Sometimes, finding love the second time around turns out to be more of a comedy than a romance…
Susie has just come out of a long-term marriage. It’s 2006 and Britain is booming. With her divorce concluded and financially secure she’s ready to launch herself back onto the dating scene. But what will she find?
With the kids grown up and freed from the fetters of a control freak husband (whom her mother jokingly refers to as Saddam), she applies her lip gloss, squeezes herself into her miracle pants and naively re-enters the dating world with her two best friends: Kim (the sexually knowledgeable divorcee) and Alison (the dreamy romantic).
Join Susie and her friends on their search to find “The One”. The comical journey includes escaping from ageing lotharios, fending off hot-blooded toyboys and the discovery of a surprise cure for labyrinthitis. Meantime, Susie’s mum finds great hilarity in her daughter’s romantic quest. In her optimistic attempts to find love Susie undertakes every form of dating imaginable including Europe’s last Matchmaking Festival in Ireland. Along the way she gamely explores ways to tackle the “Seventy Signs of Ageing”, takes herself off on a journey of self-discovery to the Far East, and reflects on just what love is.
Then comes the credit crunch…
Discover what implications this has for Susie’s life, love and career. One thing’s for sure – she keeps on laughing.
“Don’t Forget Your Miracle Pants!” is a true to life romantic comedy about dating, friendship, work, family, the survival of hope over experience and the politics of love.
“Was a fab book to read on my daily commute. A feel good journey that I’m sure most of us can relate to in one way or other. A well recommended read.”
“Not your typical chick lit. I loved the occasional commentary on the role of women in this book – plus it’s realistic and funny. Nice change from the usual formulaic stuff in this genre.”
“A very well written book, easy to read and so funny you need your miracle pants when reading it!”
“A fab and funny read. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. Lovely, light-hearted, witty book. Hope there’s more to come from this lady.”
Susie has a milestone year on the horizon and resolves to make the most of her birthday year. She’s older and definitely wiser now – and when it comes to love she discovers that just like football, it’s a game of two halves. The show’s not over until the fat lady sings; or rather the referee blows the whistle. Will she end up on the winning side or on the substitutes’ bench? Find out the full-time result in the sequel – “Don’t Forget Your Booster Bra! ” One thing’s for sure – she has a ball!
