Part Clueless, part Agatha Christie, this book is so much fun! Set in Oxford c.1985, Party Girls... follows Ursula Flowerbutton- a naive farm girl just starting her history degree. Ursula quickly finds herself seduced by the fashion, glamour, and pink champagne of the wealthy Oxford set. That is, until she stumbles upon the body of an Oxford It-Girl. Tasked with solving the murder for a prestigious paper, Ursula plays amateur sleuth with the help of her gauche-but-amazing American friend, Nancy. Sykes sharply evokes the fashion, music, and culture of the 1980s, creates a love-able amateur sleuth, and plots a cunning murder. This book is like a Pimms Cup on a summer day: light, refreshing, and absolutely perfect! - Sam (also HIGHLY recommended by McKenna!)
