Are blondes really ditzier than their brunette counterparts? And do men truly find blondes more attractive?
Patricia Stillwell has spent her entire life disdaining blondes. Along with her best friends and housemates, Pinky McGee and Paul Costello, Patricia has always been the more intellectual film noir type. All that changes when Patricia participates in an experimental weight loss study- and wakes up blonde!
Patricia's whole world changes once she's blonde. Suddenly, the yummy-looking owner's son, Brett Nordquist, is noticing her and Patricia is having a blast with her newfound popularity. But what about Paul, who is starting to look more like a romantic interest than a roommate? What can a brunette do when she is struck with HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS?
Suzanne MacPherson has written a side-splitting tale about the stereotypes of the brunette versus the blonde female. While the story does nothing to eradicate those stereotypes, HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS provides numerous moments of sheer hilarity. Patricia's metamorphosis from an intelligent, thoughtful, and clear thinking brunette into a blonde only interested in money, society, and other's opinions is one guaranteed to keep the reader flipping the pages, hoping Patricia's sanity will return.
HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS also presents the reader with a moral to the story: sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side! Patricia's journey into the uglier side of popularity and wealth teaches her some valuable lessons. Lizbeth Summers is Patricia's primary nemesis in HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS and Patricia struggles with her desire to remain who she is or become more like Lizbeth. Pinky McGee, however, steals the show! Pinky's solid, level-headed thinking help keep the storyline from wandering off into the ridiculous.
Suzanne MacPherson is definitely an author to watch out for! Creating romantic comedy that is truly humorous without being over-the-top is difficult and yet the process seems effortless while reading HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS. One word of caution while reading this book: don't read in public unless you are prepared for the funny looks you'll receive as you laugh out loud!!
