Pearls, Girls And Monty Bodkin - P.G. Wodehouse Pearls, Girls and Monty Bodkin picks up one year after the events of Luck of the Bodkins. Monty finishes his year at Llewellyn studios, oblivious to the fact that his secretary is in love with him, only to find out that J.D. Butterwick says his year of employment doesn't count adn he'll have to work another year to earn the lady Butterwick's hand. Fortunately, Sandy, his secretary, follows him to England while working for Llewellyn's wife Grayce and gets Monty hired on as a secretary.

Throw in a string of pearls, husband and wife con artists, and one dodgy English detective and there you have it. Not my favorite Wodehouse by any means but still worth a read. How can you not enjoy a story with a character named Oily Carmichael in it?
