Reviews

‘Hilarious book I couldn’t put it down have bought more books by this author. *

An absolutely hilarious rom-com. A tongue in cheek view of romance where middle class meets upper class and how obstacles are overcome.’

‘Lynda Renham is fast becoming my favourite author. She writes in a way that gets you instantly hooked and rooting for those who should be together but aren’t yet! I recommend this and every other book she has written. She can’t write them fast enough for me.’

Review

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 hilarious moments. If you need a lift for whatever reason, then this is the book for you. It covers every emotion.

Harriet’s Big Fat Wedding Blunder

8174wYTOYpL.SR160,240_BG243,243,243

On arriving home after a friend’s posh wedding, launderette worker Harriet finds her life has irrevocably changed when 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’.

Review

Harriet Lawson is my kind of gal. Feisty and with a great sense of humour, she has some great 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. Harriet had already given up her dream to become a nurse in underprivileged areas so she could support Julian in his new venture and took a job 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 when the situation gets a whole lot worse. In the meantime, the wealthy and pompous Hamilton Lancaster is in a fix as he is desperate to inherit his grandmother’s shares but can only do so if he proves he is in a stable relationship. After all, his grandmother only has six months to live. A chance meeting at a mutual friend s wedding leads to Harriet receiving an exciting proposition, and while she feels uncomfortable with it, it could solve her increasingly mounting problems. What could go wrong? and who is the gorgeous guy she meets at the wedding who caused her to tingle in all sorts of places?

Review

Harriet s character is brilliant, and she had me in stitches. She is very much your everyday 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 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 favourite authors. –BigBookLittleBook.com

Reviews for ‘Coconuts and Wonderbras’

‘This is the second Lynda Renham book I have read. Croissants & Jam was wonderful, and I loved every minute of it. I was excited to read Coconuts. Lynda has a great knack for 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, heartwarming, 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 Croissants and Jam, which I loved. I’m glad I did.

The novel revolves around Literary Agent Libby, who reluctantly agrees to follow SAS hero, war correspondent 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 Croissants 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 throughout – she is 10stone something (the reader gets informed this numerous times) – may be 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’

LRC-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!
