At fifty, Pippa Lee seems just fine. The devoted wife of a brilliant publisher thirty years her senior, the proud mother of successful twins, and a lovely and adored friend and neighbor, she seems to glow with feminine serenity. But when her husband spontaneously decides they should cast off Gramercy Park for Marigold Village retirement home as a “preemptive strike against his decrepitude,” Pippa finds her beatific persona unraveling in alarming ways: the truth is that the gracious woman of the present day has seen more than her fair share of the wild side. By seventeen, Pippa had lived with a Dexedrine-addicted mother, felt the first stirrings of sexuality with a school girlfriend, had an affair with a teacher, and run away from home, set adrift on a course littered with broken hearts—until she seemingly found love and security in a family of her own. And now that established world, too, is in danger. In Pippa Lee we have an unforgettable heroine, and a quirky and acutely intelligent portrait of the many lives behind a single name. Even after we’ve read it, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee is a story that is still unfurling.
London waitress Pippa Taylor has no interest in horses or country-living. But when she inherits Peace Offering, a hopeless racehorse, she embarks on a career change in order to see her late uncle’s wish to run him in the Grand National come true. * But having talked her way into a job as racing secretary to a champion National Hunt trainer and moved to the West Country, Pippa finds herself faced with more daunting obstacles than even the Grand National can throw at her. * Most take the form of Jack Carmichael, her moody boss. Although easy on the eye, he’s certainly not easy on the ear. And after a Christmas they would both rather forget, danger and deception threaten Pippa’s life in the country. As her time at Aspen Valley Racing Stables draws to its conclusion, she discovers Peace Offering is not the only thing she must fight to keep. ***** ‘My favourite of this author’s books – the romance stayed with me for ages.’ – Amazon reviewer ***** ‘Really fell in love with the characters... look forward to reading more.’ – Amazon reviewer ***** ‘Would definitely recommend for a good holiday read.’ – Amazon reviewer
