Review: Adorable Fat Girl and the Mysterious Invitation

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 knows who he is either.


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.

This is BOOK NINE in the series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book or as part of the series.


 This book was so funny! A worthy protagonist embarks on an Agatha Christie style mystery. But where murder followed the infamous AC post-death party, this mysterious invitation leads to hijinx and laughs (and some twisty plot turns).

The protagonist here is the main selling point. Mary is happy with herself and her food. None of that fat-girl unpleasantness we’ve endured with other overweight protagonists. Mary is fine with herself, her boyfriend loves her and her parents want what’s best for her. Of course, she still had to be the “adorable fat girl” because every overweight woman knows that you need an apologetic adjective to be allowed a moment in the spotlight. 

Overall, the book was a delightful read on a Sunday night. I’ll be picking up more books about Mary. She’s on her way to being a favorite.

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 My website is: www.bernicebloom.com Social Media Links –
