Book details (as per amazon page)
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.
Oh my goodness, I absolutely adored this book, this was a story to bring some cheer on a very cold winter’s day. Lynda Renham has such a wicked sense of humour. I love a book that makes you laugh out loud but also keeps you enthralled with the story. This is a rags to riches reversal story. Poppy has it all: wealth, big house, high society friends and she thought happiness with her forthcoming nuptials with Lord Roddy. When her wealth is suddenly ‘frozen’ her life takes an unexpected turn. An adventure, she wishes she could wake up and realise it was only a dream, begins. Poppy literally has to start again; new home, new friends, find a job!!! She and her society friends experience lots of firsts in this very funny novel. I loved how the barriers of working class and higher class were broken and friendships and alliances were made. Lynda has created some wonderful characters in this novel, all very unique with great comical moments that will have me giggling for a long time, her mum is a scream and Chelsea is loveable. This novel is a witty, romantic, heart warming 5/5* read.
