This came out in May 2014.

Alison has also written three previous novels - Wag's Diary, A Wag Abroad, and Wags At The World Cup.

 

Alison Kervin a is an award-winning journalist, biographer and novelist. Her first novel was Wags Diary, in 2007, a book about super-Wag Tracie Martin and her extraordinary adventures with raccoon hair extensions and quilted Chanel bags. It was an instant best-seller...cover-mounted onto Glamour magazine where it reached an additional 750,000 readers.

Alison followed this with A Wag Abroad, which came out in August 2008. The second book in the series follows Tracie as she moves to Los Angeles and tries to befriend Posh Spice and introduce the locals to her unique brand of Wag styling. The third Wag book in the series was Wags At The World Cup - full of mishaps and catastrophes.

Alison also wrote Celebrity Bride, June 2009 (Hollywood Bride in ebook). The book is about a beautiful girl who meets and falls in love with a Hollywood superstar and becomes entangled in a bitter-sweet life in which she is hounded by the media, has girls throwing themselves at her boyfriend, and ends up being arrested for murder after an unfortunate incident with a Parisian stylist. It's a comedy with a dark twist in the middle!
