Who’s who in the Arielle Lockley series:
The Arielle Lockley series is a four book coming of age chick lit series that’s set mainly in London and New York City. Kept, Lost and Found are told from Arielle’s perspective, whilst B-Side is a grittier spin-off book that is told from the perspective of Etta. Here’s who’s who in the series:
Arielle Lockley is the heroine of the series. Originally from the New Forest, Arielle is an only child, though she was always close to Obélix Thomas, her next-door neighbour when she was growing up. After studying at the University of Warwick, Arielle moves to London. Here she meets Piers Bramley and sets aside her dream of becoming the next Coco Chanel. Changes in her circumstances, however, see Arielle revisit that dream. The series focuses on Arielle’s transition from being a “kept” woman to a businesswoman, as well as her relationship with boyfriend, Piers.
Managing millions of pounds every day means Piers Bramley has never had to worry about money. So, if Arielle is happy spending her days shopping and going to spas, Piers is happy... until he has a major health scare and finally starts to question whether Arielle’s life should be about more than just spending his money.
Felicity Farrell is the owner of Flick’s, a boutique in Bournemouth that’s struggling. With a dramatic and colourful past – from fleeing war-torn London during the Second World War, to becoming a hippie in San Francisco – Flick, as she’s affectionately known, would do anything for her nearest and dearest. She’s also keeping a secret that’s going to send her loved ones world’s crashing down, but first she wants to do all she can to turn their lives around.
With a big passion and voice for jazz, Etta Millhouse hasn’t had the easiest childhood. Now, as an adult, she’s got two big problems: the addiction she won't admit to, and her godmother’s secret that is tearing her apart. Balancing her musical ambitions with keeping this secret sees Etta dangerously reaching for just one more pick-me-up… And then another. And then one more.
Growing up surrounded by roaming ponies in the New Forest is what influenced the broad-shouldered, red-haired Obélix Thomas to want to become a vet. Filthy-minded and funny, Ob is the best friend we’d all love to have, though that position belongs firmly to Arielle. Now, if only Ob can find someone to settle down with, like Arielle has settled down with Piers...
Owner of Tabi’s, the popular bar-cafe-club on the King’s Road, Tabitha-Rose Cuthbert-Nightingale is as posh as she sounds. A successful businesswoman from a titled family, Tabitha is hounded by the press because of her family connection and finds it hard to trust people not to sell her out... Arielle is slowly earning her trust though.
