Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Redundant again, Melissa reinvents herself and steps out in wig and with confidence as Honey, opening an agency to help men get their lives together. This is tremendous fun as the double-life of our endearing heroine gets highly complicated and highly entertaining. It seems complete but I’m told it is the start of a series.

Comparison: Sophie Kinsella, Elizabeth Buchan, Melissa Nathan.
Similar this month: Karen Quinn, Jane Moore.

If you like Hester Browne you might also like to read books by Jill Mansell, Helen Fielding and Sophie Kinsella.

Synopsis

Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne

When sweet, naive Melissa seeks a job with her old Home Economics teacher she is half way through the interview before it dawns on her that Mrs McKinnon isn't interested in her cookery skills, but is in fact running an escort agency. Melissa panics, but she needs the cash - and what harm can providing lonely men with stimulating conversation over dinner do? More exciting still, she’ll get to wear a disguise… Enter her alter ego: Honey. As flirty and feminine as a Bond girl, as confident and sexy as Mary Poppins in silk stockings, Honey brings out a side to Melissa she never knew she had. A side that will get her into hot water, (and out of it) and that she’ll never want to lose…
