Publisher's Summary

After years of being the perfect wife and mother, Francesca Kirwan’s life is changed irrevocably one dismal autumn morning when her husband Mark forgets his mobile phone. In the space of 10 minutes, her comfortable, safe, uneventful existence is completed shattered. With her life turned upside down and an extremely uncertain future ahead of her, she has two choices…sink or swim!

Francesca decides to get a life, but first she must deal with razor-sharp international banker Nikki Langan. Super-babe is 10 years younger and two stone lighter than Francesca. Sculpted, toned, and dressed to kill, Nikki wants it all and she doesn’t intend to let anyone, least of all Francesca, stand in her way. But youth and beauty aren’t everything, and Francesca proves to be a far tougher adversary than the glamorous career girl had anticipated.

After a shaky start, Francesca’s life takes a decidedly upward turn. New job, new friends, new lifestyle, and dishy journalist Ralph Casson showing more than a professional interest in her, much to Mark’s immense displeasure.

Francesca decides to throw a party, and that’s when the fun really starts! Revenge is a dish best served cold…especially if you’ve been on a diet.

    "Don't Bother..."

    This book sounded like just the kind I read, but I spend most of the book wondering if I should give up.... I found the narrator really wishy washy too, I don't think her voice is strong enough to be a narrator.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Francesca's Party to be better than the print version?

    If you have ever been in this situation you will understand the anger and hurt Francesca went through - It bought back a lot of memories for me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was

    "Loved the book, hated the narration"

    I had read the book version of Francesca's Party and loved it. I was really looking forward to hearing the audio book, what a huge disapointment it was! The narrator had a posh english accent, and whilst there is nothing wrong with that, this book is set in Ireland, the narrators attempt to speak with an irish accent was truly dreadful - it quite spoilt the audio book for me. To be honest at one point during her narration she sounded Indian. An Irish narrator would have made this book so much more enjoyable and believable.
