Publisher's Summary

Poppy Carew, smarting and in shock because her live-in lover has left her for a richer woman, is called to the bedside of her dying father, a wonderful, loveable eccentric who dies laughing. He asks as his last request that he be buried in style by an undertaker who specialises in fun funerals. He also astonishes Poppy by leaving her a large sum of money.

As news of her good fortune spreads, other friends of friends, acquaintances of her dead father (who appears to have made his fortune by being nice to old ladies) and, not least, her ex-lover emerge. Suddenly there are too many choices for Poppy Carew.
