Mary Brown receives an invitation to a funeral. But she has absolutely no idea who the deceased is. She’s told that he invited her on his deathbed, and he’s very keen for her to attend, so she heads off to a dilapidated old farm house in a remote part of Wales. When she gets there she discovers that only five other people have been invited to the funeral. None of them knows who he is either.
NO ONE GOING TO THIS FUNERAL HAS EVER HEARD OF THE DECEASED. WHAT IS GOING ON??
Then they are told that they have 20 hours to work out why they have been invited in order to inherit a million pounds.
Who is this guy and why are they there? And what of the ghostly goings on in the ancient old building?
Featuring Mary Brown, star of the Adorable Fat Girl series of books, in her greatest adventure yet.
This is BOOK NINE in the series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book or as part of the series.
I have read a few books now in this series and really enjoyed them so I jumped at the chance to be able to get my hands on a copy of Adorable Fat Girl & the Mysterious Invitation and I have to say it was a thoroughly enjoyable story!
Mary is a fabulous character and being a larger girl myself I can really sympathise with some of her actions and what she does, although I don’t have quite so much food stashed everywhere, honest!
I loved the background to the story and it was lovely getting to see Reginald’s story unfold and the different characters he met along the way, he was a brilliant character and the author really brought his personality to life with the story and it did make me think how one act can change your life forever on so many different levels.
I was really pleased with the ending and they made the right choice – that’s a cryptic comment for you there!
Four stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed it and it was good catching back up with Mary! Not as light-hearted as the other books I have read in the story but still quite a few bits that made me chuckle – highly recommended!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Bernice Bloom and I write funny novels about a crazy lady called Mary Brown in my ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ series.
Mary is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She’s also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can’t cross her legs and has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker it’s time to take action. But what action? She’s tried every diet under the sun.
This series is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins ‘Fat Club’ where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye.
The series follows Mary as she goes on safari, on a cruise, to a weekend yoga retreat and on an incredible adventure when she receives a mysterious invitation to a funeral.
The stories are laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in. xx
