Sweet Temptation by Lucy Diamond
  

Lovereading view...

A wonderfully warm and utterly compelling novel from the author of Hens Reunited. Characterisation is spot on and the writing style slips down a treat, a bit like a glass of decent wine! With more romance between the covers than many other author’s books put together you’re in for a treat.

June 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

The Good Housekeeping view...

Lucy Diamond’s tale of three friends who support each other through the trials and tribulations of FatBusters slimming club in Sweet Temptation is an uplifting celebration of sisterhood.

Synopsis

Sweet Temptation by Lucy Diamond

Maddie's getting it from all sides. Her bitchy new boss at the radio station humiliates her live on air about her figure, her glamour-puss mum keeps dropping not-so-subtle hints that Maddie should lose weight and her kids are embarrassed to be seen with her after the disastrous Mums' race at their school sports day. Something's got to change...Maddie joins the local weight-watching group expecting more humiliation but instead finds two unlikely allies - bitter divorcee Lauren who, despite running a dating agency, has signed off romance for ever and shy Jess, the beautician, who's desperate to fit into a size 10 wedding dress for her Big Day.
