Enjoyable and witty romantic comedy in which dizzyingly rich It Girl Poppy is left high and dry when her father ( my daddy, my knight in shining Armani ), multimillionaire Minister for Family, is charged with fraud and her bank account is frozen. This puts not only her champagne lifestyle in jeopardy, but also her impending marriage to compulsive gambler Roddy. She takes refuge on a houseboat on Regent s Canal, and discovers she has a hottie for a neighbour. Renham, whose style has been likened to that of Sophie Kinsella, is the author of appetisingly entitled novels such as Croissants and Jam and Coconuts and Wonderbras. --The Bookseller - March 2015

Lynda is the author of many romantic novels including Pink Wellies and Flat Caps, Coconuts and Wonderbras, and The Dog's Bollocks. Fudge Berries was recommended to me, and after two chapters I was already downloading more of Lynda's books, because frankly? This lady is hilarious.
Poppy Wellesley finds herself penniless within hours when her millionaire minister father is charged for fraud. With her bank account now frozen, Poppy has to fend for herself, without the help of her daddy and his vast amount of cash. Now an outsider to her usual crowd of equally rich It-girls, Poppy is forced to begin a new life. Very reluctantly. And with no money, there's no swanky penthouse apartment - she'll have to downsize. Though when she lays eyes on the slightly dishevelled houseboat on Regent's Canal that's now her new home, she wonders if she'll ever be able to get her old life back.
Especially as she doesn't immediately seem to get on with the neighbours...
Marrying her millionaire fiance is a possible solution to the cash-flow problem - though with her current predicament, will the marriage still be on the cards? With sly Pandora making a move on Poppy's only potential way to regain her status, Poppy realises that she's going to have to fight for it. With the help of fun (yet extremely ditzy) Chelsea, Poppy puts her plan into action, however there's just a little setback; her handsome and quite mysterious neighbour on the next boat...
Fudge Berries has a wonderfully funny cast of characters (including gangster Jack Diamond and Lord Wyndham-Price - aka 'Balls') and Lynda's witty writing style just makes this book perfect. At first, I thought I would hate Poppy - after all, she's a socialite, reliant on her family's cash to get by. But I couldn't help but love her and root for her throughout. I found it impossible to put this book down until I had finished it. (I am now halfway through The Dog's Bollocks, which is just as funny!)
If you are looking for some witty, blunt humour, great characters and of course, some romance, then I highly suggest checking out Fudge Berries and Frogs' Knickers.
Love is the best thing.
Thank you for a gorgeous time spent reading.
The formula is simple girl meets boy, they hate each other at first and then fall in love.
Simple but it works brilliantly thanks to the fact that Lynda creates such amazing, funny and endearing characters.
The story lines are great and the feel good factor is in abundance.
As rom coms go you cannot get better than this.
Great light reading that makes you feel all fluffy inside.
All you need is a box of chocolates and lifes perfect
