 boomtownbyvitatugwell2Petticoat Katie & Sledgehammer Girl Novel:  Book #2

Boom Town by Vita TugwellPetticoat Katie has just about got the hang of keeping eighty-eight monkeys fed, watered and typing trashy novelettes in Piccadilly. Business is – about as good as you might expect, to be honest. Then her on-off paramour disappears from the Cabinet of Curiosities leaving a cryptic telegram and a frustrating gap in her affections.

What she needs is a distraction.

And that’s where the People’s Petticoat comes in. Soon she’s mixing with occultists in Pimlico and Suffragettes in Mayfair while her housemates go head-to-head in a competition to invent the folding bicycle without, hopefully, blowing up the neighbourhood.

Petticoat Katie & Sledgehammer Girl return for a second hilarious helping of mayhem and peppermints in a non-stop caper bursting with outrageous characters, unlikely inventions and a surprising number of exploding lawns.
