Review of Diva by Carrie Duffy

Last year, Carrie Duffy’s debut novel ‘Idol’ was one of my favourite books of the year, so I couldn’t wait to read a copy of her second book ‘Diva’.

Diva follows the lives of three young women, each striving to make their own way in life.
Dionne is a feisty girl from Detroit who is determined to become a supermodel. She will let no one stand in her way – whatever the consequences.
CeCe is an aspiring fashion designer determined to be independent from her parents and be successful in the cut throat Parisien fashion world.
Alyson is the most naïve of the three and just wants to escape her upbringing when she arrives in Paris. She is beautiful and vulnerable.
All three forge a strong friendship when they share an apartment in Paris, but will their friendship stand the test of changing lifestyles and loyalties?

Diva is gripping from beginning to end and I found that I could not put it down. Duffy is a brilliant writer who makes the reader feel that they actually know the characters. As the characters embark on a glamorous, jet set lifestyle seeing places like Paris, St Tropez, London and Dubai, the reader is taken away for the ride – enjoying every little detail.

I cannot recommend this novel highly enough. Diva is fun, witty and addictive. It will take you on a journey of friendship, rivalry, loyalty and loss.
Without a doubt, this is a 5 star read!

Don’t miss out, Diva is available to buy now.

Thank you to Harper Collins for sending me a copy to review.
