writes comic novels under the pseudonym of Jemma Harvey
My second romantic comedy, set in the world of makeover TV. A gardening
show go on location in a Scottish castle owned by an ageing rock
star to make a series in which they have to not only fix up the rockery
but re-plant a maze which is cursed and re-enact scenes from the
dodgy past of former lairds. My two heroines – a long-suffering
producer with a star-crossed love-life and a C-list celeb with an
over-developed ego and a spoiled fiancé – have to deal
with eccentric staff, skeletons in the closet and ghosts in the machine,
while failing to sort out their own lives at the same time.
the packaging, which looks like something from Accessorise, this is a
very cynical view of the media world, with some romance thrown
in. I liked it a lot – as did both the Sun and the Independent.
