Mew Stanton: Fashionable, beautiful and a notorious TV chef, Dexter’s ex-girlfriend has all the ingredients for success. As her books fly off the shelves, a secret from her past is about to surface with explosive consequences.
Holly Lydon: Ex girlband star who has fallen on hard times. Forced to make ends meet she’s having to sleep her way to the top. Now she’s making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Rosita Velázquez: Brazilian actress extraordinaire and girlfriend of Dexter’s brother, Leland. When she’s in town everybody needs to know about it, but this is one show-stopping entrance she’ll live to regret.
Three women have a past with Dexter and a grudge to bear against him. As fireworks ignite in the jet set capital of Europe, there’s murder on the menu. Who will be served their just desserts?
The sun is setting in the South of France. Pour yourself a glass of champagne and sit back for a read of revenge, regrets and shocking revelations that will have you hooked to the very last page.
Glitz and Glamour in abundance.
I was introduced to Nigel's books by a blogging buddy #BookAddictShaun and I'm eternally grateful for the recommendations.
Thanks also to Bookouture, Kim Nash and Nigel for allowing me an ARC of this book and inviting me to be part of this blog tour. It's an Honour as always.
So the book, well well well, what can I say. It's fantastic as usual, Nigel certainly sets the bar high, and you can sometimes worry that when an author has written so many good books, the worry is that can they keep it up, well hell yeah, Nigel certainly can. It seems that each book Nigel writes just gets better and better.
Some great characters in this book, and I feel we was introduced to them brilliantly. I find when there are characters that you love and characters that you hate, then the author has done a perfect job.
I know I've said it previously but I really couldn't put this book down. I read it at every opportunity and it only took me a couple of days to get through it. I read it everywhere, every chance I got.
We are slowly introduced to a whole list of colourful characters, that bit by bit come together, as you start to realise who or how they all know each other.
Dexter Franklin is opening a new restaurant in St Tropez. He has hand picked his guests, each one totally different to the next. This is set to be a night to remember.
Why has Dexter hand picked this group for his opening night. Slowly secrets and lies of each character begin to surface.
Superbly written and very well put together. I really can't wait for more from Nigel. He certainly knows how to write a book that gets you hooked from the very beginning. That is why I'm giving this book 5 big fat Glittery, Sparkly, Sexy stars.
Nigel May has been described as "the UK's male Jackie Collins" and "the readers' Viagra" and is an author and TV host. His six page-turning fiction novels have all been published by Bookouture.
His first glam fiction novel was TRINITY, an action-packed blockbuster (or bonkbuster) about the lives of the rich and famous and three young women at the heart of it. Glamour, beauty, fame and celebrity mix with murder, intrigue and danger to create an explosive novel which gained incredible reviews and fans across the globe.
The glitz-meets-grit whodunit ADDICTED was another huge success and once again dived into the diamond-dipped world of the mega-rich as four women face their demons. But all of the money and celebrity fame in the world do not guarantee a happy ending. Especially for one of them...
SCANDALOUS LIES is steeped in secrets, sin, sex and scandal and takes readers around the world as a mysterious celebrity disappearance is investigated. Will weathergirl Georgia be able to find out what is behind her best friend's inexplicable vanishing before it's too late?
Spicy crime on overload for DEADLY OBSESSION, a gritty and glamorous psychological tale set in gangland Manchester that is dynamic and thrilling in all areas to the very last page. When Amy sees her husband gunned down at their nightclub, The Kitty Kat Club, she faces life as a young widow. But then six months later, a letter arrives from beyond the grave...
LOVERS AND LIARS is a truly tropical burst of storytelling where money and sex go hand in hand with murder. When Millionaire playboy Sheridan Rivers is found dead at his luxurious hotel on the paradise island of Barbados, there are several suspects in the frame. But who delivered the fatal blow?
Completing his sexy six-pack, REVENGE is a total page-turner. In the South of France, playground of the rich and famous, world renowned chef Dexter Franklin is organising a night to remember. As he opens the doors to his exclusive restaurant for the first time, he’s handpicked a list of guests, as hot and dazzling as the St Tropez sun itself. Three women have a past with Dexter and a grudge to bear against him. As fireworks ignite in the jet set capital of Europe, there’s murder on the menu. Who will be served their just desserts?
His books have been Amazon best sellers, read by celebrities and fellow authors alike, and have proved that a man can successfully write in a 'glam fiction bonkbuster world' that has always been a strongly female domain.
