I've just finished listening to this audiobook and found it a real treasure. I have previously listened to The Movie by Bagshawe and found it enjoyable if not a little predictable but this was better. The main characters of Juno, Athena, Diana and Venus are those 'it' girls that we love to hate. They have everything most of us have ever dreamed of, top designer wardrobes and glamourous lifestyles included, all funded by rich Uncle Clem. When the girls are summond to his palatial Seychelles mansion the bottom drops out of their world as Uncle Clem's new gold digging fiance Bai-Ling is introduced to them, and makes it clear that thrir days of living off him are over. The plot has many twists and turns as we learn about the girls and realise there is more to them than money alone. They each have talent and fears and romantic wants that upto now have been smothered by living up to what is expected of them by high class society and their Uncle. The narration was superb I especially liked Diana who reminded me of Honor Blackman and a fine job was also made of Jack with a wonderful Scottish drawl. It was also nice to get a guest appearance of a character from The Movie. True escapism very enjoyable listen.

I have listened to this book so often I'm amazed the disc still works ( only joking) it always capture's me, leaving me with a sense of wellbeing.
Glad I have it in my library, always available.
