"Behaving Badly"

First off - I loved this book! I don't read 'chick-lit' very often so it was nice to read a light, easy, cosy book.

The story is about a woman who has just split with her partner and has set up an animal psycho-therapy clinic in her home where she helps people and their animals overcome their problems - which are usually quite funny! Isabel Wolff doesn't waste time on lots of description which can get on my nerves, (who cares about the exact colour of the sky? I don't need a whole page telling me!) and put me off reading a book.

The main character has a deep, dark secret and tries to make amends which lead to finding love in an unpredictable and lovely way. I recommend it to everyone and look forward to reading more by the same author.

Product Information : Behaving Badly - Isabel Wolff

Manufacturer's product description

The fifth novel from the hugely entertaining writer of RESUING ROSE. Stylishly written, sophisticated but warmhearted and accessible, this is Isabel Wolff at her inimitable best. All men are beasts! !or so Miranda Sweet believes. As an animal behaviourist, she's good at understanding aggressive Airedales and irritated iguanas, but she can't understand why the men in her life have always behaved so badly. Especially Alex, her ex-fiance and the biggest let-down of her romantic career. In Miranda's opinion, animals are braver, kinder and a lot more reliable. So she's given up on love to open her own clinic and work her magic on neurotic pets and their anxious owners. Can Miranda keep the whole male species at bay for ever? Her best friend, Daisy, an incurably romantic wedding-planner, doesn't think so, and when a delicious photographer comes into her life, even Miranda starts to wonder if she's been a bit hasty. But, just when she's letting her guard down, her past starts to catch up with her and she has to turn her expert eye on her own behaviour, which hasn't always been as sweet as she'd like to pretend!
