Single Woman Seeks Revenge by Tracy Bloom

The Blurb:
Suzie Miller, a disillusioned agony aunt, can’t believe she’s been dumped from a great height yet again (this time by text, straight after they’ve had sex… twice!). So she decides the time is right to make every one of her exes feel the pain she felt when they carelessly cast her aside.

Her methods are unusual but humiliation on a grand scale is no less than they deserve.

Euphoric that she’s finally stood up for herself she starts suggesting outrageous ways for her readers to deal with their relationship nightmares too. Suddenly everyone wants Suzie’s advice. Finally content with being single and enjoying her blossoming career it seems as though happiness is within her grasp. That is until a man gets in the way.

Single Woman Seeks Revenge is a romantic comedy with a kick: a kick up the backside to any man who believes he got away with treating a woman badly and to any woman who doesn’t fight back.

What I think:
I feel in love with Tracy Bloom’s writing when I read No One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday last year, and I’m happy to say that I enjoyed Single Woman Seeks Revenge just as much.
The book starts by introducing us to Suzie Miller, an agony aunt for a local magazine, who has just been dumped, by text, by a work collegue that she was madly in love with. Sick of giving out rubbish advice, she decides that both the woman who write to her and she herself needs to get revenge on the men that are treating them badly.

With this in mind, Suzie sets out to meet up with any guy that has treated her badly in the past and finally get revenge on them. The book follows Suzie on her quest to get her own back on any man who has ever treated her badly, while also following her new column in the paper telling other woman how to get revenge on their men.

I loved No One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday and I Will Marry George Clooney (By Christmas), and I was delighted when I got my hands on this book. This book is written in typical Tracy Bloom style and had my laughing from the word go. I couldn’t put this book down once and started it and I absolutely flew through it, and was disappointed when it was over.

Each one of Tracy’s books is funnier than the next, and I look forward to reading from her very soon. Full of humour, this book is the perfect summer read.
4/5 stars
