Fast-paced, wickedly funny and full of zest, this is popular columnist Sarah-Kate Lynch's debut novel, the first of a string of works that will make you cry and laugh out loud.

Molly Brown is having what you might call a shit day. Her wedding dress has just revealed it can't contain more than one bosom and the gorgeous man she was about to marry has just revealed that more than one is his favourite number too. If you're talking about women, that is.

In a desperate bid to escape her life as it horribly unravels before her eyes, Molly escapes to the other side of the world with her $4000 wedding dress and her terrifying aunt Vivian. She embarks on a rollercoaster ride through the Irish countryside in search of her long-lost uncle. When she arrives in the seemingly sleepy seaside town of Ballymahoe, she has greasy hair, a fractured arm, a broken heart, three extra kilos and no time at all for the charm of the locals . . .

About the Author

Sarah-Kate Lynch

Sarah-Kate Lynch is a novelist and editor, and has also worked as a journalist, radio presenter and columnist. She has published many hugely popular novels, plus memoir and non-fiction. She reviews, has hosted magazine book clubs, and writes two columns for Woman’s Day.

Sarah-Kate's novels include: The Wedding Bees, Dolci di Love, On Top of Everything, The House of Peine, Eating with the Angels, By Bread Alone, Blessed Are the Cheesemakers, and her first novel published in 2000, Finding Tom Connor. Her non-fiction work includes a collection of columns, The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life (2002). Her memoir, Stuff It! A Wicked Approach to Dieting, she has described as ‘inspired by reading Ellen Degeneres and Fran Drescher's half nonsensical memoirs’. In 2014 she resumed her 'Wicked Approach' series with the hilarious Screw You Dolores: A Wicked Approach to Happiness. More are planned.

The Sunday Star-Times wrote of By Bread Alone, ‘Witty, charming, faithfully passionate to its subject and emotionally adept. If only this book was a man.’ In The New Zealand Herald, Margie Thomson wrote: ‘Her plots buzz along . . . , her characters spring recognisably to life, she’s extremely lively and funny . . . especially when she’s skewering the world of social flim-flam, but with a feel for language that results in some lovely imagery and, in this latest novel, genuine poignancy.’

Next magazine found Finding Tom Connor a ‘cross between Bridget Jones’s Diary and Waking Ned Devine, this is a romantic and rollicking good read’. The Dominion Post concluded of The House of Peine, which is set in a chateau and vineyard in the Champagne region of France: ‘Impeccably researched, it reads like a dream.’

Sarah-Kate lives with her husband and her dog, but she’s often not sure where — and she likes it that way. See more at www.sarah-katelynch.com. She is also on Twitter and Facebook.
