Long before Bridget Jones, there was Poppy Parker, an ordinary, insecure woman in her thirties. She was dumped unceremoniously four years ago by the love of her life and now raises her son alone. Poppy knows that her life would be perfect if she were a size 8 with a flat bottom, a large ample bosom and a man who wanted more than a quick fumble on top of the photocopier. Enter the world according to Ms Parker and chart her progress as she strives to become a ‘respectable mother’. This, however, is impossible as Poppy has mastered the art of self-doubt in everything. If only she could be her mother’s favourite, her bosses favourite. She even doubts she is her son’s favourite parent even though he has never met his father. Poppy yearns to wake up one morning to find she has transformed into her thinner prettier sister. Will all be perfect when her son’s father returns in her life? Will she finally be allowed to write ‘proper’ news stories at work? Will her neighbour really turn out to be a serial killer? The potential for Poppy to find happiness has always been there- it’s her fault if she never realises it. This book has been compared to Bridget Jones Diary. A hilarious and a heartwarming tale of relationships and love that is perfect for lovers of romantic comedy and chick lit novels by Sophie Kinsella. Full of hysterically embarrassing moments. You will remember PoppyParker long after you have finished reading this book.
