‘Did she really just say that? I am fifteen again,except the reality is
I am experiencing full parental horror, aged twenty-five.
I want to die.’
Life hasn’t quite worked out how Arielle Lockley imagined it would. Becoming the next Coco Chanel was always her childhood dream, but she’s spent the past four years living a dizzying whirl of glitzy parties, luxurious holidays and daily shopping sprees – all paid for by boyfriend Piers – and not doing anything to make her Coco dreams happen. When the recession hits, it’s not just the economy that takes a tumble and Arielle finds herself living back with her parents, on bad terms with Piers, and having a CV that’s as welcome as a pair of knock-off Jimmy Choos. And maybe it’s the location, but she’s also finding unwelcome thoughts of her childhood sweetheart are popping into her head… What’s a girl to do?
Can Arielle figure out what it is she now wants to do with her life and move on, or will she be doomed to spend the rest of her life dwelling over her worst mistakes, stuck listening to her parents’ embarrassing dinner table talk each night?

Praise for Kept
“Quirky, original chick lit with brilliant characters and a fab heroine. I really enjoyed the author’s writing style and loved that the story didn’t end up going where I was expecting… Highly recommend this and looking forward to reading more from Ms Field. ”
~ Shalini Boland, Author
Kept will appeal to readers of chick-lit and I felt that it had a similar feel to some of Marian Keyes’ early books. I think that Elle Field is one to watch out for and I would definitely read her next book.”
