'A very 21st Century blockbuster, this has all the classic elements - nailbiting narrative, absorbing relationships, glamorous locations - with an extra shot of intelligence' COSMOPOLITAN

Take four friends...

Rianne: beautiful, wealthy and thoroughly spoilt, she has the world at her feet but is about to risk everything.

Gabrielle: intelligent, loyal and always worrying about everyone else, now it's time for her to start looking after No.1.

Nathalie: petite, pretty and with a shrewd eye for business, she uses her work to help her forget the one man she can't have.

Charmaine: flirty and outrageous, she knows all about the good life. She just needs someone to pay for it...

Then a chance encounter changes everything - and for Rianne and her friends, nothing is going to be the same again...

Review:

'A very 21st-century blockbuster, this has all the classic elements - nail-biting narrative, absorbing relationships, glamorous locations - with an extra shot of intelligence...Much more than a coming-of-age tale, this creates a glamorous and exciting world that is so contemporary and convincing you'll feel like a special fifth member of their group' COSMOPOLITAN 'With its Tequila Sunrise-coloured cover, this seems to promise some sort of antidote to the misery of dark winter evenings. It is best described as a sort of Blockbuster Plus - in this case, plus a little bit more intelligence and social and political grip than is normal...Agreeably glamorous and pageturning' DAILY MAIL 'Tremendous fun and scarily readable' THE BOOKSELLER 'In this big-hearted women's read, four women forge friendships across continents' -- Andrea Henry DAILY MIRROR 'This is an absolute treat of a read set in the uber-chic worlds of modelling, politics and international corporations and set against the glamorous backdrops of London, Los Angeles, Johannesburg and Martinque. If this sexy and intelligent debut is anything to go by, Lesley Lokko is set to be a big thing in contemporary lit' DAILY RECORD 'This bumper tale with a political spin tells the story of four very different women who met while at boarding school, and the friendship that binds them together' 3-Stars WOMAN'S OWN 'Four girls meet at boarding school, forming a bond that lasts into adulthood. With glamorous characters this blockbuster is a bit trashy, but its a juicy read' HEAT 'I enjoyed it hugely, not only because it is a rattling good read but because it's so refreshingly wonderfully unpretentious...I'm looking forward to her next one already' -- Wendy Holden SUNDAY EXPRESS 'Make way Jackie Collins - there's an exciting new writer on the block. (Sundowners) has glamour, forbidden love and exotic locations. What more could you ask for?' BELLA 'Lesley Lokko's debut novel is a tumultous mix; romance meets rites of passage drama meets political incursion' THE LIST (Glasgow & Edinburgh) 'Are you fed up with contemporary commercial fiction? Do you yearn for those '80s sex and shopping blockbusters, featuring the super rich bitch? If so, you'll love 'Sundowners', a first novel from Lesley Lokko..an entertaining read with a dollop of intellect' -- Sue Leonard IRISH EXAMINER
