A great idea. The three unlikely women escaping from their very different lives to be thrown together first by the necessity of working in a Hotel in Cornwall. Then secondly by the plot to steal an old book and (with a little updating) to present it to the world as their own work. Unfortunately the bizarre circumstances and the characters themselves did not come across as believable enough to do justice to the basic idea. A good read for holiday fare.
