Review: Killer Affair by Rebecca Chance

51O6gCvCIZL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_What I thought:

What an absolute riot this book was! My first Rebecca Chance and I have already ordered her entire back catalogue. Pure fizz and sparkle – I loved it!

Caroline, a bored office worker and book blogger, can’t believe her luck when she is asked to ghostwrite the autobiography of the most famous reality TV star in the UK – Lexy O’Brien. Lexy shot to fame 20 years ago on a TV dating show and is now married to a premier league football player, has two bratty kids, and lives in a mansion. Unable to curb her wild ways and doing anything to keep in the paper, Caroline knows that writing Lexy’s memoirs will be a blast, only she’s not quite prepared for the green-eyed monster that not only rears its head but ultimately plots Lexy’s downfall…

I’ll be honest here, I never expected to pick up a Rebecca Chance book. Not because I’m snobby about what people read (I’m a champion of people reading full stop, without judging their tastes), but just because I can’t stand the world these type of people live in. I don’t watch much reality TV (TOWIE, Big Brother, Love Island etc.) and I can’t stand those magazines, the likes of which body shame on the front cover and are choc full of scantily-clad, fame-hungry wannabes inside. So what the hell happened?

Less than a month ago, I read my first Tasmina Perry book on a whim, never having read anything quite like that before. Since then I have devoured three more and, drawn by the glitzy cover, decided to pick up Rebecca Chance’s latest too. I must be in the mood for pure escapism because that’s what these books are and I’m having so much fun reading them.

There was never a dull moment in Killer Affair. I entered a world I didn’t know existed and have been simultaneously shocked, thrilled, delighted, enraged and stunned. What particularly tickled me were the references (sometimes only thinly veiled) to people I thought I recognised which got me wondering how close to the truth some of it was (see, there is a gossip in me after all…). It was certainly an eye-opener, put it that way.

Verdict:

A riot of fun, frolicks and f…ing. NEXT!!!

  1. I’ve read all of Rebecca Chance’s books and loved every single one of them. Usually whichever one I have just finished is my current favourite.

    Other authors you may enjoy if you are liking Tasmina Perry and Rebecca Chance, are Nigel May and Victoria Fox who again are both fabulous too.
