Bad Heir Day: A Comedy of High Class and Dire Straits Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deliciously wicked and hugely entertaining.

-Booklist

Anna's boyfriend is impossibly handsome, impossibly rich, and generally just impossible. When he inevitably dumps her, she vows to give up men and throws herself into her career as an aspiring novelist. Which is how she ends up working for Cassandra.

The social climber from hell, Cassandra has a huge mansion, a philandering rock star husband, Satan for a son, and a bestselling writing career that has massively stalled.

So when dashing Jamie, charming heir to a castle in Scotland, offers Anna an escape beyond her wildest dreams, she can't believe her luck. And she probably shouldn't...

A romp of a novel...Wendy Holden writes with delicious verve and energy.

-Mail on Sunday

Well observed and witty.

-Mirror

Laugh-out-loud funny...a treat.

-Express

Wendy Holden, author of Farm Fatale and Beautiful People, is a master of the sweetly savage satire and is the author of nine top-ten UK bestsellers.

Synopsis:

A smart, sassy send-up by a #1 bestselling author in the UK-more than 2 million books sold

Wendy Holden, a master at the sweetly savage satire and author of nine top ten UK bestsellers, struck gold with this second beloved novel that found a big audience on first publication. This reissue will be relished by old fans and those drawn in by more recent smash hits like Beautiful People. Holden explores the story of Anna, who takes a job as a nanny to a ritzy family who turns out to be from hell. Anna has vowed to give up men forever after being dumped by her rich, handsome boyfriend, so when she meets Jamie, a dashing Scottish heir to a castle, she figures he's too good to be true...

"Perfect." -Times of London

"Wendy Holden has made the raunch romp her own."-Glamour
