Poppy Wellesley is rich. In fact Poppy Wellesley is very rich, so when her fortunes change from riches to rags Poppy has to start a whole new life. Put yourself in her Guccis as she swaps her penthouse apartment for a run-down houseboat on Regent’s Canal. Meet her dippy friend Chelsea, the infamous Jack Diamond (see The Dog’s Bollocks) and her hunky boat neighbour, Taylor. Will Poppy hold on to her millionaire fiancé or will Pug-face Pandora steal him from her? Can she avoid the advances from Balls (Lord Balthazar Wyndham-Price) or does she find true love on the canal? Fudge Berries and Frogs’ Knickers is a romantic comedy roller coaster ride that will put a smile on your face and a cheer in your heart.
I have read many of Lynda Renham’s books. This is by far my favorite so far. Instead of being your typical rags to riches story, this is the exact opposite. Can you imagine living in a high rent area then being forced to live on a boat (not a yacht)? I loved the twist and it not being the same ole same ole story.
The characters made me laugh, the dialogues had made me giggling, and the entire story made me smile. Taylor is my favorite character. He is kept such a secret in the story. Lynda keeps him mysterious and sexy. I love how he just sweeps in and saves Poppy so many times, yet Poppy doesn’t see him as anything but a savior for the longest time. I also love how Taylor realizes Poppy is a little (okay a lot) into herself and doesn’t hold that against her. Then there is Chelsea. She came across to me as the ditzy friend. She opens her mouth without thinking, sticks her nose into everyone’s issues, yet everyone loves her.
If you are looking for a fun and easy read Fudge Berries and Frog Knickers is what you are looking for. This is the perfect book.
