Looking for La La - Ellie Campbell (2013)

When a postcard arrives for Cathy's husband, Declan, with love from La La, she wonders if he's having an affair. But rather than being annoyed, Cathy's excited. Now the stay-at-home mum has got a mystery to investigate - who exactly is La La and what is her relationship to her husband? Cathy has numerous suspects in mind, including his sickeningly helpful assistant Jessica-Ellen. But why is a red car following her everywhere and why is her best friend's sexy new squeeze, Rupert, turning up all the time? This is a really fun read, with a fab self-absorbed heroine, lots of witty lines and a mystery to keep you guessing.

Looking for La La, by Ellie Campbell, is about a woman who discovers someone is mailing love postcards to her husband. The summary says: "In a recent survey 65% of mothers admitted feeling undervalued, over-criticised and constantly tired. Cathy is no exception. Her dull, uneventful days as a stay-at-home, mother of two, are radically transformed however with the arrival of a heavily lipsticked postcard addressed to husband, Declan. Who is the mysterious La La? Could Declan really be having an affair? And is Cathy actually being stalked? Whatever - it will definitely prove riveting gossip for the Tuesday Twice Monthlies, Cathy's 'Mothers Restaurant Research' group where scandal flows as recklessly as the wine. But what starts as a light-hearted investigation with best friend Raz, soon turns into something much more sinister. With a possible murderer on the scene, a sexy admirer igniting long-forgotten sparks, and all her friends hiding secrets, it's not only Cathy's marriage that's in jeopardy. Add in the scheming antics of Declan's new assistant, the stress of organising the school Save The Toilet's dance and the stage is set for a dangerous showdown and some very unsettling, possibly deadly, revelations.'
