This one made me laugh but I think it is far from the best of her novels.
The protagonist Jay works her way through a selection of diet options whilst awaiting the imminent return of her cousin Delphine from
. Jay lives in a chaotic household with her husband three children and almost son in law. She owns together with a friend, a successful cleaning company. Australia
Jay has always been envious of Delphine, not just her thinness but the fact that she was the indulged daughter who had everything she could ever want as a child. Having lived in
for many years Delphine is returning to the Australia to marry her third husband. It is the imminent return of her perfect cousin that makes Jay decide that she will diet and become more like her, well organised and most importantly thin! She tries them all High Carb, No Protein,High Protein, No Carb, High Fibre, Wheat Free, Fat Free, Grapefruit, Atkins, Conley and so on, with a variety of successes and failures. UK
This novel might not have much going for it as a story but what it does provide is well written humour.
