A absolute joy to read!,
This review is from: Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes (Paperback)
Fat Girls & Fairy Cakes by Sue Watson won me over in the first couple of pages.
It centres on Stella Weston, who works as a TV producer with the boss from hell. I was laughing out loud at so much of the story, from the goings-on on location in Rochdale while filming the religious gardening programme, to the disastrous encounters with Diego the doctor, and the numerous clever one-liners.
The story has some very touching moments, too. Stella's marriage is rocky, she struggles to make a success of a new venture and troubles beset her closest friends. But Sue Watson handles these aspects with great warmth, leading her main character through the serious stuff, and eventually out the other side.
An absolute joy to read, Fat Girls & Fairy Cakes is one of those books that you just don't want to end.
