Dubbed a ‘brainy blockbuster’ by the publishers this is a good meaty yarn about four friends from 1981 onwards. It’s got all the right ingredients – glamour, intrigue, heartache, loss and tragedy - you name it and it’s got it. The Lace of today, cracking stuff.

If you like Lesley Lokko you might also like to read books by Louise Bagshawe, Olivia Darling and Joanna Rees.

Synopsis

Sundowners by Lesley Lokko

Take four friends... Rianne: beautiful, wealthy and thoroughly spoilt, she has the world at her feet but is about to risk everything. Gabrielle: intelligent, loyal and always worrying about everyone else, now it's time for her to start looking after No.1. Nathalie: petite, pretty and with a shrewd eye for business, she uses her work to help her forget the one man she can't have. Charmaine: flirty and outrageous, she knows all about the good life. She just needs someone to pay for it... Then a chance encounter changes everything - and for Rianne and her friends, nothing is going to be the same again...

Reviews

‘I enjoyed it hugely, not only because it is a rattling good read but because it's so refreshingly, wonderfully unpretentious.'
Sunday Express

'Agreeably glamorous and page-turning'
Daily Mail

About the Author

Lesley Lokko

Lesley Lokko was our Guest Editor in April 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Lesley Lokko’s most recent novel, One Secret Summer, has just been released in paperback and her next, A Private Affair, is due out this summer. After spending seven years training to be an architect, she promptly threw in the towel and began writing fiction instead. Lesley now splits her time between London, Accra and Johannesburg, with the odd winter spent writing in cottage just outside Edinburgh. Her Scottish friends think she’s mad.
