The Flirt by Kathleen Tessaro


The Flirt
by Kathleen Tessaro

Sexy, independant Leticia Vane runs her own bespoke lingerie shop and just knows how to make a woman feel beautiful. But love is strictly off limits for Leticia. She doesn't even believe it exists.

Socialite Olivia Bourgalt du Coudray has an exquisite house in Chester Square and everything money can buy, except a happy marriage.

Luckily, handsome young Hughie Venables-Smythe is discovering a secret new profession - the timeless art of the flirt. It can save a marriage or lift a heart faster then any therapy.

Only Hughie is something of a wild card. And when provocative anonymous notes are delivered to both Olivia and Leticia, events take a delicious turn. Who is flirting with whom? And is the flirtation innocent - or can it lead to more dangerous territories of the heart?

My View
If you're after a 'pick up and read' type of book then this is it, but if you're after a bit of real-life this is not the book, with a very made up tale of what London life is really about. Some of the plot is hard is to follow in places but you get your head round it and know what's going on again.  
The characters are well-developed and easy to follow. My favourite one is Leticia Vane - very sexy and independent.

3/5

  2. Might have to test this one out soon - I love a bit of 'unreal' life - too much real life going on so a bit of escapism is always good!
