Shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Comedy of the Year 2011.
A wonderfully funny, fresh debut. Katy Carter is a lovable character suffering the ups and downs of relationship drama and making some interesting discoveries along the way. You will be routing for her all the way as she realises perhaps the life she thought she wanted isn't quite so perfect after all. A great romantic read, thoroughly absorbing and fun.
Katy Carter knows she's no domestic goddess: she's scatterbrained, she needs a fire extinguisher at the ready when she's cooking, and she daily falls off the diet wagon. But that doesn't stop her fantasising about a hero to call her own. And Katy thinks she's found him in fiance James, a charming, high-flying city banker. So why, then, does Katy find herself scribbling steamy historical romances every spare moment she gets, and daydreaming about becoming a published author when she ought to be paying attention in staff meetings? As her wedding day looms, Katy determines to become a wife James can be proud of, and employs the help of her best friend Oliver to impress his colleagues and his family. But despite best laid plans, the pair set off a hilarious train of events that leads Katy on a crazy journey through celebrity, chaos, makeovers and, finally, into the arms of her hero...
