The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne

The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne

I love Brit Lit, and Hester Browne definitely delivers  in the first installment of her amazing trilogy. Do you refer to her as Melissa Romney-Jones or Honey Blennerhesket? Well, the best part is that Melissa and Honey are one in the same.

After getting laid off from work, Melissa takes her impeccable social skills and her reliable, sensible, organized, shy self, and starts her own business called The Little Lady Agency. After buying a blonde wig, she creates an alternate personality known as Honey Blennerhesket.

This bombshell wears the sexiest lingerie, curve hugging clothes, and has a super confident personality to match. Honey has her hands full acting as a pretend girlfriend, doling out advice, giving head-to-toe makeovers, helping break off relationships, and organizing the lives of many others, but manages to keep her personal life very separate from her work life.

Enter Jonathan Riley, a dashing American, who only knows Melissa by her alter ego, Honey. Jonathan’s frequent appointments with Honey threaten to bring down the wall between her personalities when Honey is booked to be Jonathan’s date to her own sister’s wedding. She agrees to be Jonathan’s date to the wedding, but who will she go as… Honey or Melissa?

Four words: Couldn’t Put It Down! While there are a lot of good, even great books, this book sits on top of the stack. Go buy this book. If you are low on cash, grab a digital copy. As always, follow the link to read the free Kindle sample of this book.

    That book sounds interesting, I think I’ll check it out! I’ve been looking for some new books to read this summer.

    Have you read Browne’s recent novel The Finishing Touches? I read that before Little Lady Agency and adored it. Couldn’t get as into Little Lady Agency as I did Finishing Touches (though I do want to give it another try), but you’d probably love it if you liked this one.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I am going to get the Kindle sample right now. I have a four day weekend, and this would be a great addition to my reading list.
