Product Description

Tracy is the new girl in the office. A sassy nineteen year old with an eye for cloned fashion and an ear for the latest gossip, she reveals all in a series of emails written to her friend, Emma. Tracy doesn't spare anyone's blushes as she dishes the dirt on her friends, family, and foes. If something is worth hearing, it is worth telling...

Everyone gets the Tracy Treatment, her benefit-fiddling father, her porn obsessed boyfriend, even her pocket billiards champion boss. Not forgetting the office’s serial bum pincher and his latest conquest, the office tart.

Behind Tracy’s wide eyed innocence and reassuring smile lies a muck spreader of the highest calibre.

No secret is safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hilarious 20 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Tracy has a new office job, but she's not about to allow that minor annoyance to interfere with important stuff like emailing her best friend, Emma. And there's plenty to gossip about. For a start there're her three bosses: Mr Tugger - who's forever playing with something in his pocket, Mr Winkle - a happy soul with a lisp and a funny walk, and the serial backside-slapper, Mr Blunt.

Others at the sharp end of Tracy's keyboard are Olivia - the office tart, Ms Broadbeam, Spotty Irene and Tommy Tightpecs the IT man. People outside the work environment aren't safe from the Tracy treatment either as she keeps Emma up-to-date on the scandal involving Petrol Pauline from the garage and Mike the Mechanic.

And Tracy's personal life fairs no better. Through her emails we hear all about the boyfriend - more preoccupied with girls online than with her, her benefit-cheat father, and the extremely creepy driving instructor, Mr Pranger.

Written by T. A. Belshaw, who's found the perfect voice for this character, there was something to make me laugh out loud in every chapter of Tracy's Hot Mail. This is a recommended read for any time you need cheering up or for when you're in the mood for a right good goss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly enjoyable read 23 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
First up, let me say, Trevor writes like a girl! It's a compliment, honest. In fact, it's slightly worrying how well he channels the voice of a twenty-something girl, but I think that's a whole other blog post.

Seriously, Trevor manages to bring Tracy to life through his witty choice of words and laugh-out-loud scenarios. Each character is so perfectly created, they practically jump off the page (or screen) and Tracy is as likable as characters come, even with her many flaws. I'm tempted to liken her to Bridget Jones, but that doesn't really do 'Tracy's Hot Mail' justice.

If you're looking for a fun, easy, truly enjoyable read, Tracy's Hot Mail is it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read Tracy's Hot Mail in bed 28 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Don't read Tracy's Hot Mail in bed, if you do make sure the whole family are reading it too. The howls of laughter are sure to wake the rest of the house. I love Tracy, she is hilarious. I would love to work with someone like her, the day would go so quickly. Her naivety shines through and had me in stitches. Well done T A Belshaw, it takes a lot to make me laugh. Can't wait for your next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A laugh a minute! 22 Jan 2012
By Pammie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to the launch of this. Waiting patiently all week as the build up began. And it didn't disappoint. I read it in just under twenty-four hours as it was so hard to put down. I sniggered and giggled as Tracy told her tales to friend Emma via emails. Choked on my cuppa with the driving lessons. A real uplifting read for a cold damp afternoon. Please try it and give yourself a laugh. I can't wait for the next one now Tracy has been "discovered" and is being boosted to celeb status. Well done, Trevor and thanks so much for the entertainment.

By tjreids
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The funniest book I've read in a long long while... wilder, wittier and a hell of a lot naughtier than Bridget Jones..Tracy's Hot Mail is a rollicking laugh- a -minute romp that will rattle your funny bone and tickle your fancy from beginning to end. Thoroughly recommended. Warning: don't read in a public place.. you'll only regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Tracy! 13 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought a copy of Tracy for my Kindle now she's had a facelift (new cover & new publisher!), and it was like meeting up with an old friend when I started reading the book again.

It's possible that I may have looked a bit odd, as I sat in my car outside school laughing at some of the funny bits. And they *are* funny.

The first time I read this book I thought it was a refreshing read, but a year later, reading it again, it's just as funny, just as different, just as wonderful.

Highly recommended, and I hope to read more written from the point of view of Tracy soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little rib tickler... 22 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tracy is a new addition to the office. At Nineteen, she is a girl about town who knows it all, or so she thinks. Like most people these days, she's addicted to Facebook, MSN and other Social Media, but when she's told that she can't access these at work, she resorts to keep her best friend abreast of events via a series of e-mails.

Everyone falls under the ever watchful eye of Tracy, as she puts her own unique spin on the people that surround her, both at work and at home.

Tracy's Hot Mail is full of characters and events to make you laugh, and sometimes cringe, at Tracy's naive understanding of them.

From the office letch, who is constantly playing with coins in his pocket, right through to the driving instructor, who insists that she needs more lessons getting in and out of the car before she's ready to take her test, Tracy's Hot mail will have you chuckling away like a Hyena.

T A Belshaw has successfully tapped into the feminine psyche of a nineteen year old young woman, giving Tracy's Hot Mail the perfect voice and whilst she's quite naive, the events that go on around her would transfer well to the small screen.

Move over 'Belle de Jour'....There's a new kid in town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tracy's hot Mail 21 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Tracy's Hot Mail, made me laugh from beginning to end. Belshaw does a fantastic job of the dim Tracy relating events via email whilst at her place of work to her best friend. Tracy's lack of grey matter is overlooked by the office letch, who permanently jangles coinage in his pocket - or so she believes!
Tracy's emails recount hilarious detailed disasters of her driving lessons, her father's inability to hold down a job; and his larcenous activities when he eventually manages to get one!

I can highly recommend this book as a whopping good read and look forward to more from this very talented man.

Well done, Trevor Belshaw.
