A brilliantly warm and funny novel about what happens when an overweight bride-to-be resorts to desperate measures in the run-up to her wedding day.
Alison Sherlock enjoyed reading and writing stories from an early age. However, she assumed that being an author didn't count as a proper job so when Alison grew up, she worked as a secretary, training administrator and answered an IT hotline. Once older and a bit wiser, she realised that she really had to write her novel. So she gave up offi ce life to sit at home and panic at what she had done. To fund her dream, Alison became a cleaner, the experience of which she has used for her second novel. A chance meeting with a literary agent at Winchester Writers' Conference set her on the road to publication. This is her first book. Alison lives in Surrey with her husband Dave and Harry, their daft golden retriever. You can follow her on twitter - @alisonsherlock - and facebook.

Looks set to be a fantastic read * Trashionista.com *
a lovely debut novel from Alison Sherlock, and it certainly makes me want to look out for more of her books in the future... I'd recommend giving The Desperate Bride's Diet Club a read - it's a lovely and well written novel... it is an enjoyable read, and so recommended by me * chicklitchloe *
I laughed and cringed reading this story and found it a very relaxing read. Chick lit at its best * No1 Magazine *
