Publisher's Summary

Monty Bodkin has returned to London from Hollywood, leaving Sandy Miller, his secretary there, heartbroken, because Monty loves English hockey international Gertrude Butterwick instead of her.

Holding down a job for a year was the condition laid down by Gertrude's father before Monty and Gertrude could be married, a condition Monty has unexpectedly fulfilled by blackmailing Hollywood movie mogul Ivor Llewellyn. Back in England, he intends to claim his bride, but the path to true love never runs smooth, as Monty is about to find out.

    "Really enjoying Wodehouse!"

    Luck of the Bodkins reeled me in with the opening description of Monty about to embark on speaking French and these are no disappointment.

    The performance fits brilliantly and really brings the story to life!

    "Final outing for. Monty as funny as ever"

    Our hapless hero continues to cause laughs as only a Wodehouse character can - just don't listen when driving - you get strange looks in traffic jams as you're wiping the tears of joy from your face

    "Not terrible, but nothing to write home about"

    Featuring the cast of characters introduced in 'The Luck of the Bodkins' (also available here), 'Pearls, Girls...' sees Monty Bodkin still pursuing Gertrude Butterwick, self-made men still clashing with trust fund babies, and men's lives being run by battle-axe wives.

    There are a few good lines, and the narration is as usual very good, but overall there's nothing here that isn't done better in the Jeeves or Blandings series.
