A British non-romantic comedy built on white lies, pink elephants and grey areas.

LONDON: Four sisters swipe left on everything they hate, one cocktail at a time.

Louise dreams of an exotic lifestyle, miles away from Hackney. Nick comes along. Famous, fit, funny and filthy rich. She will stop at nothing to seduce him. She will fake it till she makes it. All the way to the ka-ching bling ring. But the little white lies soon snowball into a mountain Louise’s Louboutins can’t climb.

Jess juggles work, two babies, a cheating husband and nannies from hell.

Carla goes on a bender, and wakes up next to her young assistant. Freddie.

Emily is getting over her cheating ex by throwing herself into the dating scene.

When work, dating and proposals…all go wrong, the four sisters’ friendship is their only lifeline.

Review new 2021

Set in London, #Toots is what the author is using to describe the sisters in the book as it follows four sisters, Louise, Jess, Carla and Emily, all living very different lives but they are always there for one another when they each need a helping hand.

First up is Carla, who is so fed up with being led on by boyfriend Ben that she dumps him only to have a fling with Freddie, her younger work colleague.

Next is Louise, who wants glamour and glitz and will stop at nothing to make handsome, rich, millionaire Nick hers.

Youngest sister Emily has recently been dumped and is heartbroken. Lola, her flatmate, thinks it’s time she got over him and tries to encourage her to get back on the scene by online dating.

Lastly, we have Jess. She is married and has children but is obsessed that her husband is cheating on her as he no longer has time for her or the children. Jess finds her life a hard struggle especially as she is working as well.

#Toots will have you laughing out loud in places and also shouting at them on certain storylines. The sisters are all very likeable in their own way and I really enjoyed getting to know them as the story developed. This is a book that jumps around quite a bit and you have to remember which storyline is about which sister.

I Love the idea Linh Le James had of including cocktail recipes to each of the chapters as well.

There is going to be a sequel, so I am happy to read more about the adventures of the sisters when the time comes. Interesting plot and fun too. Very different sisters with different problems make for a great read.
