Twenty-six-year-old Esme Munroe has finally left the Scottish Highlands for the excitement of London.
Working at a prestigious art gallery in Mayfair, she meets gorgeous, worldly Suki, who takes her to the most exclusive bars and clubs in the city.
But it’s easy to get lost in London’s glamour and chaos, especially when a long-hidden secret looms – will Esme discover it and who she can really trust, before it’s too late?
This was a modern take on the sort of novels Jilly Cooper and Jackie Collins are famous for – posh girl making her way in the world, complete with parties, Society types and sex.
Esme is a bit naive and needs to grow a thicker skin to make it in the 80s London art world.
She’s landed a job and a temporary home courtesy of her sister’s godfather, an art dealer who lives with his flamboyant partner is Kensington.
Making friends as an adult is hard, and Esme struggles to find her place and her tribe.
Susannah Constantine (of Trinny & fame) is an enjoyable writer and knows her world of privilege and picking a few things up in Harrods well.
