Advantages: Expect the unexpected
Disadvantages: Not everyone will enjoy reading it.
After reading many of Tilly Bagshawe's books, I decided I might give her sister's (Lousie Bagshawe) books a go. On the cover Cosmoplitan quoted "If a novel were a glass of champagne, this would be it". So out of all the other Louise Bagshawe books, this one won the vote of being placed into my basket simply because it has been highly appraised and expected the same standard of writing skills as her sister. And after reading the book, I started to understand why this book was compared to a glass of champagne....
The image of this book looks glamorous without too much accessories, with a woman lying on a hammock, with a sunset background alongside two tropical trees, and the title "Glitz" all glittered and glammed up for that perfect chic-flick!
Four girls, two sets of sisters, related as cousins. One set of sisters (Diana and Venus) do not have any parents due to a car crash and live at boarding school, while the other set of sisters (Juno and Athena) have a basic life growing up with mum and dad in a loving family home even if they don't have as much as everyone else. Then, out of the blue, an uncle appears from nowhere and they live life to the full with the half a million pounds each given every year. With no worries about money since then, they started to get too comfortable with finacial situations and enjoy to throw big parties and take each and every oppurtunity for granted. And since they they are all known famously as the "Chamber Girls".
Then, all of a sudden, Uncle Clem finds himself wanting to settle down with someone who is half his age and she wants the Chamber girls' trust-fund money to be stopped by the time of the big white wedding. The girls are at risk of losing everything they live their lives to, unless they can pull together and form a plan to keep what the currently have before it's too late.
Will the Chamber girls sail away through their plan successfully or will they have obstacles along the way? Does Uncle Clem find problems that started to arise to delay things? Or will the Chamber Girls find an alternative way of getting their hands on wealth by standing on their own two feet?
What will the end of the story tell?..... It's time to bring on the glitz!
-Who it's for-
This book is definatly for all those women who love chic flick and enjoys being suprised with whatever Louise Bagshawe decides to make her characters do.... I personally enjoyed it for pure relaxation before bed time but the thrill and ecitement can build up to the extend where you can't simply can't put the book down.

Summary: Expect the unexpected with Louise Bagshawe as suprises wait around the corner.
