Queen Bee is full of characters that you’ll either love or hate. That’s the key to a brilliant book – and Jane Fallon is great at constructing characters that you either want to boost up or tear down. There were some great twists in this book which kept it refreshingly unique and a different kind of contemporary fiction. This will make a great Summer read for 2020!
