I fell in love with Mhairi (pron: Rayfe) McFarlane after reading her novel, IT’S NOT ME, IT’S YOU. Her books are chick-lit pee-your-panties-laugh-out-loud-funny, but know this, too: they’re not short! Be prepared to settle in for five-hundred plus-pages. It’ll go by fast, but you should know that upfront!
In WHO’S THAT GIRL (Harper), Edie’s a 31-year-old woman working in a busy modern office who is great friends with her boss. He invites her to his wedding and she finds herself kissing him in front of the wife and all the attendees. Edie’s quickly labeled a marriage wrecker ,”the other woman,” bullied on social media and forced to take a leave from work.
“He’s an irrelevant person. Learn to spot irrelevant people. Don’t expect someone who doesn’t know who they are to care about who you are.”
Edie finds herself ghostwriting an autobiography for a spoiled hot new actor, moving home with her dad and loser sister and basically regressing. She hardly recognizes herself. Edie feels as if the world is challenging her, asking her, “who’s that girl?”
Once again Mhairi creates a fully developed character in Edie, with just the right amount of vulnerability, with her unique gift of twisted humor and self-deprecation. Mhairi has written another bestseller in WHO’S THAT GIRL? that you don’t want to miss. .
Mhairi was born in Scotland in 1976 and has been explaining how to pronounce her name ever since. She is based in Nottingham where she used to be a local journalist and now she’s a freelance writer and sometime-blogger, which we all know is code for messing about on Twitter.She lives with a man and a cat.
