Aloha to Michele Gorman and THE CURVY GIRLS CLUB - UK Release

UK Digital Cover

Michele Gorman is the USA TODAY bestselling author of eight romantic comedies. Born and raised in the US, Michele has lived in London for 16 years. She is very fond of naps, ice cream and Richard Curtis films but objects to spiders and the word "portion".

UK Paperback Cover

Last year, I reviewed the US release of THE CURVY GIRLS CLUB:

A hilarious, heart-warming read about normal women who decide to ditch the weighing scales and love themselves just the way they are.  Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Bridesmaids.

Can the curvy girls have their cake and eat it?

Meet best friends Pixie, Ellie, Katie and Jane. Fed up with always struggling to lose weight, they start a social club where size doesn’t matter. Soon it’s the most popular place to be – having fun instead of counting carbs. And the girls suddenly find their lives changing in ways they never imagined.

But outside the club, things aren’t as rosy, as they struggle with the ups and downs of everyday life.

In this funny, heart-warming read about normal women learning to love themselves, the curvy girls soon realise that no matter what life throws at them, together, anything is possible . . .

  8. I too like the second one - the light blue cover with all the ladies and the pie.

  9. I like the first one with the ladies and cake. The second one reminds me too much of the 70's fridge's that had no auto defrost freezers.

  10. I like the UK Digital cover, tho the UK Print cover is a close second

  11. I like the UK cover with the ladies and cake on it.

  12. I like the UK paperback cover.
