Jessica Beam is a girl who knows how to party. Only lately she's been forgetting to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Down on her luck, out of a job and homeless, Jess seeks the help of her long-lost grandmother.
Things aren't going well for Matilda Beam, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage repayments are staggering and her granddaughter wears neon Wonderbras.
When a lifeline from a London publisher arrives, the pair have an opportunity to secure the roof over their heads - by invigorating the Good Woman guides and transforming modern, rebellious Jess into a demure vintage lady.
The true test of their make-over will be to capture the heart of notorious London playboy Leo Frost and prove that Matilda's guides still work. It's going to take commitment, nerves of steel and one seriously pointy bra to pull this off . . .
Imagine if there was really a guide that worked for the modern-day girl to capture her knight in shining armour.
This book paints a picture of how it possibly could work by using old fashioned methods to get the man. It is an easy, fun read and can definitely apply to women of all ages who are in the market for a good man. I love how the generations are brought together with the advice from Jessica's grandmother that newfound relationship ultimately helps her to understand her flaws and enable her to grow up at the same time. There is also the friendship that Jessica finds along the way which is simply surprising and lovely.
