Reporter Bertie Mallowan has a knack for finding trouble...or it that trouble has knack for finding her? Whatever, she's still reeling from being laid off from her job when she lands a job as a society columnist at a newspaper owned by multimillionaire Dillard Johnson--known as "The Big Johnson" among his employees. His friend, environmental activist Rowley Poke, is murdered at a party sponsored by Johnson and of course Bertie was one of the guests as part of her new job. The Big J tells Bertie to infiltrate The End, Poke's eco-conservation group, and report back to him. Being dangled before her is a job as an investigative reporter. Bertie must navigate the eccentricities of the Big J, his family, and the new head of The End, Buddy Laird, to solve the mystery. Funny, fast-paced, Snarky Park is another triumph from a writer to watch. PRAISE FOR the Bertie Mallowan series and Cathy Lubenski "What do a certain Mennonite innkeeper, and a reporter named Bertie Mallowan, have in common? Could it be that they are both highly intelligent women with a wry take on life, or could it possibly be that both possess tongues capable of slicing Swiss cheese? This is a surefire recipe for a winner in my book! Trashy Chic is pure gold." -- Tamar Myers, author of the Pennsylvania Dutch Mysteries and The Headhunter’s Daughter “Don’t miss this utterly delightful mystery. Cathy Lubenski has a light but sharp touch, a wonderful eye for human types and human foibles, and she’s a natural entertainer. “Trashy Chic” has a perfect humor-to-heart ratio. Bravo!”--T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of The Jaguar and The Border Lords “Fast and funny. Enjoy!” -- Parnell Hall, author of Caper
"Pooh! Is that you, Bertie?" Bertie likes making smells. When he trumps it makes his mum cross, embarrasses his dad, upsets his gran and offends his sister. But they all have a secret, and Bertie knows it!
This book takes up the story where 'At Least She Never Drank Much' - the first volume of Geraldine's autobiography - left off. Her erratic journey through life continues to intrigue as she walks out of her job and into an enchanted world of witches, weirdos and wannabe poets. Two offbeat characters she meets at an Earth Mysteries Group kick off the changes that Fate has in store for her, and a charismatic stranger she meets on a train takes her on a magical mystery tour through Cumbria's Lakeland, opening up her latent spirituality and leaving her hearing the Voice of God in her head. Like the Cat that Walks by Himself, Geraldine threads her own path through witches' sabbats, predatory preachers, performance poets and passionate romances, coming out at the end of it with The Man Who'll See the Poet - the only man who ever saw her as she was, instead of what he wanted her to be. There is magic and mayhem in this charming book, which has Ms Murfin-Shaw's uniquely individualistic touch.
As always, Bertie is about to find himself in the soup (or 'up to the knees in bisque') and Jeeves is poised to pull him out - quite possibly after pushing him in in the first place. In this omnibus of characteristically hilarious short stories and novels, Jeeves is for the first time shockingly employed to resolve the woes of someone other than Bertie Wooster. Contains The Mating Season, Ring for Jeeves and Very Good, Jeeves...
