BOOK NEWS: The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance by Kirsty Greenwood

The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance is the next novel from Kirsty Greenwood, author of Yours Truly, and the founder of fab chick-lit website Novelicious.com. (And isn't the cover gorgeous?) Party girl Jess is forced to get help from her grandmother Matilda, who's also having a hard time. Until Matilda's 1950s life-guides give them both the opportunity they need...

Jessica Beam is a girl who knows how to party. Only lately she's been forgetting to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Down on her luck, out of a job and homeless, Jess seeks the help of her long-lost grandmother.

Things aren't going well for Matilda Beam, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage repayments are staggering and her granddaughter wears neon Wonderbras.
When a lifeline from a London publisher arrives, the pair have an opportunity to secure the roof over their heads - by invigorating the Good Woman guides and transforming modern, rebellious Jess into a demure vintage lady.

The true test of their make-over will be to capture the heart of notorious London playboy Leo Frost and prove that Matilda's guides still work. It's going to take commitment, nerves of steel and one seriously pointy bra to pull this off . . .
