I am excited to be on the blog tour today for the amusing The Mercury Travel Club by Helen Bridgett.
Genre: Romantic comedy, feel-good fiction
He took her to dinner: that was annoying
He slept with her: that was hurtful
He bought new underwear to impress her: quite frankly astounding
He left me to bloody wash his FILTHY WHORING PANTS: INFURIATING!
After twenty-four years and eleven months of marriage, Angie Shepherd is divorced, dejected and facing a future of cardigans and cats. Best friend Patty is having none of it, and launches Angie into a variety of crazy schemes in search of her lost mojo.
But it s just not enough; what she really dreams of is beating her ex and becoming Entrepreneur of the Year. Channelling her inner Richard Branson, Angie invests her divorce settlement into The Mercury Travel Club, a travel agency with a twist. But as the club gets going, things don’t go according to plan, and in this digital age, a little chaos brings the recognition Angie’s been looking for.
Witty, entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny, this feel-good novel shows that it’s never too late for a second chance.
Funny, heart-warming, and uplifting, this is a fun romantic comedy read.
Angie finds herself divorced and facing a crisis of confidence. But with a little help from her friends, second chances and success are just around the corner… maybe.
The writing was amusing, the dialogue witty, and the characters larger than life. Romantic comedy is actually very hard to get right, but this book manages to stay the right side of funny while also tackling some less-than-happy themes. One to remind you of the importance of friends giving you a kick every so often (when you deserve it) to re-discover your qualities.

About Helen Bridgett:
Helen Bridgett was born in North-East England and now lives in Manchester having stopped off at a few places in between. Having failed miserably with every New Year’s resolution that involved giving up food or drink, one year, she set herself a completely different goal – to write a novel and give it as a Christmas present. The Mercury Travel Club was born and the characters took on a life of their own. Outside of writing, Helen loves hiking and wine – not usually at the same time.
Helen is currently developing the next novels in The Mercury Travel Club series
