The perfect escapist beach read for fans of Joan Collins and Jilly Cooper
'Totally self-indulgent, escapist pleasure: I adored it!' Sophie Kinsella
In the glittering world of international diamond dealing, all is not beautiful, polished and perfect... Tilly Bagshawe is back with another smart and sexy round-the-world romp.
Set in the glittering world of international diamond dealing, FLAWLESS follows the fortunes of idealistic young designer Scarlett Drummond Murray as she battles her way through the snake pits of greed and corruption in the jewellery business.
From London to Beverly Hills, New York to Cape Town, Scarlett finds herself plunged into a world of ruthless mine owners, shady diamond dealers, and the stunningly beautiful women for whom they all compete, in business and in bed. All of them, in their different ways, are prepared to sell their souls and sacrifice everything in pursuit of that one, elusive, perfect stone, no matter what the cost.
But is Scarlett also destined to be blinded by the brilliance of the temptation that surrounds her? Or can she keep her nerve - and her principles - and make it to the top with her heart and her business still intact?
Everyone loves Flawless:
'A rollicking romp of a read...Bagshawe has come up with a corker' GLAMOUR
'So much fun you won't be able to put it down' OK
'An entertaining, light-hearted read...racy, pacy and very funny' OBSERVER
Set against the glamorous, dangerous world of the diamond industry, this epic romance is part soap opera and part thriller. Bagshawe (Scandalous) takes readers around the world with four people who cross ruthless diamond mine owner Brogan O'Donnell. Jewelry designer Scarlett Murray wants him to clean up his act and stop exploiting his workers; Brogan's wife, Diana, wants to be loved and have a child; and diamond-merchant brothers Jake and Danny Meyer want Scarlett and Diana, respectively. What results is a series of torrid affairs and professional setbacks and accomplishments, infused with dramatic twists and heartfelt revelations. The convoluted plot, which spans years and continents, burns slowly. While the main characters are likable enough, the rampant racism, sexism, and homophobia espoused by the antagonists and secondary characters makes them both less sympathetic and less interesting.
