The Secret Life Of Evie Hamilton




A stunning reissue of the Number One bestseller's hilarious romantic comedy.

Catherine Alliott, bestselling author of One Day in May and A Crowded Marriage, takes a heart-warming look at what happens when your whole world is turned upside-down in The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton.



Evie Hamilton has a secret . . . one she doesn't even know about. Yet . . .



Evie's an Oxfordshire wife and mum who's biggest worry in life is whether or not she can fit in a manicure on her way to fetch her daughter from clarinet lessons. But she's blissfully unaware that her charmed and happy life is about to be turned upside-down.



For one sunny morning a letter lands on Evie's immaculate doormat. It's a bombshell, knocking her carefully arranged and managed world completely askew and it threatens to sabotage all she holds dear.



What will be left and what will change forever? Is Evie strong enough to fight for what she loves? Can her entire world really be as fragile as her best china?



Step into Alliott country with The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton.

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.
