This week I read Yours Truly by Kirsty Greenwood, mainly because of Jennie's review that seriously piqued my interest.
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...
This book is definitely pure amusing chick lit that was slightly predictable, yet still enjoyable with a few twists that I wasn't expecting at all. I agree with Jennie in that I really wanted to slap some sense into Natalie at first, but after the hypnosis incident she becomes less of a boring pushover, because, well, she's hypotized and can't lie when asked a direct question. Some of the answers she spouts out are pretty hilarious, especially at the expense of her poor unsuspecting fiance. If you want a quick, easy read and a good chuckle, this book is for you.
