AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Merridy Eastman's been ditched by her builder boyfriend for a waitress named Nancy, but everyone seems to think she'll find Mr Right very soon. In England, to be specific, where she will be spending three months on her wacky sister's sofa bed.

'The age-old tale of Australians trying to make it in the UK gets a new twist as Merridy encounters the class, culinary, cultural and communication eccentricities of the English. Will Merridy find her prince at last, or does she have ridiculous expectations of men? Are English men really any different to Aussie blokes? Should she hold out for true love? And will her family ever behave like normal people?

'This is real life chick lit for grown-up girls with all the characteristic humour and compassion that made There's a Bear in There such a hit. Does Merridy find her prince? You'll have to read on ...' (Publication summary)
