100 Ways to Fight the Flab and Still Have Wine and Chocolate by Jane Wenham-Jones
The PAâ€™s agency has a James Bond style approach to helping women be unfaithful with full contingency plans in place in case anything goes wrong while playing away. The perfect cover for all women who want to be unfaithful. Stephanie is fed up in her marriage and has gone right off sex and then her old boyfriend Troy turns up and suddenly her libido is on the up. Should she take advantage of the PAâ€™s agencies services? Funny, sad and thoroughly ridiculous (in a good way) this is a fun read.
A fun, relaxing read with characters we can all identify with. Take Three Girls with a modern slant - single mother, modern business woman and glamorous, wealthy girl about town; all with issues bubbling under the surface. Well written and pacy with a surprising twist or three! Light hearted but with enough suspense to hold the interest of the most discerning reader. Relax and enjoy, preferably on a sun lounger with the sea lapping at your feet.

Katie Fforde When her daughter, Ellie, brings home a new boyfriend, Clare can't put her finger on why she feels troubled by it. Is it because he's attractive and closer to her in age?

She's much younger than her husband and definitely isn't ready for crosswords and comfy slippers. When a new colleague starts to show an interest in her, it ignites a spark of attraction that feels impossible to ignore.
