My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fur Coat & No Knickers is a collection of short stories and poems.

The book is made up of twelve short stories and sixteen poems; tales and adventures from a wide selection of everyday lives of people, families and friends. It is often said that other people’s complex relationships make your own problems fade away, so this is a good book to escape into even for a short time.

I enjoyed the stories, some of my favourites were; Fur coat and No knickers, A seed of Doubt and A visit at Christmas. From the poems I especially enjoyed A Pink Day.

Another good example of story telling from this popular author.

Book Description

A mixture of thrilling, gripping and heart-warming short stories for a cosy fireside read anytime, anyplace. Fur Coat & No Knickers will introduce you to an impoverished heiress desperate to keep up appearances; a bitter and broken-hearted widow whose wilful terrier leads her to romance; an ageing theatrical masquerading as a highly-paid carer and a woman whose husband has maintained a secret family throughout their married life! These are just some of the fascinating and unforgettable characters in this fabulous new collection by award-winning author Adrienne Vaughan.

About the author

Adrienne Vaughan

Adrienne Vaughan has been making up stories since she could speak; primarily to entertain her sister Reta, who from a very early age never allowed a plot or character to be repeated – tough audience. As soon as she could pick up a pen, she started writing them down. It was no surprise she wanted to be a journalist; ideally the editor of a glossy music and fashion magazine, so she could meet and marry a pop star – some of that came true – and in common with so many, still holds the burning ambition to be a ‘Bond Girl’! She now runs a busy PR practice and writes poems, short stories and ideas for books, in her spare time. She is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and a founder member of the indie publishing group The New Romantics4. Adrienne lives in Leicestershire with her husband, two cocker spaniels and a retired dressage horse called Marco.

  1. Huge and grateful thanks Rosie for shining a spotlight on my little collection – delighted you enjoyed it! I’ve had great feedback, and been asked to turn two of the stories into plays … what an exciting challenge!

  2. Thanks to Rosie and her team for this great review of Adrienne’s collection of short stories and poems. There’s a great cover designed by Adrienne’s sister, too. I wish I was able to write short stories, it’s a real skill. Every time I have a go my short story reads like the opening chapter of a novel !!

    • Thanks for stopping by Lizzie … it is indeed very hard to prevent a short story reading like the beginning of a novel, and there are a couple in the collection which I will definitely revisit in longer form, well, that’s what the characters keep telling me! X


  3. So enjoyed reading you on Rosie’s blog today Adrienne. Written in true Irish style with a dash of humour. It’s on my list to read. I’ve moved it up on my list.

  4. Great review Rosie. I enjoyed the stories and poems too. My favourite poem was She never stops at traffic lights which made me smile. If I had to choose favourites I would say Fur Coat & No Knickers too but also The Lemon Bag. But I liked them all, in fact, it would be interesting to know more about some of the characters and what happened next.

    I was also delighted to be asked by Adrienne to design and typeset the interior for her which I really enjoyed doing. Only trouble was, I kept stopping to read the stories!

  5. I absolutely loved this collection and what an original idea to have a poem before each highly original story. What a fabulously talented family you have, Adrienne, the cover’s gorgeous. If anyone hasn’t read this yet, you’re missing a real treat. Great review, Rosie, and good to see the book featured here.
