Goodreads blurb – “Bel Hailstone has spent the past decade building her dream – Soho’s best burlesque club – from the ground up. But now The Martini Club is under threat and it will take everything in Bel’s power to resist encroaching developers and save her pride and joy.
Amidst the chaos Bel’s past comes knocking with the unexpected arrivals of her still-not-quite-ex-husband, her estranged mother and Brodie Porter – the boy who got away all those years ago.
To keep her beloved club afloat – not to mention her sanity – Bel will have to accept help for the first time in a long time, put the past to rest and claim the happy ever after she once thought was lost for good.”
I loved Prosecco and Promises, the second book in The Martini Club Trilogy, so when I had the chance to read this for the blog tour I couldn’t wait to get started.
Bel is such a fabulous character who I rooted for from the first page. I loved her gusty personality and admired her tenacity when faced with so many unexpected developments.
As I found out more about her past I liked her even more, even wanting to get on board helping her save ‘The Martini Club’ and sort things out in her personal life.
Once again I loved the way the author managed to transport me to London and make me care about what happened to her characters. By the time I finished reading this I felt like I knew them all so well and didn’t want to leave them at the end.
I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a book with characters you can believe in and a plot to get involved with.
Thanks so much to Elli Pilcher at Canelo for my digital copy via NetGalley.
