Nick Spalding has fast become a favourite author of mine. His books have the ultimate belly-laugh factor and if you’re yet to read his Love…series then I can’t recommend enough that you do, they are so unusual from your ‘typical romance’ novels & I can’t imagine anyone not loving them. (check them out on Amazon here) Nick is a fantastic writer; his books definitely have that ‘special something’ for me. His characters are amazing and storylines realistic, yet hilarious.
So, naturally when I heard about his latest release, Fat Chance (out on 7th October published by Lake Union Publishing, pre-order here) I was one very excited reader. It sounds funny, clever and all-too real. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself and try to resist pre-ordering…
Meet Zoe and Greg Milton, a married couple who have let themselves go a bit.
Zoe was a stunner in her college days, but the intervening decades have added five stone, and removed most of her self-esteem. Greg’s rugby-playing days are well and truly behind him, thanks to countless pints of beer and chicken curry.
When Elise, a radio DJ and Zoe’s best friend, tells them about a new competition, it seems like the perfect opportunity to turn their lives around. Fat Chance will pit six hefty couples against one another to see who can collectively lose the most weight and walk away with a £50,000 prize.
