Extract from ‘Handcuffs, Truncheon and a Polyester Thong’ by Gina Kirkham
I hope you all enjoyed Gina Kirkham’s guest post as much as I did. I love Gina’s posts and I really can’t wait to read her book when it comes out. It’s time for a treat now, an exclusive extract from ‘Handcuffs, Truncheon and a Polyester Thong’. But first, the book blurb.
Meet Mavis Upton. As mummy to 7-year old Ella, surrogate to far too many pets and with a failed marriage under her belt, Mavis knows she needs to make some life-changing decisions. It’s time to strike out into the world, to stand on her own two feet … to pursue a lifelong ambition to become a Police Officer. I mean, what could go wrong? Supported by her quirky, malapropism-suffering mum, Mavis throws herself headlong into a world of uncertainty, self-discovery, fearless escapades, laughter and extra-large knickers. And using her newly discovered investigative skills, she reluctantly embarks on a search to find her errant dad who was last seen years before, making off with her mum’s much needed coupon for a fabulous foam cup bra all the way from America. Follow Mavis as she tackles everything life can throw at her, and revel in Gina Kirkham’s humorous, poignant and moving story of an everyday girl who one day followed a dream.
