Three neighbours live in a classy cul-de-sac in a little village where everyone knows everybody else’s business. All three women are married but that is where the similarities lie.
Alison is a snooty cow who thinks nothing of sucking up to the ‘lady of the manor’ celebrity type. Her daughter goes to the swanky private school so she has to be a yummy mummy and expresses her distress at the lifestyle of her friends, but is content to have coffee at their houses until something better comes up.
Florrie is desperate for a family but hubby shoots blanks and Daisy is a happy-go-lucky mum of three, perfectly satisfied with the local primary school, wears her PJ’s unless she has to go out and generally has a sense of humour. She is content if she can sit at home and watch Jeremy Kyle.
The highlight of the year is the May Ball, all the village are involved somehow whether it’s organising or attending. The story follows the lives of these couples and boy do they have some situations arise!
Written with fabulous humour and toe curling accuracy at some of the antics. Once I realised where the title came into it everything fell into place. I wasn’t always right about who knew who but it was sure fun finding out. Scandal, secrets, betrayal galore what more could a reader want!
This is the type of book that you pick up with a view to reading a chapter at a time then get so engrossed before you know it it’s half gone .. I really enjoyed being an inhabitant of this village and didn’t want it to end. Superb for lifting my mood.
All is not as it seems in the village however and it soon becomes apparent that it is actually a hotbed of gossip and scandal! Go to the corner shop if you want to find out more!
Living in a small village myself I loved this book as it is so true - the amount of gossip and scandal is amazing - especially the speed that it is transmitted - great lighthearted read ideal for the beach
In a small town in England, three completely different neighbors can be friends.
Each one has its own peculiar way of seeing life and keeping their marriage. The gossip and rumors that are part of the city's day-to-day affect them differently as well.
The rumors are the most diverse and, as always, I like to pay attention to that character that would be the secondary, but that ends up making the plot a lot more interesting. Here this character is Mrs. Thompson (every town or condo has one like her).
Quality Women Literature that amuses and makes you think.
It's Debbie's trademark irony that lightens up an otherwise harsh and bad reality; very serious matters are treated, as usual, in a very light but never shallow way.
As the truth unfolds so does the actual personality of the character. It's Less of a comedy and more of a drama without being heavy.
I particularly Jeremy Kyle always blaring in the background providing a masterfully plotted contrast to the real scene.
Fantastic read, as usual.
