Party Games


Although the countryside town of Beeversham looks picture-perfect, nothing is quite as it seems. Behind closed doors, three women are struggling to lead the lives they want.

Vanessa seems like she simply must have it all – she’s beautiful, rich and married to gorgeous actor, Conrad. But beneath the glitz, she is asking herself whether this really is the life she wants to lead – when she has so much, why does she feel so empty?

Meanwhile, Fleur is trying desperately to save the farm that her family have lived on for hundreds of years, when playboy Beau makes her an offer she can’t refuse.

And Catherine has given up the high-flying career she thought she always wanted, and is trying to build a wonderful new life in the country. But finding rural bliss is harder than it looks.

Hopes and dreams, loves and losses – and lots and lots of secrets – let Jo Carnegie take you behind the scenes of one very special town.

My opinion: This book is the latest offering from the wonderful Jo Carnegie, and her first book about the town of Beeversham.

Everything is not quite as it seems in this country town, and behind the picturesque exterior, a very different world is lurking. In this book we get to see what goes on behind closed doors for a number of residents, including celebrities, farmers and politicians.

The story is fun, fast paced and sexy, but still manages to touch on some serious issues, without being maudlin. I was glued to the page from beginning to end, and read huge hunks of the book each time I picked it up!

I loved all of the Churchminster books, and this one is just as good. I hope we get to know a lot more about Beeversham’s residents, and really enjoyed the few cheeky references to Churchminster!

A fantastic book which will make a brilliant holiday read this summer!
