Oh dear, I'm not sure how long I can go on hating Lucy Mangan now I know she loves the Gwen Grant books (even if she says they're set near Sheffield, whereas I'm pretty sure they were set near Nottingham). I too used to read bits of them aloud to my mother (my sisters had all read the books themselves), and there are bits that still, after all these years, make me laugh just thinking about them. One of my favourites was when the nameless heroine's mother says that "Our Rose is a very nice girl" and the heroine looks at her and thinks "you can tell she's a Mam thinking our Rose is a nice girl". I don't know why I find that so funny, but I do.
