Queen Bee By Jane Fallon

Queen Bee‘Queen Bee’ is the latest book by Jane Fallon and just like her previous novels, nothing is what it seems in this suburban drama.

When Laura’s marriage falls apart, the last thing she expected was to move out of her home without her daughter and moving into a small granny flat whilst trying to get in life in order. Moving into an area of success and wealth, Laura is already under a watchful eye box being a single woman so when a husband of her neighbour, claims that she left him a book with an inscription, Laura finds herself amongst the cast of ‘Mean Girls’ as the women of the neighbourhood turn on her and cast their loyalties with their friend called Stella, an extremely bitchy and insecure woman with 2 bitchy daughters who enjoy nothing more than belittling Laura’s little girl called Betsy. Laura is determined to clear her name and prove people wrong, with her aid of her employee Angie who works for Laura’s cleaning business to help find evidence to prove that she’s not interested in Stella’s husband.

‘Queen Bee’ is another sharply written and observational story by Jane, a story about the dynamics of the rich and privileged and how they treat the not so rich, particularly when it comes to female friendships. I loved Laura and how easily she fitted into The Close, but even when she was blamed for something that she had nothing to do with, she rose above it and claimed her innocence and even making an unlikely friend along the way. Her main concern and priority was wanting to create a safe and homely environment for her sweet little girl. Stella was also a great character, bitchy and privileged, scenes with her and Laura always made for entertaining reading as they swiped at one another.

The story has a great mix of personalities and the people from different societies and classes also made for interesting reading in the story. I found the story to well written with a nice pace and flow to it, with a lot of dry wit and humour, that mainly came from the protagonist of the story.

A story that can be consumed in one sitting and really brightened up a wet and dreary afternoon. ‘Queen Bee’ is another fun and revengeful story from the ‘Sunday Times’ bestseller, with drama, twists and plenty of Jane’s trademark wit, this book was a compulsive read!

You can buy ‘Queen Bee’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

My Sweet RevengeI’m delighted to see that Jane Fallon is kicking off the new year with a new book called ‘My Sweet Revenge’.

The story of ‘My Sweet Revenge’ is –

I want to make my husband fall back in love with me.

Let me explain. This isn’t an exercise in 1950s wifeydom. I haven’t been reading articles in old women’s magazines.’Twenty ways to keep your man’. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

I want him to fall back in love with me so that when I tell him to get the hell out of my life he’ll care. He won’t just think, ‘Oh good’.

I want it to hurt.

Paula has had Robert’s back since they got together as drama students.
She gave up her dreams so he could make it.
Now he’s one of the nation’s most popular actors.
And Paula’s just discovered he’s having an affair.

She’s going to remind Robert just what he’s sacrificing.
And then she’s going to break his heart like he broke hers.
It will be her greatest acting role ever.

Revenge is sweet.
Isn’t it?

Strictly Between Us By Jane Fallon

Strictly Between Us’’Strictly Behind Us’ is the latest book by Jane Fallon.

Behind every great woman stands another one. And for television producer Tamsin, that’s Bea, her brilliant assistant. The only one Tamsin can trust with her coffee order, her dry-cleaning and filing – Bea does it all with a smile on her face. So when Tamsin hears a rumour that Patrick, her oldest and best friend’s husband, is cheating on his wife, she is furious. Knowing she can’t just ignore it, Tamsin plots a scheme to catch Patrick in the act, using Bea as live-bait. It should be foolproof. Except Tamsin never considered Bea might have her own agenda. And if she does, then Tamsin really needs to watch her back…

Jane Fallon is back with another great story, a story about friendship and lying, this deceitful tale was impossible to put down. The story is about Tasmin, who has been best friends with Michelle, since they were teenagers, she can never imagine Michelle not in her life and when Michelle marries Patrick, she considers the pair of them more as family than friends. But then one day, Tasmin hears through the grapevine that Patrick is a bit of a womaniser and desperate to find out whether there is any truth in it or not, she asks her assistant Bea to help honeytrap Patrick and find out if there is any truth in the rumours. Then follows on a story, filled with drama, illicit affairs and compromising positions.

The story is seen primarily through the eyes of Tasmin, a woman who likes to be in control in life, happy in her career as a television executive, everything is going well, the only thing that is missing is a man. I did find myself feeling sorry for Tasmin, as she tried to find love as well as look out for her best friend, but then when things spiralled out of control and she finds herself in trouble, my feelings did change and I didn’t feel as sorry as her, infact I began to dislike her as the story progressed. The story is also seen through the eyes of Bea, who is Tasmin’s assistant and I thought this a genius idea, as it turned the story completely on its head, as we saw a completely different side to the angelic character who shines in Tasmin’s eyes.

Presented in a stylish cover, I loved this story and in Jane’s trademark style there is always a twist that catches the reader off guard. Filled with likeable and dislikable characters, the book is a compelling and cleverly written story about friendship and just how far you will go to protect your friendship. A fast moving story with edgy plot-lines and divided loyalties, ‘Strictly Between Us’ is an intriguing tale about love and lies.

You can buy Strictly Between Us from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
