Simply Divine Summary

Simply Divine by Wendy Holden

Champagne D'Vyne is a celebrity socialite with a charmed life and a mania for men, money and fame. Jane is a twenty-something journalist with an ordinary life - man stress, work stress and a spare tyre that won't go away. As their contrasting worlds become bizarrely intertwined, Jane realises that the blonde, busty and blatantly ambitious Champagne will let nothing come between her and what she wants. Least of all Jane. Meanwhile, in a crumbling country manor in the West Country, everything's falling apart for Jane's best friend Tally. The family seat is collapsing - money's too tight to mansion - her brother the heir has gone AWOL and her mother's a New Age hippy with a Red Indian boyfriend called Big Horn. Tally desperately needs a rich and handsome husband to save her beloved ancestral home. Then Jane gets a brilliant new job. A knight on a gold chargecard turns up for Tally. Life finally looks blissful for both of them. But Champagne D'Vyne has other ideas...>

Simply Divine Reviews

There are some fabulous one-liners and Ab-Fab style send ups of the more ludicrous side of journalism. Great fun - Woman's Journal

It is rare, outside Wodehouse, that comic novels live up to their titles, but SIMPLY DIVINE is just that, to borrow from the Ab Fab critical lexicon. Wendy Holden writes a sort of profiterole prose, with paragraphs so funny and readable you worry about their calorie content - The Sunday Times

Just the thing if you need something frothy, frivolous, and fun - Harpers & Queen

Wickedly witty - Esquire

Literary equivalent of a post-Christmas-lunch box - Marie Claire

Well observed and witty - Mirror

You can't help but be entertained - Options

Witty, well-observed, with some jolly super, quite unforgivable, puns - bad heir
