Never the Bride Summary

Never the Bride by Paul Magrs

Brenda has had a long and eventful life and she has come to Whitby to run a B&B in search of some peace and quiet. She and her best friend Effie like nothing better than going out for tea at the Walrus and the Carpenter or dinner at Cod Almighty and keeping their eyes open for any of the mysterious goings on in town. And what with satanic beauty salons, more than illegal aliens, roving psychic investigators and the frankly terrifying owner of the Christmas Hotel there are no shortage of nefarious shenanigans to keep them interested. But the oddest thing in Whitby may well be Brenda herself. With her terrible scars, her strange lack of a surname or the fact that she takes two different shoe sizes, Brenda should have known that people as, well, unique as she is, just aren't destined for a quiet life. >

Never the Bride Reviews

'NTB is a brilliant extravaganza, gripping, ingeniously plotted, and tragically funny, with unforgettable characters. PM is an original talent with a wonderful and sympathetic ear and eye for the hidden craziness of contemporary life. This book deserves to be widely read, enjoyed and garlanded with praise' Shena Mackay -- Shena Mackay 'I wasn't at all sure I'd read it as I didn't think it would be my thing. I imagined I'd skim through the first few pages, have my doubts confirmed and put it to one side. But...I was wrong! Instead, I have spent the weekend ignoring my family and absolutely racing through the book. It is wonderful, I love it and really hope there will be sequels starring Brenda, whom I love to bits. Many congratulations on having written such a fab book, it deserves to be a huge success' -- Jill Mansell 'An absolutely delicious black comedy! quirky, idiosyncratic, wildly funny ' -- Susan Hill 'NTB is a cornucopia of playfully sinister delights. Funny, poignant, clever and hugely original. I loved it' -- Daren King
