Jessica Beam is a girl who knows how to party. Only lately she’s been forgetting to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Down on her luck, out of a job and homeless, Jess seeks the help of her long-lost grandmother.
Things aren’t going well for Matilda Beam, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage repayments are staggering and her granddaughter wears neon Wonderbras.
When a lifeline from a London publisher arrives, the pair have an opportunity to secure the roof over their heads – by invigorating the Good Woman guides and transforming modern, rebellious Jess into a demure vintage lady.The true test of their make-over will be to capture the heart of notorious London playboy Leo Frost and prove that Matilda’s guides still work. It’s going to take commitment, nerves of steel and one seriously pointy bra to pull this off . . .
I have read a lot of books in my life and even in 2015 and I can safely say this is one of the BEST books ever I’ve had the pleasure of reading .
I finished it with a huge aww and smile on my face and actually held the book to my chest.
This will make you laugh cry and swoon hard .
I adored Kristy’s debut book Yours Truly which was a excellent debut and was a bestseller .However this is just as good and then even more .
I laughed out really loud on the train and even within a few chapters I was giggling .
Kirstys writing is beautiful ,her characters are so genuine and you will want Jess as your best friend.
Such a brilliant concept and there are secret delights along the way in the form f diary entries which add to the story even more .
I can relate to Jess and I loved her and if you didn’t already know shes going to be back in 2016!! She is a party girl but underneath shes hiding her true soft side but how will this be brought out .
You have to read this book it will make your day week month or even year.
I wish Kirsty all the luck with this book and future books and I know for sure I will be one of her fans pre ordering .
Thanks for writing such a treat and hope I have done it the justice it deserves as I cant give it enough praise!!
