Bel Hailstone has spent the past decade building her dream - Soho’s best burlesque club - from the ground up. But now The Martini Club is under threat and it will take everything in Bel’s power to resist encroaching developers and save her pride and joy.

Amidst the chaos Bel’s past comes knocking with the unexpected arrivals of her still-not-quite-ex-husband, her estranged mother and Brodie Porter - the boy who got away all those years ago.

To keep her beloved club afloat – not to mention her sanity - Bel will have to accept help for the first time in a long time, put the past to rest and claim the happy ever after she once thought was lost for good.

This may be the 3rd book in the series but i can easily be read as a standalone. The main characters from the previous two were far more bit parts in this, so no prior knowledge needed. 

That being said why wouldn't you want to catch up on the fabulous Martini Club before starting this one!

In this book we get to really get to know Arabella the owner of The Martini Club where in a series of coincidences all manner of blasts from the past appear. 

We get to see beneath her outer appearance and see a different side to her character, which was quite touching to read, 

Any book set in a burlesque club and featuring Martinis is always going to be a winner for me, and this is certainly an excellent addition to the series, as we see that Arabella never gives up!

Thank you to Netgalley and Canelo for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
