The New Mrs D: An Hilarious, Uplifting, Anti-Romantic Comedy

by Heather Hill  

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.

˃˃˃ Praise For The New Mrs D

"A very funny and touching book from a brilliant new voice in women’s fiction.” – Jon Rance, author

"Heather Hill is a very funny lady." – Ben Hatch, author

"…a humorous and cleverly written story with characters that jump off the page and a plot that will keep you engaged until the last page." – Lisa O’Meary, Chick Lit Club

"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.
