Mad About the Boy (Bridget Jones, #3) by Helen FieldingBridget Jones is back!
Great comic writers are as rare as hens teeth. And Helen is one of a very select band who have created a character of whom the very thought makes you smile. Bridget Jones Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s was a huge international bestseller, published in 40 countries and selling over 15 million copies worldwide. Its sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, published soon after was also a major international bestseller. Both were made into films starring Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.
Set in the present, the new novel will explore a different phase in Bridgets life with an entirely new scenario. As Helen Fielding has said: If people laugh as much reading it as I am while writing it then well all be very happy.

Mark Darcy was a modern, attainable and relatable option for me in my depressingly Darcy-free existence.
Posted by M. The Setup Bridget Jones is now fifty-one years old and widowed, Mark having died five years prior during a goodwill mission after his armoured vehicle hit a landmine in Darfur. Since then, Bridget has been raising their two children, Mabel and Billy — who are five and seven respectively — alone. Roxster, a man twenty-one years her junior. Roxster ends things with her because of their age differences. She ends up falling for Scott, for whom the feeling is more than mutual. The novel concludes with Bridget and Scott having a commitment ceremony and becoming a blended family, which includes her kids and his two sons from a previous marriage.
