I knew nothing of the world of Chelsea and can't say I was even interested before I read this cracking novel but have to say that now, I want more of the same! It doesn't matter if this isn' normally the sort of circles you move in or even the sort of book you normally read, it's just so ENTERTAINING. The plot is slick and sophistocated and the author knows the world she writes about so well, you can't help but be carried along and seduced by it yourself. The characters are multi-faceted and often, completely hilarious - the one-liners and acerbic wit of characters like Calgary had me laughing out loud on the train and repeating them in my head all day long. Sex scenes in fiction are so often cringeworthy or overdone but the sex in this book is SEXY!! And yu never get the feeling the writer has just plonked sex scenes there for the sake of it, they carry the story along and all thecharacters have different sex styles. This book reminded me of the Tv series MISTRESSES, which I loved: it's slick, classy, funny and briliantly plotted. I can't wait for the next one from Anna-Lou Weatherley and would recommed this to anyone who wants a fast sexy read with real substance.

This had me hooked from the prologue, I ended up reading the entire book in less than a day and a half and left myself without anything else to read!

The story tells of the flawed marriages of 3 women who find solidarity in their suffering, then conspire to have their revenge on the men in their lives. The 3 main characters are all likeable in their own way: Imogen the beautiful ex model, married to sebastian the controlling, egocentric banker. Imogen is the epitome of graciousness, there's just nothing to dislike about her. Calvary the glamorous ex-fashion editor married to Douglas the master of indiscretion; she is feisty and strong, her acerbic wit gives her story a humorous edge. Finally Yasmin the ex-party girl married to Jeremy the dodgy ex-playboy; Yasmin doesn't really fit the image of Chelsea's high society types but she doesn't give a hoot and neither do we! As well as our 3 main characters there are some other great female characters in there too, but one of them has a plan and it's a cunning one.

The plot is sharp and well paced and there are enough twists in the right places to keep your interest, the descriptions of luxury brands transport the reader into a world of designer clothes and accessories, plush restaurants, expensive Champagne, and beautiful abodes. The writing style is eloquent - making the book an easy read - and witty - giving the characters and the tangled webs they weave life. The author really does have you rooting for the girls although I have to admit to liking Douglas' character; I wish I could verbalise a shake of the head. That said my favourite characters were Calvary, Cressida and Yasmin; Calvary for her acerbic wit, Cressida for her self preservation and loyalty, and Yasmin for her story.

A good light read in a fantasy way. An insight into how the 'other half' live! As an OAP I suppose I should not be reading such nonsense but I enjoyed it all the same!

This isn't a bad read at all. It is an extension of the old Sloane Square brigade. It has the advantages of being in a modern setting and an author who understands the genre and potential readership. The marriages of three couples are imperfect to say the least, but not yet on the rocks. The females contrive to seek revenge on their male partners. Imogen, Calvary, and Yasmin reek havoc to hit Sebastian, Douglas, and Jeremy respectively. Their luxurious shopping and glamorous life styles hit home without regard for the lawless plot that underpins their motives.

This is chic and voguish with modern undertones. How far will the wives go to satisfy their grievances and drive home their desires? Alpha-males, beware of the backlash. The plot is irrelevant to the fun and humour the novel brings. A cheerful easy read that will bring many a smile to those who recognise the predicament of the protagonists.

If you are a fan of Desperate Housewives or Made In Chelsea then I recommend you march down to the shops and buy this book immediately! Welcome to the world of the Chelsea Wives, three stunning ladies who lunch, living the high life with luxury holidays, designer clothes and envious lifestyles. But beneath all the glitz and glamour, their perfect lives are not as rosy as they seem. Calvary has too often been put in the position of turning a blind eye to her husband's indiscretions, Imogen's husband is very manipulative and party-girl Yasmin's life has an air of mystery about it. Together, the women devise a plan to have ultimate revenge on their husbands...

This book is the ultimate escapism; feisty, sexy, glamourous and absorbing. The revenge is very well written, there are lots of twists and surprises that keep you hooked, I read the book in one sitting because I was so gripped! The characters were brilliant, as the wives individual stories unravelled I found myself wishing I could read quicker because I constantly wanted to find out more!

The drama and the story was so compelling, and as the reader I was really rooting for the girls to get what they wanted! This is a fun, thrilling story with an insight into the high life we all dream of. I was carried away by this entertaining, sophisticated and addictive story, and I'm certain you will be too. Anna-Lou Weatherley is definitely an author to look out for!!!

Whatever you are doing this summer, pick up this seductive and captivating book, the Chelsea Wives are in town and they are definitely here to stay!
