This May 2018: Ally Bunbury returns with a whirl of romance, wealth, lust and deception in a tale replete with the ‘delicious escapism’ she served up in her bestselling debut, The Inheritance.

Weary of her over-privileged life in London, Elodie Gold is struggling with a self-indulgent mother and a control freak boyfriend. With her artistic dreams going up in smoke, Elodie is tempted to hop into bed with Luke Hampton, a heavenly American in hot pursuit. But fate has other ideas and an unexpected event compels Elodie to bolt to Bellamore, her grandfather’s mansion in the Irish countryside. But times have changed at Bellamore. Once a shrine to tradition and elegance, the house is now a crumbling world of romantic deceit and guilty secrets. How did it come to this? And can Elodie turn it around?

Ally Bunbury was brought up with her three sisters, and a menagerie of animals, in County Monaghan. Following a serendipitous encounter at a dinner party, Ally landed a dream internship with a PR agency on New York's Fifth Avenue, which, in turn, led to a flourishing career in London, Paris and Dublin. Ally lives in County Carlow with her husband, the historian, Turtle Bunbury and their two daughters, Jemima and Bay.
