Summary

Amanda's old school friends can't believe it when the social climbing queen of preen, Satan's very own PR girl, pulls off the ultimate publicity stunt in getting herself engaged to a Scottish laird.

Who cares that Fraser McConnald has worn the same pair of Converse trainers for the last three years and that his castle is a pile of rubble with one calor gas heater - she'll be titled!

Something must be done. Gentle, decent Fraser is clearly ignorant of her wiles, and Mel and Fran, still smarting from the memory of all the mean things Amanda put them through in their days at Portmount Comprehensive, set out to sabotage this mismatch of the century.

So between fighting off the attentions of a love-crazed accountant, keeping Fran's deadly manoeuvres with the opposite sex under control and trying to win her own war of love with the elusive but gorgeous Alex, Mel finds herself attending a wild Scottish stag night and a hen night from hell and preparing for a wedding that's everything you'd wish on your worst enemy.

Does Jenny Coogan have an evil twin...

...like the one she mentions towards the end of this story? It's so hard to believe that the person who wrote the Mure quartet - probably my all time sublime, favourite listens - could turn out something like this book, with its angry, unattractive 'heroine' whinging her way to a predictable conclusion. I kept listening, hoping the real JC would pop back for a clean up but, no and it's a toss up at the moment whether I return it or not. I don't know why I expect authors to be consistent but they're often not. Either way, don't let this one put you off her other books...

Weak!

Mel, the heroin, is weak, rude and childish. usually a fan of Jenny Colgan's books I found this one very irritating and could not listen until the end. Very disappointed.
