The Shoe Queen

by Anna Davis

The Shoe Queen Synopsis

English society beauty Genevieve Shelby King parties to the utmost with the Anglo-American artists and writers of Montparnasse. She has a rich husband, a glamorous apartment and an enormous shoe collection. But there is something hollow at the centre of Genevieve's charmed life. When she spots a pair of unique and exquisite shoes on the feet of an arch rival one night, her whole collection -- indeed everything she has -- seems suddenly worthless. The exclusive designer Paolo Zachari, renowned for his fabulous shoes and eccentric behaviour, hand-picks his clients according to whim. And he has determined to say no to Genevieve. As her desire for the pair of unobtainable shoes develops into an obsession with their creator, Genevieve's elaborately designed life comes under threat, and she is forced to confront the emptiness at its heart.

The Shoe Queen Press Reviews

What a book. Prepare to be plunged into the obscenely-rich, scandal-spiked, intrigue-laced world of 1920s Paris...Luxurious and edged with peril, like slipping on a pair of unwalkably-high Manolos. * Cosmopolitan * If you yearn for latter-day soirees and have a shoe fetish to rival Carrie Bradshaw's, you'll love this book about an English society beauty * Heat * An enthralling tale of a heel-obsessed socialite, whose desire to own a pair of exclusive Paolo Zachari shoes is so great, it leads to an affair with the designer himself * In Style * An entertaining tale of desire, desperation and designer pumps * Metro * So sharply individual, a brilliant, clever idea -- Rachel Billington
