And just in time for summer comes the second book by New Zealand's latest Queen of Chick Lit. Michelle Holman has followed up her hilariously successful first novel Bonkers with the equally funny romance Divine.
The plot follows Tara Whitehead whose husband leaves her - because he wants to be a she. Tara and her daughter escape from Auckland society to the rural Waikato town called Divine. Here Tara indulges her shoe fetish with floral gumboots, learns the true meaning of strip grazing and meets a whole herd of easily recognisable characters. It is light hearted, witty and often had me chuckling out loud.
