An Amazon No1 Best Seller! After Shirley Valentine, after The First Wives Club and hot on the naked heels of Calendar Girls… there was The New Mrs D!
‘Wine-spittingly, chocolate-chokingly brilliant! Hill is the Tom Sharpe of her era! Genuinely laugh out loud funny with great writing and a plot to keep you hooked. Buy it, read it – but if like me you are of a certain age, do so with an empty bladder." – Amanda Prowse, author
Four days into their honeymoon in Greece, Bernice and David Dando have yet to consummate their marriage and after having accepted his almost non-existent desire for sex throughout the relationship, Bernice finally discovers the reason; he is addicted to porn. Learning that the love of her life chooses the cheap thrill of fantasy over her is devastating but then, ‘every man does it; it’s just looking, right?’ If she leaves the relationship because of virtual adultery, will she be labelled as pathological, overreacting, or even worse, frigid?
When funny, feisty, forty-something Bernice plans the adventure trip of a lifetime, she doesn’t expect to be spending it alone. But as it turns out, unintentionally contributing to a Greek fish explosion, nude karaoke and hilarious misadventures with volcanoes are exactly what she needs to stop fretting about errant husbands and really start living. But when Mr D tries to win her back, Bernice has a decision to make: is this a holiday from her humdrum life, or the start of a whole new adventure?
"The New Mrs D is a refreshing, sharp-witted and empowering romp that reflects real life, delves into unspoken about subjects and slaps the reader in the face with honesty." Fleur Ferris, author
It is a story about one woman’s midlife awakening… on her honeymoon alone.

"Ms Hill whisks off to the Greek Islands for a colourful adventure. She takes us on a sensory journey where we soak up the hot sun, drink in the fragrant wine and cradle our temples as Binnie flings her flip flop at us from a speeding scooter" ”" Talesfromabruceeyeview
"the perfect setting for a hilarious update to Eat Pray Love" – Tara Gladden Cornerstones
‘This book would do well on your Kindle as a fairly light summer read with a little discussion of more serious issues. You can’t call this “chick lit” – it’s way better than that. Take a look.’ – AMAZON VINE VOICE REVIEW
˃˃˃ International Praise For The New Mrs D
‘Watch out Jane Green and Helen Fielding! There’s a new novelist from your side of the pond.’ – Annie McDonnell, Chick Lit Plus
The New Mrs D by Heather Hill had me laughing from page one. The book is so engaging that I stayed up all night to read it – I downloaded it at 10.30 pm and just kept reading. To say it grabbed me by the short and curlies is an understatement! I totally identified with Binnie and so "got it". Heather’s light, chatty writing style is refreshingly "real" and she has all the hallmarks of a truly great story teller.
This is a woman’s story. It’s hysterically funny, empowering and truthful.
I hope we see more excellent stories from Heather Hill – anyone who can make me laugh in the opening paragraph and maintain it, has my undivided attention. She’s a gifted author.
This book could so easily become a box office smash. I hope someone decides to make The New Mrs D into that film.
