Yours Truly by Kirsty Greenwood
Your bum does not look big in that dress.
Mmm, it tastes delicious!
Of course you’re better looking than Jon Hamm.
Newly engaged Natalie Butterworth is an easy-going girl. She’ll do anything for a quiet life and if telling a few teensy white lies keeps her friends and family happy, then so what? It’s not like they’ll ever discover what she’s really thinking…
Until one night, thanks to a pub hypnotist, Natalie’s most private thoughts begin to bubble up and pop out of her mouth. Things get very messy indeed, especially when some sticky home truths offend her fiancé.
Natalie must track down the hypnotist before the wedding is officially cancelled. So along with bad influence bestie Meg, Natalie finds herself in the Yorkshire Parish of Little Trooley – a small village bursting with big secrets, nosy old folk and intriguing Wellington-wearing men.
When the girls get stranded in the village with no means of escape and no way to break the hypnotist’s spell, Natalie is forced to face the truths she has been avoiding her whole life…
We have all been in that situation where its easier to tell a white lie than what you’re really thinking, but what if one day you can’t lie and before you even realise it you are telling everyone the truth without editing your thoughts first.
This is exactly the situation that Natalie finds herself in when she inadvertently gets hypnotised following a night out with best friend Meg.
Soon realising that telling the truth isn’t doing anything for the relationships in her life, Natalie with the help of Meg sets off on a mission to track down the hypnotist, hoping he can give her back the ability to lie again.
What ensues is chaos, panic and a lot of hilarity.
From the moment the cover and synopsis were released for Kirsty Greenwood’s debut novel on Kirsty’s website novelicious.com, I was looking forward to reading it.
And its definitely not a novel that disappoints, from the wonderful characters that are Natalie, Meg, Riley and Uncle Alan to the spiteful Honey and spoilt Jasper this book will have you laughing at the witty one liners which come more frequent than watching Peter Kay live at Blackpool Tower.
This really is a laugh out loud, feel good book and I TRULY believe that Kirsty Greenwood is an author to watch out for.
Yours Truly is more indulgent than a Sunday roast on a Saturday so get your copy now from the Kindle book store!
