Synopsis

'This book has given me life' Trish Hannon, reader review



This is a joyful, uplifting book to remind us how strong we are...no matter how pear-shaped life gets!







'Original, funny, moving and brutally honest...perfect for fans of Ruth Jones' Debbie Johnson





'This upbeat romance will leave you smiling' Daily Mirror

'So many women will find this book speaks to them. It makes you laugh and cry but it is truly inspiring' Katie Fforde

'Warm, moving and life-affirming...Greta is a gorgeous character that you will fall in love with' Sinead Moriarty





'Be more Greta' Woman's Way





Meet Greta.



She's funny.









She's flawed.









She's hiding so much behind her big smile she's forgotten who she is.









But Greta is about to discover that the key to being happy is...being yourself.







Greta Gale has played the part of the funny fat one her entire life, hiding her insecurities behind a big smile. But size doesn't matter when you can laugh at yourself, right?

Until Greta realises she's the only one not laughing. And deep down, she's not sure if she'll ever laugh again.





But Greta is about to discover that sometimes the best moments in life come when it's all gone a bit pear-shaped...





Everyone loves Greta:

'Poignant and profound, warm and witty, Carmel's brilliant writing invites us to look beyond the smiley face to the complex tangle of emotions inside us all. I absolutely adored it'

Sunday Times bestseller Cathy Bramley





'Warm, engrossing storytelling at its best'

Irish Times bestseller Sheila O'Flanagan





'I bloody loved it. Funnny, heart-wrenching and uplifting all in one'
