Not a bad read.

From the Fantastic Fiction website:

"Barbara Ewing was born and brought up in New Zealand. Her lovely face is well-known to theatre fans as well as followers of the TV spoof soap ' Brass'. She recently appeared as Mrs. Hardcastle in the bristol Old Vic's production of SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER, her performance hailed as a 'cross between Brigitte Bardot and Beryl Reid'.

Unable to find stage work, actresses Cordelia Preston and Rillie Spoons need to find a way of making a living. Cordelia remembers the skills of her aunt and sets out to be a phreno-mesmerist, advising couples on their compatability and enlightening women on 'The Gentle Intricacies of the Wedding Night'. Cordelia finds that she does indeed possess the gift for mesmerism, and as her popularity grows, she and Rillie are finally living their dream. But events from Cordelia's past return to haunt her, and the women become embroiled in a scandal that threatens to ruin not only them but those they love ... "

A reasonable read. I liked it better at the start and middle, rather than the end.
