Young and aspiring TV presenter Olivia is totally focused on grooming her fledgling career and image, part of which is her perma-tanned, bodybuilding boyfriend, Robert. One morning she discovers he's gone AWOL around the same nanosecond as her several million euro trust fund, which, funnily enough, was about the same time as her doting "wealth management" father, Charlie Fitzgibbon, disappeared. Her mother, Shelley, appears to have lost a husband, not to mention face. It's all gone: the the villa in Cap Ferrat, the art collection, the jewels, the botox. Thank goodness she still has her other super rich friends to turn to, and, of course, she still has the family home . . . or does she? Charlie's loyal and long term mistress, career woman Caroline, thought she knew her man inside out, but she's about to discover she's lost more than a lover. For starters her stylish penthouse and pension fundand worst of all, she wasn't the only other woman in his life.

This is an interesting book to read. The way the author narrate the story with its main character tell their side of story in each chapter is very unique and is very well written. The book basically tells the story of the aftermath dissappearance of Charlie; on how Shelley and their kids deal with his absence, and having to stay with his mother; Vera. There was subplot in the main story where Caroline, supposely to be Charlie's mistress keeps her presence known and the other women with a kid; Annika whom Charlie choose to be. At first, i really thought Charlie is a playboy what with Caroline and Annika in the picture and the way their story was told by themselves in the chapter, one would not have resist but assume on their real relationship. ;)Overall, i find this book very exciting to read and the author's writing refreshing!
