LoveReading View on Handbags And Halos

Really the most tremendous fun as a pampered theatrical management PA girl juggles two worlds, the celeb life and hands-on charity work in a centre for the homeless.  I love the style, affectionately humorous at times, tongue-in-cheek, and then poignantly astute.  It’s got a great twist at the surprising end too.  Highly recommended.

Handbags And Halos Synopsis

Nell Fitzgerald worries that her life is shallow and meaningless. She's right - it is. Stricken by an acute pre-mid-life crisis, she's walked out on her boyfriend, moved in with her Knightsbridge grandmother and been forced to assume the role of faux girlfriend to closet gay TV presenter, Blair Taylor, by her boss at the Morgan theatrical agency.

Meet a brand new, loveable leading lady from the author of the 100,000-copy-selling debut "The Reluctant Landlady". Nell Fitzgerald worries that her life is shallow and meaningless. She's right - it is. Stricken by an acute pre-mid-life crisis, she's walked out on her obstreperous boyfriend, moved in with her icy Knightsbridge grandmother and been forced to assume the role of faux girlfriend to closet gay TV presenter, Blair Taylor, by her merciless boss at the Morgan theatrical agency. In a desperate bid to inject a little depth into her existence, Nell enrols at 'Helping Hands' volunteer centre. There the frighteningly grown up coordinator, Phred, looks on in bemusement as a series of mishaps lead her to discover that 'doing good' doesn't offer the immediate rewards she'd bargained for. Can Nell juggle the demands of her two very different worlds as well as her eccentric family, perplexed girlfriends and unexpected feelings for Phred?
