Lucy Lord is a journalist who has written for a number of publications (including the Times, Guardian, Independent, Evening Standard, Time Out and Arena) about some very important stuff (including a Glastonbury survival guide, the best beach bars in Ibiza and hangover cures). She hardly ever regrets her decision not to become a war correspondent. She lives in central London with her musician husband.
Revelry, her first novel, is the story of a hedonistic and glamorous group of friends as they flit from Glastonbury to London to Ibiza over one long, hot summer. The novel was published by HarperCollins in June 2012, the sequel Vanity was published in January 2013. The third and final installment, Treachery, will follow in 2014.

One summer can change everything… What happens when a friend breaks the one rule that should never be broken? Best friends Bella and Poppy are living the dream – Notting Hill glamour, Shoreditch lofts, exclusive parties and drop-dead gorgeous men. But sometimes living life to the max catches up with you, and even the strongest friendships can be pushed to the limit. Poppy, Bella and their friends spend the summer having as much fun as they possibly can – from the hedonistic escapades of Ibiza to doing Glastonbury in style. But amongst the laughter come tears, betrayal and backstabbing and one devastating decision threatens to bring it all crashing down. And, once the sunglasses have come off, Bella is forced to question if her lifelong friendship has been broken beyond repair. The perfect escapist read, Revelry will have you laughing, crying and gasping with shock.

Following on from Lucy Lord’s brilliant debut novel, Revelry, comes Vanity. Oozing with sex, wild partying and scandal join Bella and best friend Poppy as they continue to navigate the world of being young, fun and (almost) carefree.
Glamorous Poppy seems to have it all, and after a long tough year she is damn well going to enjoy it. But as Poppy’s career in New York goes from strength to strength, her husband, Damian’s takes a nosedive and she begins to wonder if love really can survive anything.
In London, Poppy’s best friend Bella is basking in that new-couple glow with her boyfriend Andy. But, not everything is as perfect as it seems, and Bella can’t help but be a little jealous of her best friend’s Big Apple adventures. Meanwhile, their arch-nemesis, shallow but beautiful Ben, is in Hollywood to make his name on the silver screen, and annoyingly, is doing rather well at it!
From St Tropez to New York, LA to the impossibly chic Paris; join Bella and Poppy and their friends as they face the reality of friendships pushed to the limits, and embark on a road trip that they’ll never forget…
