April 2016 Book of the Month.

One kiss and your world falls apart, and you didn’t even instigate it! So this is Edie’s problem and the start of a light, highly infectious, delightful read from Mhairi McFarlane. Online persecution and abuse is beautifully handled and then Edie goes home to Dad and layabout sister to ghost an autobiography of a hot new film star. Naturally love blossoms but so does a fist full of problems as the media pounces. Edie has to cope with facing her own past and building a future. Great fun. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

  • Hayley Rutland - 'The writing in this book crackles with wit and warmth and the characters are so well-developed and realistic I can still picture them now.'
  • Suze Verbruggen - 'I often had a smile on my face while I was reading this book... I highly recommend this book, especially to people who are looking for a relaxing read.'
  • Edel Waugh - 'This was such a fun read...If you enjoy an uplifting read this is the book for you.'
  • Suzanne Marsh - 'Who's That Girl by Mhairi McFarlane is one hundred percent a brilliant story and so funny. With all the stress in our lives it is a joy to read a humorous novel with a brilliant plot.'
  • Sarah Harper - 'With funny, insightful and moving moments and a sassy, confident and intelligent heroine, this will make a good summer read.'
  • Nicola Southwell - 'I would recommend this as a good light-hearted view of the problems arising from doing something that is unacceptable, and how to put it behind you. Well written.'
  • Janet Gilliard - 'I have read all of Mhairi McFarlane s books and she gets better every time.'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'Good coming-of-age story albeit at 35, even Edie herself is surprised it has taken so long.  But at +500 pages, I found my interest waived.'
  • Caroline Mathews - 'A funny, sad, entertaining and really enjoyable read - another winner from this fabulous author.'
  • Gill Williams - 'Perhaps a little bit too long and a little bit too much breast beating on Edie's part but on the whole a well written, enjoyable light summer read.'
  • Laura Lovelock - 'Mhairi is back with a hell of a bang. There’s women’s fiction and then there’s Mhairi. She stands head and shoulders above most with her witty, convincing and smart novels.'
  • Megan Abbott - 'Overall, this has been one of the best rom-com books that I have read in a long time and would definitely recommend.'

A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Who's That Girl by Mhairi McFarlane

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.

About the Author

Mhairi McFarlane

Mhairi McFarlane was born in Scotland in 1976 and has been explaining how to pronounce her name ever since. (With a 'V', not an 'M'. Yes, that's us crazy Celts for you). She is based in Nottingham where she used to be a local journalist and now she's a freelance writer and sometime-blogger, which we all know is code for messing about on Twitter. Her first book, You Had Me At Hello, was an instant success. She has now written four books. She lives with a man and a cat.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
