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.
Firstly I’d like to thank Canelo for inviting me to take part in this blog tour.
I’m a huge fan of the Martini club series. The first instalment was one of the first books I reviewed.
A.L.Michaels has an amazing ability to create characters with depth that make you feel as if you know them personally.
In Martinis & Memories some of the characters from the other two books make an appearance which is lovely as it was like revisiting old friends. Although this is the third in the series it can be read as a stand-alone book. All three books have completely different settings and focus on a character that only has a small part in the rest of the series.
I enjoyed Martinis & Memories as Bel has always been a bit of a mysterious character, so to find out her background was great.
If you haven’t already discovered The Martini Club, I urge you to do so. The characters and places jump out of the pages at you and if you close you’re eyes you can almost imagine you’re there!
5* review from me!
