Not That Kind Of Girl




Catherine Alliott, bestselling author of A Rural Affair and A Crowded Marriage, examines just the sort of trouble a girl can land herself in when she gets caught in the middle of a love triangle in Not That Kind of Girl.

A girl can get into all kinds of trouble just by going back to work . . .

Henrietta Tate gave up everything for her husband Marcus and their kids. But now that the children are away at school and she's rattling round their large country house all day she's feeling more than a little lost.

So when a friend puts her in touch with Laurie, a historian in need of a PA, Henrietta heads for London. Quickly, she throws herself into the job. Marcus is - of course - jealous of her spending so much time with her charming new boss. And soon enough her absence causes cracks to form in their marriage that just can't be papered over.

Then Rupert, a very old flame, reappears, and Henrietta suddenly finds herself torn between three men. How did this happen? She's not that kind of girl . . . is she?

Step into Alliott country with Not That Kind of Girl.

About the author

Catherine Alliott

Catherine Alliott started her first novel under the desk when she worked as an advertising copywriter. She was duly fired. With time on her hands she persevereed with the novels, which happily flourished. In the early days, she produced a baby with each book, but after three stuck to the writing as it was less painful. She writes with the nearest pen in exercise books, either in the garden or on a sofa. Home is a rural spot on the Herts/Bucks borders which she shares with her family and a menagerie of horses, cows, chickens and dogs, which at the last count totalled thirty-four beating hearts, including her husband. Some of her household have walk-on parts in her novels, but only the chickens would probably recognise themselves. The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton is her tenth book and first for Penguin.

Additional information:- She's scared of computers.- She's hopeless at reversing but always leaves a note.- She's better than she looks at tennis.
