Amanda's Wedding by Jenny Colgan
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Jenny Colgan’s glorious first novel gets a re-issue and it’s just as delightful and funny as it was 15 years ago (and slightly alarming to read and realise at how little beyond smart phones and twitter has really changed in our lives). Amanda is a somewhat clichéd vile PR girl and Mel her secret nemesis. Queue much silly hilarity as Mel and their friend Fran try to get Amanda’s claws out of her wealthy intended whilst attempting to avoid a host of embarrassing pitfalls along the way. Fabulous frothy fun.

If you like Jenny Colgan you might also like to read books by Jill Mansell, Katie Fforde and Sue Watson.

Synopsis

Amanda's Wedding by Jenny Colgan

A deliciously warm novel from the best-selling author of Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe and The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris. Amanda's old schoolfriends can't believe it when the social-climbing queen of preen, Satan's very own PR girl, pulls off the ultimate publicity stunt in getting herself engaged to a Scottish laird. Who cares that Fraser McConnald has worn the same pair of Converse trainers for the last three years and that his castle is a pile of rubble with one calor gas heater - she'll be titled! Something Must Be Done. Gentle, decent Fraser is clearly ignorant of her wiles, and Mel and Fran, still smarting from the memory of all the mean things Amanda put them through in their days at Portmount Comprehensive, set out to sabotage this mismatch of the century. So between fighting off the attentions of a love-crazed accountant, keeping Fran's deadly manoeuvres with the opposite sex under control and trying to win her own war of love with the elusive but gorgeous Alex, Mel finds herself attending a wild Scottish stag night, a hen night from hell, and preparing for a wedding that's everything you'd wish on your worst enemy.
