Today I share my review for my stop on the blog tour for Adorable Fat Girl and the Mysterious Invitation by Bernice Bloom. This is the ninth book in the series and I previously reviewed Dairy of an Adorable Fat Girl. I have enjoyed the books in this series I have read, I need to read them all!
Mary Brown receives an invitation to a funeral. But she has absolutely no idea who the deceased is. She’s told that he invited her on his deathbed, and he’s very keen for her to attend, so she heads off to a dilapidated old farm house in a remote part of Wales. When she gets there she discovers that only five other people have been invited to the funeral. None of them knows who he is either.
NO ONE GOING TO THIS FUNERAL HAS EVER HEARD OF THE DECEASED. WHAT IS GOING ON??
Then they are told that they have 20 hours to work out why they have been invited in order to inherit a million pounds.
Who is this guy and why are they there? And what of the ghostly goings on in the ancient old building?
Featuring Mary Brown, star of the Adorable Fat Girl series of books, in her greatest adventure yet.
This is book nine in the series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book or as part of the series.

I had previously read and enjoyed Diary of an Adorable Fat Girl and jumped at the opportunity to read another ‘Fat Girl’ novel by Bernice Bloom! This is the ninth book in the series, though it could be read as a standalone. This one also has a genuine mystery to it! Mary receives notification to attend a funeral of a man she does not know and has never heard of. In fact, ALL of the people at the funeral do not know the deceased. No one knows what is going on and what will happen next. I really wanted to see how this was going to end, and it delivered!
There were two time periods in this novel: The past dealing with the deceased’s life and the present dealing with Mary and the others at the funeral. These two time periods come together to form a complete story. Once you know everything, it makes sense in a satisfying way.
This is an enjoyable read and there is a follow-up to Mysterious Invitation. I cannot wait to read it and see how the story continues! Be sure to read this series. You will love the “Adorable Fat Girl”!
About the Author:
My name is Bernice Bloom and I write funny novels about a crazy lady called Mary Brown in my ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ series.
Mary is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She’s also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can’t cross her legs and has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker it’s time to take action. But what action? She’s tried every diet under the sun.
This series is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins ‘Fat Club’ where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye.
The series follows Mary as she goes on safari, on a cruise, to a weekend yoga retreat and on an incredible adventure when she receives a mysterious invitation to a funeral.
The stories are laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in. xx
