9780006513407: The Making of Minty Malone

The sparkling new romantic comedy novel by the author of THE TRIALS OF TIFFANY TROTT. Everyone likes radio reporter Minty -- she's so terribly nice. But being nice doesn't save her from being jilted at the very altar by her attractive but domineering fiance Dominic. Ditched rather than hitched, a shocked Minty takes stock, and, on her husbandless honeymoon, she vows to become just a little less 'nice'. Joined by her fiery cousin Amber, whom no one could describe as sweet-natured, Minty sets out on a Quest for the Self, in which she will finally learn how to say 'No'. But Dominic's devastating desertion has left her with an unhealed wound. For if the man she loved could do that to her, then how can any man be trusted? But then Minty stumbles upon the real reason for Dominic's dreadful defection. Faced with the ugly truth, she prepares to move on, let go, and learn how to say 'Yes' once more.

About the Author:

Isabel Wolff is a trained actress and radio journalist who has built a strong career as a freelance journalist of radio, television and print. THE TRIALS OF TIFFANY TROTT was her brilliantly successful first novel.

From Publishers Weekly:

From the author of The Trials of Tiffany Trott comes an amusing tale about Minty Malone's year-long recovery after being jilted at the altar by her insurance salesman fianc?, the self-righteous Dominic. Determined to overcome the "Dominic Effect," Minty, a London radio reporter, gives her engagement ring to a street musician, takes off on a Paris honeymoon with her bridesmaid, and enrolls in a seminar on how not to be so helplessly nice that everyone takes advantage of her. Minty's workplace (in which she must compete with a lisping coworker for the job of presenter and fend off letters from a stalker) and home life (where cousin Amber and her obnoxious parrot have just moved in) prove to be fertile settings for the author's unwavering sense of humor and offhand wit. Wolff's talent for outrageous characters, like Minty's hopeless, "philanthropoholic" mother who supports such charities as the Canine Prosthetics Association, and the Boys'R'Us male escort who can't quit discussing his bowel problems, more than makes up for the novel's sappy ending.
