What could be worse than returning to the place where you were tormented so terribly as a child? For Isabel Serranti, that answer would be nothing. Izzy loves her job as a party planner, but when her boss asks her to head up a charity event at the Pantiles estate, she finds herself sick with dread. Pantiles was her second home as a child, with the Monkwell’s a second family to her. But her childhood friend, Simon Monkwell, turned from best friend to tormentor in their early years, and Izzy has many doubts and fears about coming face to face with him again.
Party Girl from British author Sarah Mason is a laugh out loud chick lit novel, filled with humor, love, and even a bit of suspense with a wide array of quirky characters filling the pages. Why did Simon insist of making Izzy’s childhood so awful? Who exactly is Izzy’s roommate, Dom, shacking up with? And can an odd assortment of a party planner, financier, housekeeper, and other oddballs be able to save the Pantiles estate from going under? The shocking twist at the end comes as a surprise, but helps pull the entire novel and cast of characters together, so everyone can receive their happy ending.
