In 2006, the song, “The Fern Britton Experience”, which featured in the album, Hang The DJ was named after her by the UK DJ Shitmat. I have read books by Fern before and enjoyed them so I was delighted to be asked to read The Postcard for the blog tour. When an opportunity comes Ella's way, she can't turn it down and finds herself living back in Cornwall. Before I began 'The Postcard', I had absolutely no idea what to expect as I hadn't read one of Fern Britton's novels before. It started off really good but then went a little flat and then the story with Penny’s sister Susie was a little silly for me and also predictable.

I really disliked Suzie from the onset, she is such a manipulative cow, predictable in places but still addictive to read about. It was also a relatively quick read for me as I read the whole of it on a plane journey home from the Canary Islands, and it kept me awake, and entertained for the duration of the flight. The three of them are great additions to this fantastic fictional village and they constantly put a smile on my face.From the bright and breezy cover of this book, I thought I would be in for a pleasant, easy-reading chick-lit book. Since then, Fern Britton has hosted several programmes, which include Carlton Television's After Five, BBC's Breakfast Time, London News Network's London Tonight and BBC 1’s Holiday. Fern Britton anchored the Pride of Britain Awards in 2002 and was one among the panellists on the satirical panel show, Have I Got News for You. Although the ending did resolve Penny’s story, it did so very quickly and I would have liked just a few more chapters explaining what happened in a bit more detail.

Penny's father passed away when she was a young girl and Penny never had a good relationship with her mother and sister. Penny seems to be settled as the vicars' wife and mother to the gorgeous Jenna, she is also still very much involved in her job as a television producer.She has a calm, gentle personality and it’s almost as though her voice is in my head narrating the story. My thanks to the publishers Harper Collins for my copy of this book which I won in a Summer Reading competition on Facebook. but the majority of her previous books appear to be set in Cornwall, and some have featured characters we get to know in The Postcard. For further information about your statutory rights, contact your local authority Trading Standards department or consumer advice center (for example the Citizen's Advice Bureau if you are in the UK).

She has also presented other programmes, like Coast to Coast People, The Television Show and Magic Moments. I also really enjoyed Ella's storyline and can't help but think this isn't the last that we have seen of her, at least I hope it isn't. The character Ella didn’t feature in it as much as I hoped and felt she was in it to set up her own story in another book which is perfectly fine but I feel the synopsis on the back of the book is a little misleading. However it can quite easily be read as a standalone novel and will no doubt tempt you to go back and read more about Pendruggan and its residents! On 12 January 2008, she was the winner in the first episode of Thank God You're Here, a television comedy series hosted by Paul Merton.My word this was just an amazing book I loved it from start to finish and juts had to keep reading it to find out what would happen next. Her best friend, Helen, also lives in the village with her partner Piran in Gull's Cry, a cosy cottage across the village green from the vicarage.
