9780099524632: Glamorous (double) Life of Isabel Bookbinder

Isabel Bookbinder is a twenty-seven-year-old assistant at the Saturday Mercury newspaper in London. She has a disinterested boyfriend, a mother who loves clothes that match, and a father who always expects her to do better.

Although Isabel may spend most of her time measuring newspaper column inches, she's well on her way to becoming a bestselling author. She's already perfected Her Look (cashmere track suit, lots of mascara), is working on her toned size eight figure, and gets up at dawn to work on her novel (well, sort of). She even has a fabulous mentor -- a bestselling but increasingly eccentric author who takes her to glamorous book parties and introduces her to the dreamy literary agent Joe Madison. But when she inadvertently exposes a political sex scandal and her name becomes known for all the wrong reasons, her glamorous double life starts to spin out of control.

With her distinctive voice, penchant for getting in sticky situations, and blind confidence in her dream of becoming a famous novelist, Isabel Bookbinder is a heroine that you can't help but root for.

About the Author:

Holly McQueen has wanted to be a writer ever since discovering that the nuns at her junior school would let her off maths homework if she wrote a story instead. After unexpected detours via law, magazine journalism, and even musical theatre, she began writing her first novel in 2006. Holly lives with her husband in London. She still avoids math.

Review:

"If you like Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books and you miss Bridget Jones, then meet Isabel." -- The Mail on Sunday (4 Stars)

"A fast-paced, outrageous, irreverent story starring a heroine you will not soon forget. This is one of the funniest books I've read in years." -- Karen Quinn, author of The Ivy Chronicles and Holly Would Dream

"I quite fell in love with Isabel. Funny, charming and accident prone, she is a perfect heroine for today." -- Penny Vincenzi, author of An Absolute Scandal and Something Dangerous
