This book received some great coverage, especially in view of the tough competition it faced in July. Helen secured a half-page feature article in the DAILY TELEGRAPH on sleaze in the city, as well as a review in the TELEGRAPH's book pages and a mention in the Diary. The book was one of four recommended beach reads in THE MIRROR's summer reading round-up, the PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH chose it as their Book of the Month for July and THE TIMES 'PLAY' magazine also reviewed. Helen was interviewed by the IRISH POST (due to appear this month) and by LBC radio - Helen was Mark Dolan's guest Sunday newspaper reviewer on 28 July. Magazine coverage was also strong, with reviews in NEW WOMAN, HEAT and BEST, as well as a competition and feature in WOMAN'S OWN due to be published in September. Finally, the launch dinner at Champney's City Health Resort was a roaring success, with journalists and Orion staff alike enjoying a healthy yet delicious meal (washed down with plenty of champagne!). The next day Helen visited key booksellers around London to sign stock and deliver goody bags containing 'Light as a Feather' t-shirts, delicious Maison Paul pastries and yet more champagne - not surprisingly, the booksellers are keen for Helen to visit again next year.

To summarise, I loved Helen Dunne's Trixie Trader but this one just didn't do it for me! Maybe next time Helen!
This was the first book from Helen Dunne that I read and I really like it. Ms. Dunne gives her character real emotions about what it means to be heavy in a thin world. Overall "Light as a Feather was a really great Chick-lit that should not be missed.
I just want to know if the author has actually met the male hero - so I know if I should keep looking? Does he exist?
Lets hope Helen writes a few more if these!
