Blog Tour: Keeping Up with the Kershaws

What do you do when your life becomes more dramatic than reality TV?

As the devoted carer for famous antique expert Harold Kershaw, Karrie Morgan was always happy to keep a professional distance from his four spoilt grown-up children, who rarely made time for their father. But then a surprise involving Harold’s Will means Karrie is flung headlong into a press scandal, and into the chaotic world of the surviving Kershaws.

With the support of her trusted childhood friend Andrew, mild-mannered Karrie must face down ruthless ice queen Portia, master manipulator Gabriel, Botox fanatic Arabella, and ladies’ man Rafe, star of reality TV show Raised in Richmond … although perhaps not as fake and flashy as he initially seems?

As vicious rumours circulate and Karrie’s past comes back to haunt her, she struggles to know who to trust. Can she keep up with the Kershaws’ schemes?

What I Thought:

In Keeping Up with the Kershaws, Helen Buckley returns to the world of showbiz, privilege and scandal and introduces a trule detestable family!

On the death of antiques expert Harold Kershaw, his devoted carer Karrie Morgan is pitched against his neglectful children over a sizeable inheritance. Claws and dirty tricks are fully out, but will Karrie be able to stand firm with these spoiled rich kids, when they have lawyers galore and she has her only friend in her corner?

I very much enjoyed this book as we had a glimpse into the world of privilege and fame, but the entitled family in this book don’t have things all their own way.

Karrie was a great character – caring and quiet next to the very loud Kershaw family, but with a hidden core of steel, she was a good foil for them, although her connection with Rafe was an interesting wrinkle in the plot.

Although this book can be read as a standalone, it is part of Helen Buckley’s Spotlight series, featuring in the lives of the rich and famous. I particularly liked the fact that she made subtle references to the other books in the series throughout – these little titbits encouraged me to read more of the books, so I’ll be starting with Strictly on Ice!

The romantic part of the plot is a very slow burn, but has an incredibly satisfying conclusion and I defy you not to finish this book with a smile on your face…

Keeping Up with the Kershaws is published by ChocLit.
