From the beloved bestselling author Santa Montefiore comes a new novel filled with humour and heart. For fans of The Temptation of Gracie, Flappy now takes centre stage, more charismatic and competitive than ever.

Underneath her graceful exterior lies a passion nobody knew about, least of all Flappy herself…

Flappy Scott-Booth is the self-appointed queen bee of Badley Compton, a picturesque Devon village. While her husband Kenneth spends his days on the golf course, she is busy overseeing her beautiful house and gardens, and organising unforgettable events, surrounded by friends who hang on to her every word.

Her life is a reflection of herself – impossibly perfect.

Until the day that Hedda Harvey-Smith and her husband Charles move into the village. Into an even grander home than hers. Taking the front seat on the social scene, quite literally.

That simply will not do.

Flappy is determined to show Hedda how things are done here in Badley Compton. But then she looks into Charles’s beautiful green eyes. And suddenly, her focus is elsewhere. She is only human, after all…

Review by Selina

We meet Flappy Scott-Booth, thinking she is the most important person living in Badley Compton in Devon and acting as if she owns the place. She is the one everyone wants to be like and she makes no bones about making sure everyone knows this.

When Hedda Harvey-Smith and her husband Charles moved into the village, Flappy gets her nose put out of joint and suddenly thinks that she may lose her status in the village. As she tries to befriend Hedda, she is also getting to know Husband her Charles, who reciprocates Flappy’s advances and they embark upon an affair.

I enjoyed all the things Flappy was part of in the village, like the book club and yoga. She also knows how to throw a good party as well.

The story had some great supporting characters which we got to know a little about along the way.

Although Flappy wasn’t quite likeable at the beginning of the book, she could be really annoying, she soon grew on me and she pulls you into her world.

Santa Montefiore delivers a feel-good fun story, complete with lots of vivid descriptions of the surrounding areas which put the reader right there in the middle of Flappy’s life.
