Queen Bee by Nina Manning

5 Stars from me

This was a most enjoyable foray into the lives of the inhabitants of the picturesque village of Helesbury.

Miranda is the newbie and current queen of the village, having recently moved in from London and with the whiff of having been ‘someone’ evident in her every footstep, handbag, hairdo and perfect family. But is there a shadow of a secret lurking their too?

Miranda’s status as Queen Bee looks set to be rocked by the arrival of Verity onto the village scene. This quiet and ostensibly unassuming new comer unsettles Miranda and seems hell bent on stealing her best friend.

Now, don’t be fooled into thinking this is a cosy little domestic drama – it is far from it – there are many secrets behind closed doors and Nina Manning reveals them in little teases as the story unfolds.

Loved it!

Blurb: In the quiet village of Helesbury, Miranda Wallace prides herself on being the most popular member of her small social circle; the perfect friend, the best mum – the queen bee.

Until one day, Verity arrives. Cool and indifferent, Verity is everything Miranda isn’t, but she threatens to shatter Miranda’s picture-perfect life.

Suddenly plagued with insecurities, Miranda is certain Verity is hiding something. And Miranda knows all about secrets and the damage they can cause, because she’s hiding some of her own.

So when Verity threatens to reveal the truth about Miranda and destroy the perfect life she’s built, Miranda knows she has to act to protect the people she loves – even if the results are deadly.
