Happy Sunday bibliophile’s! and Happy 21st Birthday to my daughter!
Super excited to share with you today my review for this adorable book from an equally adorable series it looks like! Many thanks to Rachel, who probably is basking in the sun on vacation, and to Bernice Bloom for her adorable story!💕❄️
Mary Brown receives an invitation to a funeral. But she has absolutely no idea who the deceased is. She’s told that he invited her on his deathbed, and he’s very keen for her to attend, so she heads off to a dilapidated old farm house in a remote part of Wales. When she gets there she discovers that only five other people have been invited to the funeral. None of them knows who he is either.
NO ONE GOING TO THIS FUNERAL HAS EVER HEARD OF THE DECEASED. WHAT IS GOING ON??
Then they are told that they have 20 hours to work out why they have been invited in order to inherit a million pounds.
Who is this guy and why are they there? And what of the ghostly goings on in the ancient old building?
Featuring Mary Brown, star of the Adorable Fat Girl series of books, in her greatest adventure yet.
This is BOOK NINE in the series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book or as part of the series.
Author Bio –
My name is Bernice Bloom and I write funny novels about a crazy lady called Mary Brown in my ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ series.
Mary is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She’s also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can’t cross her legs and has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker it’s time to take action. But what action? She’s tried every diet under the sun.
This series is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins ‘Fat Club’ where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye.
The series follows Mary as she goes on safari, on a cruise, to a weekend yoga retreat and on an incredible adventure when she receives a mysterious invitation to a funeral.
The stories are laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in. xx
A little sass and fun mixed with a little mystery and history!
This book was simply adorable! This was my first introduction to Mary Brown and the ninth book in the series and I was not lost at all! Can definitely be read as a standalone… however I’d venture to guess after reading this book you’ll want to go and pick them all up, I know I do….“The Adorable Fat Girl “series has a new fan!
Mary Brown receives an invitation to a funeral the problem is? She has no idea who the deceased is, and why he would want her at his funeral… when she arrives at the funeral in an isolated village in Wales she meets the other six people who were invited to the funeral… only six people and none of them know the deceased, Reginald Charters… The six of them soon find out that they will inherit 1,000,000 pounds, however there is a catch!
The story is told in duel timelines because we also get the story of Reginald Charters starting in the 1940s…. I found this story extremely interesting and very well researched! The historical part of the story had a much more somber tone than that of the present day story, but I thought it was a really nice balance…. it was like the historical part was in black-and-white and the present day was in color…
Mary was such a fun self deprecating character with a wonderful sense of humor… The rest of the cast of characters were quirky, intriguing, and well developed… and bonus at the end of the book we find out there will be another book including all these wonderful characters! I’m really looking forward to many more books in the series and getting to know Mary better…
Absolutely encourage you to add this to your TBR list! It is quite adorable!
