Handbags and Halos Summary

Handbags and Halos by Bernadette Strachan

Nell Fitzgerald worries that her life is shallow and meaningless. She's right - it is. Stricken by an acute pre-mid-life crisis, she's walked out on her obstreperous boyfriend, moved in with her icy Knightsbridge grandmother and been forced to assume the role of faux girlfriend to closet gay TV presenter, Blair Taylor, by her merciless boss at the Morgan theatrical agency.

In a desperate bid to inject a little depth into her existence, Nell enrols at 'Helping Hands' volunteer centre. There the frighteningly grown up coordinator, Phred, looks on in bemusement as a series of mishaps lead her to discover that 'doing good' doesn't offer the immediate rewards she'd bargained for.

Can Nell juggle the demands of her two very different worlds as well as her eccentric family, perplexed girlfriends and unexpected feelings for Phred?

Handbags and Halos Reviews

'It's official: the drought of fresh new chick-lit is over. Bernadette Strachan's second novel is entertaining and lively without a smug-married in sight - hurrah!...The sparkling language and hilarious scenes should keep you enthralled from the very first page... Heaven' * Heat on HANDBAGS AND HALOS *
'Fresh, funny and full of romance' * Company *
'A book, which like its heroine, has a heart of gold.' * Marie Claire *
'Really the most tremendous fun... I love the style, affectionately humorous at times, tongue-in-cheek, and then poignantly astute. Highly recommended.' * Sarah Broadhurst, Lovereading.co.uk *
'[The] characters are wonderfully written and full of life, and kept me laughing throughout. The plot races along with lots of lovely twists, and the ending is the perfect winter heart-warmer... I think I even preferred it to THE RELUCTANT LANDLADY, which I loved too.' * Fiona Walker *
Bernadette Strachan has ticked all the boxes for her debut novel. . . True love and a happy-ever-after ending? Well, that would be telling * Heat magazine on THE RELUCTANT LANDLADY *
. . . for the romantic of heart * Elle magazine on THE RELUCTANT LANDLADY *
The Reluctant Landlady is a rare gem: commercial women's fiction it may be but it's certainly not a hot-pink Jones clone. Strachan is the freshest and funniest writer to enter this genre since Lisa Jewell... and this is full of laugh-out-loud moments * Booksellers choice (Waterstones) The Bookseller *
