It\'s My Party

It's My Party

(1999)
A novel by

 
Everyone plays their cards close to their chests in It's My Party, a hard and fast look at the equally competitive worlds of business, gambling and love. Cindy Blake's heroine Isabel is a successful business woman by day and an indomitable poker player by night. But when it comes to love, she's afraid to lay her cards on the table; as is everyone in this riotous comedy of errors.

Isabel fell in love with David when she was just a gawky teenage bridesmaid; now he's her married business partner and seemingly unattainable. David's brother Peter befriends Stryker, Isabel and David's gorgeous business rival, only to be hit by Eros's arrow. But Stryker has fallen harder than a deck of cards for the charms of a gorgeous girl who plays at his local casino most nights. No prizes for guessing who! Soon the pair are competing for real as Stryker's events company begins swiping clients from Isabel and David's business. Isabel vows to beat Stryker at his own game and all-out war is waged. In love, like gambling, they discover one must risk all to win.

Like any good poker player, Ms Blake doesn't show all her cards until the final flourish so don't be deterred by the seeming alacrity with which bonds and crushes are formed. The author has enough surprises up her sleeves to keep you guessing and all is most certainly not how it seems:
"Now that you're my newest best friend--by the way, you are my newest best friend, aren't you? ... The way I see it is: David falls in love with you, divorces Jenny and the pair of you party together into the sunset".
--Nicola Perry
