A witty tale of modern manners in the style of Mavis Cheek. Dora Hall is in her forties, divorced and under no illusions about her personal appearance. She tells her family that she makes her living by translating books -- but that's not where the money is these days. Dora is secretly a successful writer of erotica. Realising that he's on to a good thing, Dora's agent arranges a promotional tour. Trouble is, Dora just doesn't look the part. So he hires a glamorous substitute to charm the media and woo the fans. Lillian Bliss fulfils all the critera, the walking Barbie doll who laps up the attention and makes it look easy. Then she starts deviating from the script! Chaos descends upon the small Norfolk town, local celebrities and politicians scrabble frantically to hide their seedy pasts, and Dora's cover is completely blown. There's one compensation, though. Back into her life comes an old flame, a policeman assigned to clear up some of Lillian's spectacular mess. What price romance the second time around in the midst of such mayhem?
