Publisher Description

Simmering tensions, buried memories and old scores are revived at Wychbourne Court when Lady Ansley's old theatre group reunite to perform the Wychbourne Follies.

1926, Kent. Lady Ansley's old Gaiety Theatre group are reuniting at Wychbourne Court for the weekend. But how will they react when they learn that, thanks to her son Richard, the Follies, which began as a jolly idea for their own amusement, has become a fully-fledged performance to be held in the village at the Coach and Horses Inn?

Chef Nell Drury is sure her guests' reaction isn't the only thing worrying Lady Ansley. A fascinating group of actors and actresses - from the pompous Hubert Jarrett to the dashing Neville Heydock, it's not long before simmering tensions, revived old scores, fears and, worst of all, buried memories take centre stage. What happened to Mary Ann Darling, the young Gaiety actress who disappeared thirty years ago? As the performance draws to a close, the real drama is only just beginning.

Review

Myers has discovered a no-fail recipe for suspense as she dishes up another delectable cuisine-centric caper Booklist Plenty of period detail and shoals of red herrings keep the story moving as the clever heroine seeks answers and a better relationship with the handsome inspector Kirkus Reviews Buoyantly amusing . Myers balances the fun with acute observations on the aftereffects of WWI. Historical fans will be pleased Publishers Weekly
