I was feeling a little bit down at the weekend so to cheer myself up I turned to The Nothing Girl by Jodi Taylor. I read it a year or so ago but had forgotten just how great it is. I had intended just to read the odd couple of pages but once I started I couldn’t stop and ended up reading the whole thing from start to finish. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me smile (a lot) but mostly it just made me feel all warm and fuzzy so I had to use it for this weeks teaser.
Weddings are a long, rain-drenched nightmare when the only sounds are your relatives venomously hissing in dark corners. I don’t know how anyone who doesn’t have a giant, golden horse gets through them.

If you like books with eccentric characters, romance, a tiny bit of mystery and lots of animals (including an imaginary/guardian angel horse called Thomas) I’d definitely recommend.
Happy reading everyone.
