Film Director, Kate Miller, is in serious trouble. The entire cast and crew of the reality TV show The Hen Party has gone missing while filming in Mallorca. To make matters worse, the network boss has just flown in and will be arriving any minute to check up on her production.
Kate thinks it's all her fault. She hasn't exactly been following the guidelines.
But if she is to blame, why were the hens arguing among themselves? And why is the groom-to-be calling her in tears?
Kate doesn't know the half of it. The hens have their own secrets and it's only matter of time before they all come tumbling out.
A party of eight arrive on the island, but not everyone's going home.
Q & A with the author, Emily Benet
-Why did you decide to write a book about a Hen Party?
I love novels which follow multiple characters; novels by Liane Moriarty and Deborah Moggach. Big, Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is one of my favourite books and really inspired me. Having written three books, Shop Girl Diaries, The Temp and #PleaseRetweet in the first person, I was determined to write a novel with more than one main protagonist. I wanted to start with a mystery and for the reader to see each character's version of events. I thought a hen party offere the possibility of a fun cast of characters and group dynamic.
-Why did you set it in Mallorca?
I love Mallorca. It's a place I know well and I couldn't resist the opportunity to write about it. It's perfect for the plot. It's got beautiful beaches and countryside, plus not far from the hens' villa is the notorious party town, Magaluf. I think The Hen Party would make a good beach read so hopefully I'll see people reading The Hen Party on a Mallorcan beach this summer!
-What can readers expect?
To be entertained! It's a fun, fast-paced summery read set in a beautiful place. It's got twists and turns and everyone has a secret. It's not a traditional romance or a comedy, but it's got both in there!
