Publisher's Summary

Due to financial hardships at Tawcester Towers, the Dowager Duchess has decreed that the only way the family fortunes can be restored is to marry Blotto off...to an American! Reluctantly, Blotto, together with Twinks and his trusty chauffeur Corky Froggett set sail. Awaiting him in Illinois is fabulously wealthy heiress Mary Chapstick, the only daughter of meat-packing magnate Hiram P. Chapstick III. But it's Twinks who discovers early on that all is not as it seems and that Hiram P. Chapstick III is in fact up to his neck in a bootlegging operation run by the notorious Chicago mobster, Spagsy Chiaparelli. Will Blotto and Twinks ever make it back to dear old Blighty?

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story
    "And I do like Simon Brett!"

    I imagine this was written for the US market and a teen audience.

    Not much story. But lots of action

    Silly 'over the top' narration.

    Young folk in those tween years caught between "you are old enough to know better" and "do as you are told" and who can still enjoy grown ups being unaware of how illogical they can be are likely to enjoy this one.

    "I pass on this series..."

    Not for me, I am afraid. This sort of slapstick leaves me cold . Isn't it time for a new Mrs Pargeter?

    "Very amusing!"
    What did you like most about Blotto, Twinks and the Bootlegger's Moll?

    I love the Blotto & Twinks books. Simon Brett is a wonder at wit ! Very enjoyable. Blotto is like Inspector Clouseau, he gets results without even realizing what he's doing!! Love it !!! The whole series is great !


    What about Simon Brett’s performance did you like?

    It's especially good to hear the actual author of the book reading it, makes it seem more 'real'.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Love all the funny lines!


    Any additional comments?

    More, more please !
