LoveReading View on The Adventuress

From the 1980s to the present, a big, sweeping rags-to-riches tale of Cathy Fox, a woman with a mission, vis to be rich, powerful, glamorous and sexy.  She certainly achieves her ambition.  This is glorious stuff.  Jilly Cooper/Jackie Collins mix with three intriguing plot lines all coming satisfactorily together.  It is the sort of book that leaves you panting.  Literary buffs may see a parallel to Becky Sharp!

 

The Lovereading view...

With witty, waspish, engaging and pitch perfect prose you can’t help but love the adventures of Cathy Fox, a modern day Becky Sharp [Vanity Fair], as she rises through England’s social strata. Spanning four decades this is a compelling, delicious social comedy about money, sex, power and having it all. Go Cathy!

Sarah Broadhurst

The Adventuress Synopsis

No one forgets Miss Cathy Fox in a hurry. From her scorpion tattoo to her other more worldly charms she's a woman on a mission to get what she wants. Leaving behind her humble beginnings folding knickers as a matron's assistant, Cathy embarks on a journey that will take her from a Portsmouth backstreet to the boardrooms of the global empires. With a cast of footballers, media moguls, lords and dukes, Coleridge charts the rise of a woman who will not be denied, right to the very pinnacle of society - a Royal Wedding.
