' It's time to hang up your handbag and dance around your glitterball'
Three woman, an ex-model, a rock star manager and a magazine editor, are challenged by their best friend, eighties pop idol Jack Valentine, to find a husband before they hit their forties. He will give them one million pounds, all they have to do is find Mr Right. That shouldn't be too hard, should it? But they discover that most eligible men are taken, and those who are still cruising the single market aren't there for nothing! Join these three women in their search for love in a story full of hunky men (or are they?) and dazzling disco music. A jaunty read and a deliciously comforting end...

nothing for me. also, the problem with this book (and also Dancing with mules) is the amount of characters being shortly after each other introduced, which is confusing and because of so many different characters, none of them is really credible or detailed. and PLEASE if you have an old ugly guy with a lazy eye or whatever, no suit nor sunglasses are going to help make him look like a hunk all of a sudden. also the fact that Valerie does not really love her husband-to-be, well, why marry then? And all of a sudden, Sinead fancies Jack? please. now where did that come from? they were always good friends, yes, but still, it did not make sense at all. I would definitely not recommend this book.

I bought this book from the bargain bin of an australian bookshop. It was very cheap and was bought to read on a plane. In that context it was an OK read, some funny setups, unchallenging and doesn't require much in the way of concentration.

The ending was incredibly predictable - you could pair off the characters from about a quarter of the way through the book, and the whole story was cliched - it was as if it had been written to a particular predetermined formula laid down by some marketing bod at the publishers.

So whilst it wasn't a chore to read, I could tell why it ended up in the bargain bin (although not necessarily how it made it to the other side of the world!)

It wasn't as good as "Dancing With Mules" but it had some laugh out loud moments. Prunty is definitely better than others who claim to write in this genre, but does not live up to the high expectations I had after reading her debut novel.

How can you honestly have any kind of empathy with the characters in this novel? I thought that the first rule of the Chick Lit Genre novel was that you had to at least have SOMETHING, however small, in common with the heroine(s)? I am a marketing dream as far as these novels are concerned (right age, right gender, right sexual orientation etc.) and I have never EVER met ANYONE who has fallen in love with "a man of diminished stature" (a dwarf to those of you who do not care for PC terms), neither do I know ANY women of a certain age (creeping up on 40) with supermodel figures that are as desperate and dateless as Siobhan and Karin! It's a bit of an oxymoron isn't it! And how many washed up rock stars do YOU know? Still, I expect that's why we call it fiction.
All implausibility aside I thought it was intensely sad that the only happy ending available to us was that, suddenly, the awful bug-eyed Eamonn turns into George Clooney and that the pathetic Karin is so sequestered away from reality that she could even consider Eamonn to be the man of her dreams. And Siobhan "winning" the heart of the recovering elderly alcoholic rock star - "lucky" her! Still, at least Valerie gets to marry someone that she is "quite fond" of. I'm having trouble understanding the hidden message Morag. Are you trying to tell us that we should be happy to just settle for what we can get? Or do you think I should rush out and marry the first reasonably good looking bloke I can find, who doesn't need a kicking by the fashion police and who can still look forward to his 35th birthday?
To sum it up I found it all a bit depressing. I hope the next book is a bit more cheerful!
