Publisher's Summary

Secrets, rivalry, glamour - it's time for the party of the year....

Delilah has lived out her tempestuous marriage to hell-raiser Raf in the glare of the media spotlight. Now planning a milestone birthday, she has more on her mind than invitations.

Raf has been offered a part in a movie he can't refuse. But will he succumb to the temptations he's struggled to resist for the last ten years?

Delilah's three daughters are building careers of their own, only too aware that the press are waiting for them to slip up. For the Rafferty girls might look like angels, but they are only human.

It's the perfect recipe for a party like no other....

    Story
    "Awful accents"

    A good yarn, spoiled by the narrator - I don't understand why every character must be given a different voice/accent. The Welsh & Irish accents were particularly bad.

    "Just not for me"
    Any additional comments?

    I never thought I'd give up on a Veronica Henry, having devoured her Honeycote series, plus some standalones, but 5 hours in I can't warm to any of the characters except Polly and the young film producer.

    Will they get it together? I'd like to think so but it'll take me over 9 hours to find out, so I'll pass. No problems with the narration, just that the book isn't for me.

    Story
    "Ruined by strange voices!"

    Good story but why, oh why, does the narrator have to give most characters a ridiculous voice. There's Tiger sounding like a two-year old on helium and Raff, a supposedly 50ish attractive man sounding more like a mumbling old fool of 90. The only normal sounding person is Delilah. The women sound like pantomime characters and the men like Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins attempting a very bad cockney accent. Just read the story for goodness sake and leave the rest to the readers imagination!

    Story
    "Another great read"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Veronicas slow build up to the story with the introduction of all the characters and then the interaction of how they all come together. I think this book came to a nice end but too quickly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Collection of the dogs.
