Summary

The ultimate glamorous, escapist blockbuster - perfect for fans of Melanie Blake, Jackie Collins and Shirley Conran's Lace.

Glamour. Deceit. Sex. Deadly ambition.

They have the world at their feet.

And they want it all.

Innocent Phoebe has only known a life of privilege.

Street-smart Paula has had to make her own way in the world.

When the two girls meet as teenagers, they form a deep sisterly bond, recognising in one other a yearning for love and for lives that are different from the ones into which they were born. But when they each suffer a personal trauma, they are torn apart and set out on very different paths.  

So begins a rollercoaster journey throughout the 1970s of extreme highs and lows for Phoebe and Paula, as they travel from the epicentre of cool on the Kings Road, Chelsea, to the glamour of Paris, LA and the South of France. 

It's a scandalous world of sex, drugs, celebrity and wealth - alluring, addictive...and deceptive.

Critic reviews

"Campbell's warm, wise bonkbuster...transports you to the sexual free-for-all of the 1970s.... There's an upbeat honesty in the writing that reminded me of Jilly Cooper." (Rowan Pelling, Daily Mail)

"A rip-roaring, gold-plated, sizzling bonkbuster - this is one for Jackie Collins fans everywhere who are missing the glitz!" (Fiona Walker)

Addicting

This book reminds me of Valley of the Dolls. That is one of my favorite books so it was really exciting to get the same vibes from this book. I enjoyed everything about this story and wish I could keep on reading about the girl lives. I also thought the performance was one of the best I have heard.

I hope more people give this book a chance because it is so enjoyable!
