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 . .
Oh my god I absolutely LOVED this book so so so so much. To start with just look at that amazing cover, when it arrived in the post I could not stop looking at it.
This book (I know others have said this) was everything I wanted it to be and so much more. It had amazing lead characters & support characters. I especially loved Peach she is gem of a character
This novel is full of entertainment and lots and lots and of fun, it was a very easy lighthearted read and defiantly one to read with Jessica’s favorite tipple – pear cider.
Without sounding ,like other reviewers and bloggers I just want to say this is a truly faultless read from start to finish.
