From good reads..
One lavish celeb-style wedding. Four friends with very delicate secrets, all hoping to avoid them being exposed. One of the friend's unaware that the happy proceedings will be an event to remember, from a simmering secret that no one could have predicted. With no morals, taboo's or thought of destroying the special moment or a family, can the Patel's pull together to get over this life changing revelation from this strange gatecrasher and her younger sidekick?
Walking through the door of this countryside mansion, you could be mistaken that you had walked into a rich Moroccan Sheik's tent.
With a Middle Eastern theme, rich colours of deep red, orange and gold; the engagement party filled the entering guests with immediate Eastern promise. Although she managed to escape the stresses of her current situation, with the constant demands from the dominating bride-to-be, her spoilt sister, Gabrielle, Nita always had her girlfriends Amelia and Anya to pass some of the burden to, along with her new, perfect boyfriend, Yatin.
Nita is 28, half Indian and half Irish, with a down-to-earth, loving personality who is desperate to meet Mr. Right. With a doting father, strong mother and close siblings, Nita has everything she needs until her first relationship ends and she has to move back in with her parents.
Getting the break she so desperately needs, she accepts a job in the city as a secretary and moves into her parent's apartment in North London and begins to realise the single life is not so bad when you have a cut throat Russian Escort, an eccentric Fashion Buyer and your WAG wannabe sister to welcome you to this new world!
With these wild, drunken nights, enjoying the high life by accepting the invitations to all the fashion after show parties Amelia would arrange each weekend, an affair with your boss and questioning her sexuality with a co-worker, it's not surprising Nita didn't see the start of her brothers, and parent's marriage deteriorating with the arrival of this new mysterious woman!
But who was she? Why did she have a strong affect on her father? And how was her brother connected to her immoral revelations?
