The deal was struck by Eve White at the Eve White Literary Agency and the book will be published by Orion in the summer of 2010. Yvette Goulden said: &quot;I read this with a smile on my face. I just loved it, so I bought it.&rdquo;<br />&nbsp;<br />Novels by Ruth Saberton writing as Jessica Fox include <em>The Hen Night Prophecies</em> (series of five) (Headline &ndash; Little Black Dress &ndash; UK) and <em>Married Men</em> (Weltbild &ndash; Germany).</p><p>The novel comes with an enviable pull-out quote from Richard Madeley: &quot;I&rsquo;d give it a solid line of stars &ndash; it&rsquo;s a hoot...a really readable novel, from its twist opening to its last paragraph.&nbsp; It made me laugh out loud ... I loved the ballsiness and yearning of the central character&hellip; pacey, assured, bubbling with both suppressed and expressed humour . . . it&#39;s a hoot, and clever, and fresh.&quot;</p>
