The blurb:

From the bestselling author of No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday ... Another very funny romantic novel.

What do you do when you find your love-life in ruins? Get revenge on every man who ever broke your heart of course....

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.

My review:

I am a big fan of Tracy Bloom. Her books are filled with humour and a very enjoyable read. Single Woman Seeks Revenge is no exception and I raced through it in no time.

Single Woman Seeks Revenge tells the story of Suzie who works as an agony aunt in a magazine. But her love life leaves a lot of be desired after she has been unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend. Not only that but she has to work with him too which makes things even more uncomfortable.

Suzie decides that the time has come to avenge her ex's. She plots how to go about getting her own back, and  after successfully making a fool of one she is on a roll. The attitude also infiltrates into her agony aunt column, where she gives advice to others on how to take revenge, and not be a push over.

The book is very funny, and this made it a real page turner for me. Chapters flew by as I followed her plans for revenge, and at some points I found myself pondering what I would do in her situation, which made me laugh even more!

I love Tracy's style of writing. I find it very easy to become absorbed quickly. She has a great sense of humour, whilst not being too outlandish. Her characters are full of verve and sassiness. As in her other books, the main female character is strong and vivacious. I got a real sense of girl power!

For a read that will make you laugh, remember romance, and leave you feeling empowered grab this book!

Thanks to Random House Cornerstone for providing a copy in return for an honest review.
