      Leave it some time after you read the first book.

      The diary of a jet setting call girl is the follow onto the popular book the diary of a call girl in Manhatten by Tracey Quan. I enjoyed the first book. Dont get me wrong it was nothing too spectactular, but it was an enojyable easy read. When I saw this one in the paper back version in Tesco I snapped it up for a summer sunbathing read!

      The story is a direct follow on from the first book, except Nancy and her fiance are now married. So in this book, instead of pushing her to set a date, he's pushing her to have an offspring! Nancy ios her real name, and the name she tells all her clients is Suzy. There are a few funny moments in the book where other co workers slip up and almost call her by her real name in front of clients, or 'johns' as she calls them.

      In this book Nancy is still based in Manhatten. One of her wealthy clients askes her to accompany him to his property in France. She is hesitant at first as she has never been with a client for very long before. She has to lie to Matt and say she is going away with her mother. There is a lot of cover up work to do, which is often very risky, and adds to the excitment of the book.

      This is a great easy to read book, which is thoroughly entertaining. I enjoyed reading it whilst sunbathign this summer. If you liked the first one then this is more of the same!

      Tracy Quan has written three titles in this series:
      Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl
      Diary of a Married Call Girl
      Diary of a Jetsetting Call Girl.

      I have to say I missed the second in the series, I've been meaning to read it since I read the first one (which I think I got free with a magazine a few years ago), but I haven't come across it. When I was in the supermarket the other day and noticed this book, her third offering, I couldn't help but buy it. It was just under £4, or two books for £7. I got Richard Hammond's autobiography as well because I've been meaning to read that for ages.

      All in all I'm very happy with my purchase.

      Nancy is a high end call girl in Manhattan. She leads a double life, as wife to rich, successful banker Matt, and succesful call-girl.

      Matt has no idea, which is just as well given his sister Elspeth used to be prosecutor! The first book was very enjoyable, and in this offering, Nancy is now married to her fiance from the first book. They are trying for a baby, or so Matt thinks. Nancy is secretly on birth control, worrying what a caesarean scar would do to her business, vaginal delivery is just not an option! Nancy juggles her role as wife with meeting a series of rich mainly older clients in a variety of hotels, or the apartment she timeshares with another call girl. Things are getting particularly pressured for Nancy when her favourite client Milt, one she's been seeing for over ten years offers her a unique opportunity - go to Provence for a couple of weeks and stay with him at his house there (for a handsome fee of course). Of course, this presents problems of it's own - how can Nancy (or Suzy as Milt knows her) keep up her air of mystery and constant good looks etc. for this length of time. Plus Milt's on viagra, so she'll need help - who should she ask to join them?

      She chooses Allison, her ditsy best friend, who is flaky and unreliable at the best of times, but loyal. Unfortunately Allison is attending a seminar in Barcelona to promote hookers rights and the like (!) so has to join them later.

      Nancy tells Matt she's helping her mother look at farmhouses to purchase for the time she's away.

      Unfortunately, as usual things don't go according to plan! Allison is acting mysteriously, Nancy's mother turns up with her "close friend" Dodie, Nancy gets a crush on Milt's cook Duncan, Matt's sister starts getting suspicious, and a whole host of other problems to overcome.

      This book had me hooked and I finished it in record time - since I've had the little one it usually takes ages to finish a book but I raced through the chapters on this one.

      Now, I know you're all thinking you'll never warm to Nancy, she's a call girl who keeps her husband totally in the dark about what she does which is morally reprehensible. But the thing is somehow, you like her anyway, I don't know why. The story is told through her, and somehow you forgive her sins and want things to go well for her. She has an intense fear of being dependent on any one man and has been through a lot, although you only get tiny glimpses of her past in this book. She's a very complicated character, but the author has made her well rounded and believable.

      All in all this is an excellent read, and while it can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel, you'll probably get more out of it if you read the others first. I wasn't dissapointed, it's sexy, interesting and compelling.

      Beware though, this book is very explicit so not for the faint hearted or easily offended.

      Highly recommended by me, as is the first in the series, I'm going to get a copy of the second as soon as I can.

      As I said, I got mine at the supermarket for around £3.50 so bargain. Would imagine it's widely available now so you shouldn't have problem getting hold of a copy.
