When you, the close relation of an earl, find yourself reeling from a major scandal, anonymity is not an option.
Perhaps—just perhaps—your new servant and your membership in an elite London social club will allow you to weather the storm unscathed. It seems most unlikely, however.
Will you lean into your shocking reputation, fight hard to redeem yourself in the eyes of the fickle public, or just relax with a cocktail by the fire? What is most important to you: your own comfort, loyalty to your friends, or the expectations of your family? Navigate the joys and troubles of membership in your new club: planning parties, gaining new members, taking down rivals—or winning them over as friends. Find love with a dreamy artist; a former neighbor with a taste for rebellion, a dashing clubmate with a flair for the dramatic (and for golden trousers)—or even your own servant! And, of course, spend time with some old friends from Tally Ho.
Can you manage it all before it comes crashing down? Surely your new servant ought to be able to solve these knotty problems with both elegance and unruffled grace.*
A standalone sequel to
Cakes and Ale

With the tireless aid of your clever servant, your rollicking social club, and your merry new friends, all shall surely be well! Make a splash as you find your way through a P.G. Wodehouse-inspired world of pranks, debts, close shaves, passion, rivalries, and untold heights of glory and absurdity amongst the cream of society.
