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.'

Synopsis

Who's That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane

'The perfect balance of romcom and drama!' GRAZIA She kissed the groom. She's not the bride...Edie thought she'd found The One...until he told her he was marrying someone else. And on the day of his wedding, when he kisses her, life really does go pear-shaped...Labelled as a home-wrecker and office outcast, when her boss offers her the chance to get out of town Edie jumps at it, even though moving back in with her eccentric father and prickly sister isn't exactly the escape she needs. When her work throws her into the path of rising star and heartthrob Elliot, Edie is expecting a highly strung diva. But as their unexpected friendship develops, Elliot isn't the only one in the spotlight...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.
