Overview

"Which one of you bitches is my mother?"

Four elegant, successful, and sophisticated women in their forties are called to New York's Pierre Hotel to meet Lili — a beautiful, young, and notoriously temperamental Hollywood movie star. None of the women knows exactly why she is there; each has a reason to hate Lili and each of them is astonished to see the others. They are old friends who share a guilty secret and who have for years been doing their best to keep that secret quiet. Their lives are changed forever, however, when Lili suddenly confronts them. When the women refuse to answer her, Lili proceeds to travel around the world through the playgrounds of the rich and famous, seeking to answer the question that has obsessed and almost destroyed her.

From Paris to London, from the boardroom to the bedroom, Lace takes the reader into the rarified world of five unforgettable women who are as beautiful, as complex and as strong as...lace.

Editorial Reviews

Helen Fielding
"Lace gave me prolonged pleasure."
From the Publisher
Lace is glamorous careers...movie stars, Greek shipping magnates, French and British aristocrats, Arabian royalty, and mind-boggling sex.... Rapture!"

“More than just a racy tale…Most of all, in contrast to its modern-day equivalent, the bland Fifty Shades of Grey and its sado-masochism by numbers, Lace is exuberantly, fabulously over-the-top.”

"Lace gave me prolonged pleasure."

"A high-paced, globe-trotting novel...crammed with exotic locations, high-pressure career decisions and loads of sex."

    Awsome!

    This book was very good! Although at some parts it was a little stale. I would reccommend this book to anyone who loves romance, adventure, and mysteriuous circumstances all rolled into 1 book. READ IT!

    You'll Be Up All Night

    This is one of the hardest books to put down. Following the story of four friends from a European finishing school, each very different, you are sure to indentify with one, if not all. So touching at times, the tears fall. Although this was turned into a TV-mini series, read the book first.

    Unexpected....Very Good

    I read this book in the early '80's, and I found it to be a great read...so good I couldn't put it down...I finished in 1 1/2 days. I often recommend good books that I've read to family and friends...yes this was one of them.
