Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A book to lap up in one go, giggling all the way. Sophie is such a clever author, she is easy to read, writes well and you really can’t second guess the conclusion. Full of funny incidents yet totally heart-warming too, she is in a class of her own. Very highly recommended.

Comparison: Alexandra Potter, Carmen Reid, Maria Beaumont.
Similar this month: None but try Elizabeth Noble.

If you like Sophie Kinsella you might also like to read books by Wendy Holden, Chris Manby and Carmen Reid.
