Synopsis (from amazon)
Married call girl Nancy Chan has been asked to do something outrageous – even by her standards.
Most favoured customer Milt has invited Nancy to his luxurious new villa in idyllic Provence. That’s a lot of euros, but …
Can a (married) Manhattan call girl really holiday with a client? Seeing him morning, noon and night, coming up with new entertainments, and maintaining both a light tan and
a ‘professional’ distance? Not to mention Milt’s Viagra habit. In a difficult economic climate a girl can’t always meet her quota, and Nancy’s worried about losing her edge.
Nancy jumps at the chance to have a break from Manhattan (and from husband Matt) for a few weeks. Desperate for an alibi, she invents a vacation with her mom in southern France. In reality, Nancy is hard at work with some new playmates – Tini (Malaysian, with something extra), Isabel (a St-Tropez madam), and Serge (Isabel’s hunky chauffeur) – while Matt grows more inquisitive. As Nancy discovers, the French countryside is ‘ten times trickier than Manhattan’ and nothing in her temporary world is quite what it seems.
When Milt’s enigmatic cook Duncan turns up unexpectedly in Nancy’s erotic fantasies, she begins questioning everything she knows. Can Nancy keep getting away with this?
Having read the first Nancy Chan novel as a teenager, and the second in 2009 I’ve had Diary of a Jetsetting Call Girl on my wishlist for quite some time. When I saw it in The Works I considered the Wishlist Challenge and thought, why not?
In comparison with the other Nancy Chan novels it was a bit racier than I had remembered. Obviously if it’s a book about a Call Girl you expect at least some sex but I’m sure there was less in the other books.
The plot was rather different from the other two as well. A bit less realistic, a few too many coincidences.
I did rather enjoy it however. It was an easy read, and had a bit more kick than your standard chick-lit.
