The Last of the Summer Moet

Written by Wendy Holden

Top reporter Laura Lake has struck journalistic gold.

She’s discovered a super-exclusive English village where the rich and famous own weekend retreats. Where film stars, Turner-prize winners and Cabinet ministers park their helicopters outside the gastropub and buy £100 sourdough loaves from the deli.
Outsiders are strictly forbidden. But luckily Laura’s best friend Lulu, a logo-obsessed socialite with a heart as huge as her sunglasses, suddenly fancies a quiet life in the country. The door to this enchanted rural idyll opens for Laura. Revealing a great professional opportunity.
Can Laura write an exposé before the snobbish villagers suss her true identity? And before the world’s poshest pub quiz triggers a political scandal not seen since Profumo?

Gorgeous and Giggly!  225


This is such a fun read – warm, witty and I defy anyone not to giggle all the way through!

Laura Lake has the weirdest colleagues and even more outlandish friends and I loved every one of them. Wendy Holden is an author I have read previously – oops, some time ago – but her talent in choosing wild and wacky names for her characters hasn’t diminished one bit and she follows through with her fabulous descriptions of some very strange characters indeed! The basic storyline is good, but the embellishments are what makes this story GREAT.

I had the strangest moments working out characters genres – it’s really not so easy to decide whether ‘Wonky’ is male or female and as for ‘Vlad’ .. well, read the book and you’ll see what I mean! Would I recommend this – you bet! Give yourself a treat and line this one up .. you’ll raise your spirits, laugh out loud and have the best time!

My thanks to publishers Head of Zeus for approving my copy via NetGalley.  This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
