The author of Tell Me a Secret and Faking Friends leads you into the glamorous world of Stella – the Queen Bee of her exclusive neighbourhood – in this hilarious and delightfully witty story about jealousy, secrets and mixed-up love lives. Addictive, sharp and sumptuously entertaining, Queen Bee is Fallon at her unputdownable best.

The hilarious new book from the million-copy bestselling author of Faking Friends and Tell Me a Secret

Welcome to The Close - a beautiful street of mansions, where gorgeous Stella is the indisputable Queen Bee . . .

It is here that Laura, seeking peace and privacy after her marriage falls apart, rents a tiny studio. Unfortunately, her arrival upsets suspicious Stella - who fears Laura has designs on her fiance, Al.

When Laura stumbles on the big secret Al is hiding, suddenly Stella's perfectly controlled world, and Laura's future, are threatened.

Taking a chance on beating Al at his own twisted game, these two former strangers are fast becoming friends.

But has Laura forgotten that revenge always comes with a sting in the tail?
