Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A terrific read. Fast-moving and hard to put down, this is the tale of the four Balcon sisters, London’s darlings, always in the headlines. Their aristocratic and tyrannical father, who has never shown them any love, is murdered and the finger of suspicion is pointed at his daughters. Now watch their lives being torn apart! Wow! This is glitzy, sensational stuff with heart.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Daddy's Girls by Tasmina Perry

The Balcon sisters are London's paparazzi darlings. Serena, the country's most beautiful actress, Venetia the glamorous designer, Camilla the rising political star and Cate the feisty magazine editor. They have wealth, privilege and sizzling sex lives.

But money doesn't buy you love. When their aristocratic and tyrannical father Oswald Balcon is found dead, the finger of suspicion points towards his glamorous daughters and their dazzling lives. Suddenly we find that beneath the ritzy façade of the Balcon family lies a web of deceit and betrayal that hides a thirty-year-old secret that threatens to destroy them all.

From the sun drenched beaches of Mustique to Manhattan's elite society circuit. From the exclusive fashion houses of Milan to the star-studded streets of Cannes, the Balcon Sisters play out their lives in a whirl of glitz and the ultra chic. But as tragedy and danger stalks each one of them, the scene is set for a stunning climax


'Daddy's Girl's is the hottest holiday accessory this season. Slick, glossy and gloriously bitchy it's about sibling rivalry and the super-glam Balcon girls - but which one killed Daddy? The bonkbuster is back.’ Elle

‘Amid all the romping and camp one-liners, there are tart observations about race, class and family dynamics, too. The perfect beach read.’ Marie Claire

‘This glam and glitz, power and corruption romp of a book celebrates the genre of the great big beach read with no holds barred.’ Good Housekeeping
