    1. An excellent romp through the complicated life of an ex model. Light hearted comedy reading I would be happy to recommend.

    2. Quintessential Farce, 13 Sep 2013 I am not a fan of high farce. It embarrasses me. Those plays like "One Man, Two Guvnors", films like "Mr Bean" and "Mama Mia", sitcoms like "Miranda" and "Big Bang Theory", all dreadful. Forced fun reminiscent of Aunty Susan, who's husband left her for an older man, shrieking riotously at that balloon passing game but ultimately crying into her gin when alone.But I do love words.

Anyone who enjoys women's fiction will get a kick out of this novel, which, though funny on the surface, has a deeper undertone just below. Touches upon such themes as middle age, the desire to go back to what we once were, and taking a look at where we've unexpectedly ended up. Well [...]

    5. *I recieved a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*Review also seen at beentherereadthatreviewedtheboIf you can read the synopsis of Trouble At Toff Towers without raising a smile, I’d suggest this book isn’t for you. Personally, I loved all the fun names (and all the connotations that came with them!) and the ridiculously dramatic events which have happened in Louisa’s life.The book is written in the form of a diary (Louisa’s), which isn’t normally something I like to re [...]
