Review:

Praise for Last Dance with Valentino 'a gripping, bittersweet love story' SUNDAY TIMES 'written in deft, engrossing prose, this story is dizzy with glamour and heartbreak.' EASY LIVING 'impeccably researched and beautifully-written' DAILY MAIL 'Waugh weaves fact with fiction into a novel with glamour, tragedy and romance' CHOICE 'It's intelligent, inventive and deliciously entertaining' SAGA Praise for Daisy Waugh: 'Sparkling fun.' HEAT 'Full of laugh-out-loud funny bits.' NEW WOMAN 'Possessed of her late father, Auberons' dry wit, and grandfather Evelyn's light comic touch, Daisy Waugh's refreshing tale of a glamorous urbanite's struggle to come to terms with life running a crumbling country-house hotel is a joy. Especially the stabs at egocentric celebrity types.' CHOICE 'A surprisingly witty, romantic read.' COMPANY 'Waugh's take on media life is spot on, as are her descriptions of the more irritating aspects of country life.' MARIE CLAIRE
