The Trials of Tiffany Trott

The Trials of Tiffany Trott Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tiffany Trott is attractive, eligible and sparky — so why is she ( as her bossy best friend puts it) a 'complete failure with men'? Stung into indignant action, she decides she?ll hunt down Mr Right herself — or even Mr All Right, who's got to be better than the Mr Catastrophics who litter her recent past. So begins Tiffany's eventful odyssey through the Love Jungle. From blindingly bland dates to introduction agencies, small ads and Club Med, Tiffany tries the lot in her quest for a mate. But as she ponders her puzzling lack of a life partner, Tiffany watches her friend face problems of their own — and begins to wonder whether marriage and motherhood is quite what she wants after all....

Review:

"Her distinctive humor is consistent, most memorably in Trott's experience as birthing coach to an unmarried friend - she graciously accepts the assumption that she is a lesbian partner. Quaint English vocabulary - 'nosh', 'knackered', 'beastly', 'pernicketiness' - will add to the amusement for stateside readers." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A surprising, satisfying and 'seriously successful' journey on top of a double-decker — but look out — this book will definitely make you miss your stop!" Jennifer Belle, author of Going Down
