The Divorce Party gives the reader a unique, insider perspective on the De Campo's glitzy Manhattan marriage. The characters of Lilly and Riccardo are outwardly glamorous but the glossy veneer hides insecurity, illness and resentment.
Lilly took drastic action to capture her sexy husband's full attention. She ran away. The couple have barely spoken in their year apart and are only meeting now because Riccardo has thrown an elaborate divorce party and Lilly must attend if she wants her divorce.
The Divorce Party captures the bitchy, superficial nature of the tabloid gossip columns and society's 'beautiful' people perfectly. Riccardo persuades Lilly to resurrect their marriage until he becomes CEO of De Campo wines. Reluctantly she agrees. Riccardo has a secret agenda which brings Lilly to breaking point.
The sensuality which binds the couple is palpable and the reason Riccardo really wants Lilly back in his life. Single minded and ruthless Ricardo ignores his effect on his wife and her emotional needs in true 'Mr Darcy' style.
Lilly is a strong, independent woman who left her home and family to become a successful physiotherapist in New York. Only the needs of her younger sister make her agree to Riccardo's ultimatum. Can she survive Riccardo's passionate nature and live the life of a trophy wife without compromising her health and self-esteem?
The Divorce Party is a poignant love story of sacrifice, secrets and love.
