"Get beach ready this summer with a
FREE spray tan."
I can't decide. It is tacky. But I do think there is demographic overlap between women who read chick-lit and women who want spray tans.
[edited on March 30: Just to clarify: I don't spray tan. In fact I don't tan at all. I'm Irish and hence am covered in freckles.]
Regardless, the sticker caught my eye and I checked Tilly Bagshawe's Scandalous out of the library. It was a good, fast read. In some respects this was like a Danielle Steele novel. But with a plot. And authentic characters. And realistic dialogue. And sex scenes that didn't make me cringe (too much). So...pretty much nothing at all like a Danielle Steele book. Well, except for the last five pages when all the storylines were tied up (a bit too) neatly and the protagonists found EVERLASTING LOVE™.

Here's a close up of the fine print at the back of the book. Sadly the offer has expired. I am doomed to be pasty white whilst I read my chick lit novels.
