Fudge Berries and Frogs Knickers by Lynda Renham

What They Say:

Poppy Wellesley is rich. In fact Poppy Wellesley is very rich, so when her fortunes change from riches to rags Poppy has to start a whole new life. Put yourself in her Guccis as she swaps her penthouse apartment for a run-down houseboat on Regent’s Canal. Meet her dippy friend Chelsea, the infamous Jack Diamond (see The Dog’s Bollocks) and her hunky boat neighbour, Taylor.

Will Poppy hold on to her millionaire fiancé or will Pug-face Pandora steal him from her? Can she avoid the advances from Balls (Lord Balthazar Wyndham-Price) or does she find true love on the canal?

 Fudge Berries and Frogs’ Knickers is a romantic comedy roller coaster ride that will put a smile on your face and a cheer in your heart.

What I Say:

I would like to thank the author and Tay for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When we first meet Poppy she has it all, she is the trust fund daughter of an MP, she also has a millionaire fiancé.  Within in the blink of an eye it is all taken away when her father is arrested for fraud.  Her fiancé unceremoniously dumps her and she is forced to sell all her belongings to make ends meet.

She is forced to move on the houseboat (Lynda had me giggling away at Poppy’s thinking she was moving to a massive yacht. Here she meets the hunky neighbour Taylor.  There are lots of laugh out loud moments in this book.

Poppy is one of those characters you either love or hate, personally I found her amusing, she is a little self-absorbed but it easy to see why when she is brought up in such a privileged way.  Taylor however doesn’t let this come between them.  There are a whole host of other characters, Chelsea Poppy's friend, her mother is so funny and Jack Diamond from another of Lynda's books.

The whole story is fabulously funny and just what is needed to liven up a cold night.  It’s the first of Lynda’s books I have read but will be looking out for more from her.

4 out of 5 stars
