Lucy Talk by Fiona Walker
'This morning, a lime-green plastic ghoul fell out of my Honey Puffs cereal packet and I had the most brilliant idea. A Halloween party at Burr Cottage - theme, come as your favourite creep. "Greg won't need to dress up, then," said Jane. Jane is understandably jealous of darling Greg, who is a gentleman among boyfriends.' Meet Lucy Gordon, the sweet, scatty, irresistible heroine of Fiona Walker's delicious new novel. Lucy lives in a Berkshire village with her two friends, Jane and Bella, and works in the marketing department of Widgetex Computers. Her boss - Slave Driver - is a constant bane; her family are lovable eccentrics; her boyfriend, the dishy but fickle Greg, takes shameless advantage of her (Lucy is too good hearted to notice). Throughout two action-packed, fun-filled, disaster-strewn years, Lucy charts an erratic course among this motley crew to her very own happy ending.
