough to make a home for her illegitimate son, and actress Sally has just failed at yet another audition. It's not long, however, before they realize they weren't taken on for their cleaning ability but for their gullibility, and not even rubber gloves will protect them from the hot water into which they have tumbled...

From AudioFile:

May, Harriet and Sally are modern British women brought together by their need to earn money quickly. Their friendship helps them through difficulties with their sleazy employer, money and men, as each attempts to define her future and true desires. Reader Eve Matheson distinguishes each woman and the men in their lives; her flexible voice and theatrical training serve her well. By using a variety of British accents and speech patterns, she also succeeds in clearly sketching secondary characters. Matheson's ability to offer a full range of emotions for each person makes this especially enjoyable. Though predictable, the story is humorous and candid and full of likable characters. J.H.B.

From Kirkus Reviews:

With a light touch and a simple style, British writer Fforde offers a slight but spirited first novel of three English roses who blossom when they strike out on their own--and finally meet the right men. Housecleaning becomes a path to romance in modern London as the lives and futures of three floundering but well-bred young Englishwomen intersect at a sham cleaning agency. Sally Bliss, a beauty and would-be actress, is trapped in a lose-lose relationship with a snooty, demanding journalist named Piers. Harriet Devonshire, an artist by nature and the mother of ten-year-old illegitimate Matthew, ran away from her controlling great- grandparents when they sent Matthew to boarding school and consequently forbade Harriet to have any contact with him. Spunky, determined, independent May Sargent is living aboard The Rose Revived, a former boyfriend's canal boat, but now she's out of money and too proud to borrow from her family. If she can't pay the harbor master soon, she'll lose the only thing she has: her home. All three women show up at ``Slimeball'' Slater's office in response to an advertisement for cleaners; all three are hired on the spot and sign contracts without reading them--a foolish move that leaves them, literally, in the same boat when they realize that Slater's up to no good. Once the women set out on their initial assignments, though, it's not just trouble they're in for- -genuine friendship is only the first of many benefits to come. With the help of Hugh Buckfast, an attorney May meets at a dinner party she's forced to cater, Quality Cleaners leads to Cleaning Undertaken, a self-conceived, self-run enterprise; for Sally, Harriet, and especially May, running a business leads to self- sufficiency, well-lit career paths, and lasting love. No complex twists or turns, no surprises, just good, clean (emphasis on the latter), old-fashioned fun. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Descrizione libro Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Love is in the air. This is a wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match. If May, Sally and Harriet didn t need the money so badly, they definitely wouldn t be working for Slimeball Slater at Quality Cleaners. So when they discover it s Slimeball taking them to the cleaners, they decide to set up their own business - and that s when things really start to take off. Working for themselves gives them the freedom and independence they ve been longing for. May can afford the mooring fees for her beloved narrowboat; Harriet discovers a true gift for painting and Sally s dream of a place of her own is fast becoming reality. But is it too much, having made such a success of their working lives, to expect similar success in their romantic ones?. Codice libro della libreria AAZ9780099446668
