Awful by Comparison by Patricia Caliskan
Bridget Jones meets Love Actually – Holly Kinsella.
Receiving five star reviews, Awful by Comparison (Endeavour Press) is a hilariously funny and wonderfully observed romcom hailed as Bridget Jones meets Love Actually.
Jennifer Taylor is home for the holidays – and the foreseeable future – as she loses her job, apartment and boyfriend, one month before Christmas. Her sister, Lara, a beautiful NYC-based model, is also coming home – to announce a whirlwind engagement to a rich hotelier.
But when an anonymous blog hits the headlines, the sisters find themselves at the centre of a dark secret which will change their family forever.
Will Jennifer ever learn to live in the shadow of her sister’s success – preferably with a full-time job and a drawer full of matching underwear?
Can Lara ever find happiness in a world where appearances can be deceptive, and men usually are?
Sisters, friends and finances – sometimes a girl feels Awful By Comparison.
