The Good, the Bad and the Dumped by Jenny Colgan

Posy is delighted when Matt proposes - on top of a mountain, in a gale, in full-on romantic mode. But then disaster strikes and he backs out of the engagement. Crushed and humiliated, Posy starts thinking. Why has her love life always, ALWAYS ended in total disaster? Determined to discover how she got to this point, Posy resolves to track down her exes ...Is there hope for Matt, or will she fall back in love with an old flame? What about Lord Voldemort, the old boyfriend that cannot be named? And could Posy face up to the idea that, actually, one day she could live life on her own terms?


A delicious comedy * Red * Fast-paced, funny, poignant and well observed * Daily Mail * Sweeter than a bag of jelly beans . . . had us eating up every page * Cosmopolitan * Sheer indulgence from start to finish * Sophie Kinsella * Classic Colgan - a hugely entertaining storyline peppered with cracking one-liners. Get the margaritas lined up because you won't be moving * Daily Record * The perfect novel for anyone who's ever been tempted to track down their exes. Funny and entertaining, it's one for those lazy afternoons at the beach * Take a Break * A Jenny Colgan novel is as essential for a week in the sun as Alka Seltzer, aftersun and far too many pairs of sandals * Heat *
