BOOK NINE in the series – 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 know 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.
Even though this is the ninth book in the series, I think it works well as a stand alone, though I do recommend reading the previous books as it’s an absolute pleasure getting to know Mary.
This book was very different to the others in the series as it flicks between present day and the past, where we get to meet and find out more about the deceased. In present day, we get to meet the people who have been summoned to attend the funeral.
Even though it was slightly more sombre to previous books I have read in the series, this was still a fantastic read that I couldn’t put down. It still has all the tell, tell signs of the authors brilliant writing skills, making it a heart warming and endearing page turner.
Adorable Fat Girl and the Mysterious invitation is a great addition to this must read series. The author keeps it fresh and appealing and I really can’t get enough of her books. This is such a compelling read that you just have to read it in one go. There are always some likeable and not so likeable characters and as usual, I very much loved getting to know them all. Really can not recommend this series highly enough, I would go so far to say, that they should be made to be compulsive reading as I guarantee people will love them.

Author Bio –
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
