Synopsis

Before We Were Thirty by Katie Agnew

Rachel Travis has lost her job, her figure, her friends and possibly her husband too. She has just moved from London to rural Wiltshire with their new baby and whilst all seems idyllic, Rachel can’t help feeling that life is passing her by. At first sight Rachel has little in common with the other young women in Coombe. Bianca is an ex-glamour model, Harriet is rich, bitchy and eccentric and Summer is an enigmatic hippy. But with the arrival of a mysterious, sexy young millionaire, things begin to hot up. Under Jack’s magical influence, Rachel, Bianca, Harriet and Summer are thrown together into a whirl of parties, adventures, friendship and love.

Why does Jack show such an interest in them all? Can one man really bring happiness to four women? As summer draws to an end, the twenty-somethings realise they still have a lot to learn before they are thirty…

CLOSER

'A scorching bonkbuster'
DAILY EXPRESS

'A grown-up novel that excites from the off: Agnew has a keen eye on the dark side of the high life as well as its shallowness, and her writing is as lively as her plotting'
