Summary

Disillusioned by her glitzy life in London and her desirable but cruel TV-presenter boyfriend, Rosie Richardson chucks it all in and spends four years running a refugee camp in Africa. Then famine strikes in a nearby province and an influx of starving refugees threatens to overwhelm the camp. Frustrated by the cautious response of the aid agencies, Rosie decides on a drastic short-term solution. She returns to London, breaks back into the celebrity circuit, and brings the celebs out to Africa for a star-studded TV emergency appeal.

Critic reviews

"Sharp, gutsy, and refreshing." ( Independent)
"A terrific achievement...The camp scenes are as moving and funny as the original M*A*S*H; she sends up the self-important 'mediacracy' with an insider's wit, and it's written at a romping pace with a cliff-hanger finish." ( Cosmopolitan)

Better Than I Thought

I was told a long while ago don't bother with this book it's not as good as her other books (Bridget Jones) so I left it alone, then recently I saw it in an audible sale and I thought why not I can always send it back. I can't believe I have not read this book sooner, it's a really good book, it's just different. Don't expect Bridget Jones and you will enjoy the book even more.
