The Classic

Lace by Shirley Conran

Lace is one of those books that many call one of the original bonkbusters. For a lot of women, Lace was the kind of book that opened their eyes and got them hooked from the first page.

We follow Lili, a glamourous film star who summons four women from Paris, London and New York to find out a a well hidden secret. One of these women is Lili's mother.

Sex, scandal and women fighting to be successful. It completely makes sense it's been reissued for the generation who missed out on Shirley Conran's masterpiece.

The book was so popular that it went on to be turned into a movie so you know it went down well. This is one you have to read even if it's just to tick it off the list.
