Publisher's Summary

London has changed a lot over the years. The Soho that Precious and Tabitha live and work in is barely recognisable anymore. And now, the building they call their home is under threat; its billionaire-owner Agatha wants to kick the women out to build expensive restaurants and luxury flats. Men like Robert, who visit the brothel, will have to go elsewhere. 

The collection of vagabonds and strays in the basement will have to find somewhere else to live. But the women are not going to go quietly. They have plans to make things difficult for Agatha but she isn't taking no for an answer. 

Hot Stew is an insightful and ambitious novel about property, ownership, wealth and inheritance. It is about the place we occupy in society, especially women, and the importance placed on class and money. It doesn't shy away from asking difficult questions but does so with humour and intelligence.

Couldn't turn it off!

Such an elegant story with so much depth and "en courrant "

It's going to be a favourite read for sure!

The Audible reader has great versatility although I noted a few vocal errors

A huge yawn

This is without exception the most tedious book I have ever tried to listen to. Nothing happens, at least for the time I persevered. I could find nothing to engage me with the characters, some of whom should have been entertaining in the hands of a better writer. The setting should have occasioned equally entertaining situations and happenings but the narrative portrayed everything at a dreary, monotonous level.
The narrator could not do anything to enliven such an abysmal script but how on earth could she not know how to pronounce such ordinary words as 'sow' (female pig) , zucchini, fecund, facsimile, Samuel Pepys. She did, however, do a good job at different accents.
I so wish I could have a refund on this one but Amazon said "No"

Excellent story

Vast range of characters all interlinked - thoroughly enjoyable story well read. Must search the author out.
