I’m over the moon to be included on the blog tour for this fabulous book from Mhairi McFarlane
Who’s That Girl
When Edie is caught in a compromising position at her colleagues’ wedding, all the blame falls on her – turns out that personal popularity in the office is not that different from your schooldays. Shamed online and ostracised by everyone she knows, Edie’s forced to take an extended sabbatical – ghostwriting an autobiography for hot new acting talent, Elliot Owen. Easy, right?
Wrong. Banished back to her home town of Nottingham, Edie is not only dealing with a man who probably hasn’t heard the word ‘no’ in a decade, but also suffering an excruciating regression to her teenage years as she moves back in with her widowed father and judgy, layabout sister.
When the world is asking who you are, it’s hard not to question yourself. Who’s that girl? Edie is ready to find out.
A few minutes into reading this book, I was laughing hysterically. And those first few pages set the tone for the rest of the story. This is one of those books that you just can’t put down – it’s impossible. It should come with a sticker on it: WARNING: you will fall off your chair laughing. A piece of advice from me, if you are sitting on a chair, place cushions around yourself, that way if you do fall off, the book will have a soft landing (might prevent yourself a bit of a bump too)!
Edie is at her colleagues’ wedding and something Edie didn’t expect when she steps out for a breather after watching the bridesmaid murder a famous Julie Andrews song in her very own rendition, is being kissed by the groom. And something she expected even less, is the bride finding them in such a compromising position. Harassed and embarrassed, Edie is shamed into quitting her job. But her boss comes up with a solution and offers her a sabbatical away from the nasty comments and bullying antics of her colleagues and into the world of famous actor Elliot Owen. Tasked with the job of ghost-writing his autobiography, Edie is confronted with arrogance and rudeness from Elliot. But on their little journey together, they both realise that there is more to one another than meets the eye …
This isn’t your typical will-they-won’t-they. It is so much more.
Mahairi’s brilliant way with words and incredible talent for seeing the hilarity in situations draws us in and claims full charge over our funny bone. What a fabulous read. I can’t recommend it enough … one more piece of advice though, don’t read in public, you’ll get a few funny looks when you start laughing out of nowhere.
Funny. Heart-warming. Funny – again.
