"Did she really just say that? I am fifteen again, except the reality is I am experiencing full parental horror, aged twenty-five. I want to die."
Life hasn't quite worked out how Arielle Lockley imagined it would. Becoming the next Coco Chanel was always her childhood dream, but she's spent the past four years living a dizzying whirl of glitzy parties, luxurious holidays and daily shopping sprees - all paid for by boyfriend Piers - and not doing anything to make her Coco dreams happen.
When the recession hits, it's not just the economy that takes a tumble and Arielle finds herself living back with her parents, on bad terms with Piers, and having a CV that's as welcome as a pair of knock-off Jimmy Choos. And maybe it's the location, but she's also finding unwelcome thoughts of her childhood sweetheart are popping into her head...
What's a girl to do? Can Arielle figure out what it is she now wants to do with her life and move on, or will she be doomed to spend the rest of her life dwelling over her worst mistakes, stuck listening to her parents' embarrassing dinner table talk each night?
Praise for Kept:
"Absolutely brilliant! A light, funny, down to earth, refreshing read. Cannot wait until the next installment!" ~ Dawn (Goodreads review)
"This book was awesome - cant believe it is a debut novel. Well written and instantly engaging. Would definitely recommend if you like reading Sophie Kinsella or Lisa Jewell." ~ sbdoll (Amazon.co.uk review)
"Absolutely loved this debut effort from Elle Field. A great read for those who love to get lost in the crazy world of the female protagonist. If you love Sophie Kinsella, then you'll love this too. Cannot wait to find out more about Arielle's adventures, and for Elle's second book in the Autumn. The only downside - there wasn't more of it! I wanted to keep reading. Will definitely be recommending to others." ~ Miss N. J. Lloyd (Amazon.co.uk review) [close]
