Don't miss the new coming-of-middle-age story from Harper Ford, perfect for fans of Alexandra Potter and Ruth Jones!

Hot Not Bothered is the new hilarious, no-holds-barred and heartfelt novel about the rollercoaster of menopause, from hot flushes to HRT and everything in-between.


It's a bloody mess but she ain't stressed...

Heidi is tired. Tired, grumpy and hot as hell.

Juggling the demands of her stressful job whilst parenting two children is proving chaotic, and Heidi has well and truly run out of f**ks to give.

When her menopause symptoms skyrocket, Heidi dives headfirst into a sea of comically contradictory advice, absurd doctors' appointments, and the wild world of online support forums that range from cult-like to totally bloody batshit.

The last straw comes when Heidi receives a patronising company-wide email from HR supporting 'women of a certain age'. Heidi accidentally hits 'reply all' when calling out the bullshit, only to suddenly find herself the inadvertent new face of the menopause in her office...

Don't miss the new hilarious novel about the menopause, second (or third) chance love - and the unexpected ways we can find our tribe at any age.
