Newly engaged Natalie will do anything for a quiet life and telling a few white lies never does any harm. It's not like people will ever discover what she's really thinking... Until one night, thanks to a pub hypnotist, Natalie's most private thoughts pop out of her mouth. When she has no way to break the hypnotist's spell, Natalie is forced to face the truths she has been avoiding her whole life...
"I cannot tell a lie... this book is fabulous." (Lucy Diamond, author of
Me and Mr Jones)"Kookier than Kinsella, but just as comical. Fabulous feel-good fun!" (Ali McNamamara)

Ludicrous - but great fun
Have you ever heard yourself assuring a hairdresser "Yes, that's lovely thanks" when you are cringing at the sight of the hair disaster in the mirror? I have.
So has Natalie Elspeth Butterworth, age 27, who also has a bit in common with the celebrated Adrian Mole, aged 13 and 3/4. Not in the story but in her very individual take on the world, and a naivety that borders on stupidity at times. Natalie is much kinder and less self obsessed though. This is unashamed escapist chick-lit that crosses into farce a lot of the time, and the mix works.
I'm older than 27, (considerably older), but I enjoyed it so don't assume it's just for the teens and twenties. It's probably too long and would have been improved by a tighter edit and a bit less introspection, but it's still well worth a listen if you'd like to try something different, and very funny.
