Maddy is desperate to escape dreary English seaside-town, Mudley... ...With a forced smile, she helps her widowed dad in his World-War-Two themed cafe. She likes the elderly, eccentric clients but longs for the bright lights, big city... And a hunky man, slim of waist, fat of wallet. When her dad weds a busty barmaid, Maddy catches a fast train to London. Will the streets be paved with handsome, rich bachelors? Or are Maddy's dreams as airy as candy floss? Whatever happens, she can't go back to Mudley. ***** A fast-paced 1980s rom-com novelette Please kindly note -- this book was initially titled I Can't Go Back to Maplethorpe.
