Publisher's Summary

Secrets, rivalry, glamour - it's time for the party of the year....
Delilah has lived out her tempestuous marriage to hell-raiser Raf in the glare of the media spotlight. Now planning a milestone birthday, she has more on her mind than invitations.
Raf has been offered a part in a movie he can't refuse. But will he succumb to the temptations he's struggled to resist for the last ten years?
Delilah's three daughters are building careers of their own, only too aware that the press are waiting for them to slip up. For the Rafferty girls might look like angels, but they are only human.
It's the perfect recipe for a party like no other....

Awful accents

A good yarn, spoiled by the narrator - I don't understand why every character must be given a different voice/accent. The Welsh & Irish accents were particularly bad.

Just not for me

Any additional comments?

I never thought I'd give up on a Veronica Henry, having devoured her Honeycote series, plus some standalones, but 5 hours in I can't warm to any of the characters except Polly and the young film producer.

Will they get it together? I'd like to think so but it'll take me over 9 hours to find out, so I'll pass. No problems with the narration, just that the book isn't for me.
