I Will Marry George Clooney (by Christmas) by Tracy Bloom
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Single mum Michelle was blessed with Josie after a one-night stand. Problem is when Josie becomes a teenager she loses respect for her mum and announces she’s going to sleep with her no-good boyfriend, Shaun, following in mum’s footsteps! One drunken event and the two make a bargain. If Michelle marries George Clooney by Christmas then Josie won’t sleep with Shaun. A mad-cap scheme which evolves into a huge charity drive with Michelle announcing she will give the proceeds to Clooney’s chosen charity. This is really about determination and perseverance, if you want to make things happen then take control of your life. The plot gets nicely complicated with a highly satisfactory resolution. Well written with an easy flow and lots of humour, it’s a lovely read.

If you like Tracy Bloom you might also like to read books by Milly Johnson, Jenny Colgan and Chris Manby.

Synopsis

I Will Marry George Clooney (by Christmas) by Tracy Bloom

This is a brand new very funny Christmas novel, from the bestselling author of No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday and Single Woman Seeks Revenge. There comes a time in every woman's life when the only answer is to marry George Clooney. For Michelle, that time is now. Slogging her guts out in a chicken factory whilst single-handedly bringing up a teenager who hates her is far from the life that 36-year-old Michelle had planned. But marrying the most eligible man on the planet by Christmas could change all that, couldn't it? Sometimes your only option is to dream the impossible - because you never know where it might take you.

About the Author

In 2007 Tracy Bloom was kidnapped by her husband to go and live in America for three years. Living without friends and family and with a brand new baby she decided her only option was to set about making her dream come true (the one where she writes a book and gets it published, not the one where she marries George Clooney!) Her debut romantic comedy novel No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday went on to become a bestseller as well as being translated into over a dozen languages. Back living in England the dream continues as she carries on writing books whilst herding two children and a husband around the Derbyshire countryside.
