Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for the new release from Nigel May, Revenge. I’m thrilled to be involved and I’d like to thank Nigel for letting me be part of it. There’s no doubting that I’m a huge fan of his books. Check out my review of the fabulous Revenge.
I discovered Nigel May in 2015 and read ‘Addicted’ while on holiday in Mallorca. It was a perfect beach read! Since then I’ve gone on to read the others, and his latest ‘Revenge’ completes his sexy six-pack and is due out on 10th Feb 2017
My Review – 5 stars
I loved this book. I wanted to be there in St Tropez, I even felt I was there. It was so glamorous.
I love the setting of Dexter’s new restaurant, Trésor. The decor was beautifully opulent, with a Moroccan theme….all gorgeous jewel colours. Some other beautiful locations were Iguazu Falls in Brazil and Chefchaouen (a gorgeous blue-tinted village) in Morocco.
It was a beautifully woven story, it all fitted together so well.
Rosita was so glamorous. Absolutely beautiful, with her faithful make-up artist Tinks always on hand. She wanted worldwide fame, not just in her native Brazil.
I liked Holly and Mew, ex girl-band members of Crazy Sour. Both with things from the past that had caused so much sadness. And secrets, which were gradually revealed.
I didn’t like Leland. Rich and successful, yes, but an eye for the ladies which wasn’t always ethical. Let’s just say the brotherly rivalry was strong, especially from his side of things.
Food critic DC was a chubby chap, I liked him though despite his straight talking manner.
Dexter was my favourite character. A lovely, loving man. Some sad things, and truly awful things, had happened with his relationships in the past.
I also liked Toni and Christophe, kind of bit part characters but important too.
Lots of the glitz and glamour I associate with Nigel May, I absolutely love it!! #glamfan
I had no idea who might be behind the brutal murder of international showgirl Cher Le Visage. Everyone seemed to be connected to her in some way.
The ending was perfect, in the private dining room, not what I expected. It had definitely kept me guessing.
An easy 5 star rating for me.
As usual I will be looking forward to the next one Nigel.
A favourite quote from the book:-
“He had won her over at his first ‘hello’. On a scale of successful ‘hellos’ it was up there with Lionel Ritchie and Adele”
I also see that Angela Marsons and Olivia (Oliver?) Rhodes get a mention J
