When 29-year-old Binki Grayson is offered a Christmas bonus by her boss at the office party she didn’t imagine he meant a quickie over his desk. Things for Binki just go from bad to worse and by Christmas Day she is not only jobless but boyfriend-less, so when she discovers her late Aunt Vera has left her something in her will she thinks things can only get better. What she doesn’t realise is that her inheritance comes with a complication by the name of William Ellis.
A mishmash of misunderstandings, sex-shop escapades, high finance and a blooming romance make It Had to Be You another hilarious romantic comedy by the uproarious Lynda Renham.
I don’t think I’ve laughed out loud as much reading a book. My family think I’ve gone mad. If you like Sophie Kinsella, Millie Johnson books this is better with some really funny moments. If you need a lift for whatever reason then this is the book for you, it covers every emotion.
The Dog’s Bollocks
On arriving home after a friend’s posh wedding, launderette worker Harriet finds her life irrevocably changed as she discovers her flat ransacked and her boyfriend missing. In a matter of hours she is harassed by East End gangsters and upper crust aristocrats. Accepting an offer she can’t refuse, Harriet, against her better judgement becomes the fiancée of the wealthy Hamilton Lancaster, with dire consequences. What she had not bargained on was meeting Doctor Brice Edmunds.
The Dog’s Bollocks is Lynda Renham’s funniest novel so far. A cocktail of misunderstandings, three unlikely gangsters, a monkey and a demented cat make this novel a hysterical read. Follow Harriet’s adventure where every attempt to get out of trouble puts her deeper in it.
THE DOG’S BOLLOCKS WAS PREVIOUSLY NAMED ‘THE VALENTINE PRESENT AND OTHER DIABOLICAL LIBERTIES’.
Harriet Lawson is my kind of gal. Feisty and with a great sense of humour, she has some fabulous one liners and is a great main character for this book. Unfortunately she is partnered with a bit of a smarmy loser, Julian, who has done the dirty on her big time but not in the way you might think. Having given up on her dream to nurse in underprivileged areas abroad in order to support Julian in his new venture, and having to work in a launderette whilst trying to keep up with her studies, Harriet is frustrated and just trying to make the best of a bad situation a situation that is going to get a whole lot worse. In the meantime the very rich and pompous Hamilton Lancaster is in a fix as he is desperate to inherit his grandmothers shares but has to show himself to be responsibly settling down as soon as possible in order to do so. After all, his grandmother only has six months to live…. A chance meeting at a mutual friend s wedding leads to Harriet receiving a very interesting proposition and while she feels uncomfortable with it it could solve her increasingly mounting problems. What could go wrong? And who is the very gorgeous guy she also met at the wedding who caused her to tingle in all sorts of places?! This was an hilarious read. Harriet s character is brilliant and she had me in stitches. She is very much your normal average girl thrust into a ridiculous situation and trying to muddle her way through it. Just when you think things can t get any worse they do. Initially I felt sorry for her as she is seemingly blinded by her love for Julian but thankfully as events transpire she comes to realise that what she thought was love, really isn t at all. More a relationship of convenience and mostly convenient for Julian. There is a delightful selection of characters from the faithful and all over the place best friend Fi and her stuttering boyfriend Alistair, who is the butt of many a joke, to the bumbling wannabe East End gangsters and the very upper class family to which Hamilton belongs and who are all hiding secrets of their own. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A carefully written story with many intricacies woven in and yet told in such a witty and relaxed style that as the reader I was pulled in and kept there wanting to keep turning the page to find out what was going to happen next. Verdict: I was already a fan of Lynda Renham having read and enjoyed Pink Wellies and Flat Caps , Wedding Cake to Turin and Coconuts and Wonderbras . Her latest release therefore, The Dog’s Bollocks has firmly established her as one of my favorite authors. –BigBookLittleBook.com

Reviews for ‘Coconuts and Wonderbras’
‘This is the second Lynda Renham book I have read, Croissants & Jam was wonderful and loved every minute of it. I was excited to read Coconuts. Lynda has a great knack of writing about girls/women you can relate to and understand. The men in her books come alive in your head and you fall in love with them. This is a well written, heart warming, funny story. I was hooked from page one. Light & breezy, complete girly indulgence! Highly recommended. –A. McCarthy’

‘I bought this book on the back or reading Coissants and Jam which I loved. I’m glad I did.
The novel revolves around Literary Agent Libby who relutantly agrees to follow SAS hero, war correspondant and writer Alex to Cambodia to promote his latest book after falling out with her idiotic/arrogant boyfriend Toby. Libby and Alex are really well written, I got frustrated with Libby at times (I put this down to good writing) and wanted to reach into the book and slap her. Once in Cambodia what could go wrong does go wrong and in parts it did remind me of Bridget Jones, Edge of Reason (referenced a couple of times in the book). The story is told from various characters points of view, Alex, Libby and Issy her friend. And there are some similarities with Coissants and Jam with certain situations Libby finds herself in and with her obsession with weight and eating cake (btw Libby describes herself and is described by others as fat thoughtout – she is 10stone something (the reader gets informed this numerous times) – maybe a personal thing but this slightly grated on me a little…)
There are some laugh out funny parts, one bit in particular involving coconuts and motorbikes had me laughing so much my other half told me to shut up. These bits work so well. I forgave my frustration with Libby just purely on these parts alone.
Its a really lovely easy read and I did really like this book and recommend you buy it if you like a book that moves along at a quick pace with hilarious bits thrown in for good measure!’
‘Croissants and Jam’
WHAT A GREAT REVIEW. A film, ooh I hope so…
Croissants and Jam seized my heart of steel and barbwire… and melted it into a simmering pool of marshmallow and milk chocolate. Hollywood take note: Croissants and Jam is what heart-pounding and nerve-tingling romantic comedies are made of. Breathtaking. Intelligent. Magical. Mesmerizing. Pulse-pounding. Rip-roaring. Spine-tingling. Soul stirring. Unforgettable. Whimsical. I can go on and on and on describing Lynda Renham’s bewitching novel, but I want to cut to the chase so you can grab a copy and see for yourself.
Annabel “Bels” Lewis has just two days to get to her wedding in Rome but her trip is plagued with one catastrophe after another as destiny takes hold and casts its spin.
Enter Christian. A dashing and adventurous stranger she encounters along the way. Will Bels get to her wedding on time or will the mesmerizing Christian transform her life?
Croissants and Jam is without a doubt one of the best romantic comedies of our time — yep, including those on the screen. I even visualized the cast in my head. I think David A Gregory would be a juicy Christian and Bree Williamson would be a smashing Bels. *sigh*
Renham inks an action-packed, quick paced adventure with strong characters who interact fluidly from start to finish. Renham also illustrates a gift for deftly balancing sizzling chemistry, effortless humor and witty dialogue.
As for the ending, Renham would be wise to release a sequel — soon. SOON! SWOON! SOON!
‘This must be the best book I’ve ever read, The reader may get a few strange looks if reading this on public transport, because it has some really laugh out loud parts in it, it’s so cleverly written. If it was possible to give it more than 5 stars it would not be any less than it deserves’
