Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves scandal, celebrity secrets, and murder into an explosive novel of Hollywood almost too wicked not to be true: the story of a legendary actress who knows too much - and the woman she's chosen to reveal it all....

Eve Benedict is the kind of subject who could make any biographer's career. Last of the movie goddesses, she has two Oscars, four ex-husbands, and a legion of lovers, both famous and infamous. Now she is ready to write a tell-all memoir that has even Hollywood's richest and most powerful worried.

Julia Summers never dreamed of being chosen to tell Eve's story. But even if it means transplanting herself and her ten-year-old son from their quiet life in Connecticut to the withering limelight of Beverly Hills, it's an opportunity too great to pass up. But Julia never imagined how far someone would go to keep Eve Benedict's book from being published... until she discovers just how dark Eve's secrets are. And the one man Julia hopes she can trust - Eve's stepson, Paul Winthrop - may have the most to gain if his stepmother's story is never told... and if Julia's life ends before she can write a word of the truth.

    Story
    "Slow moving, Out-dated, Not a great payout."

    First thing to know is though the release date is 11/14, the actual book was written in 1991. Everyone smokes, people are going to be on the Carson show, they record things on cassettes and VCRs. I'm of an age it doesn't matter that much.

    The second thing is the book is nineteen hours long, and it's not for plot twists - it's a need for editing. The entire first installment (9 hours) is back story, consisting mostly of Hollywood gossip and scandal. While the gossip is about fictional celebrities, there is a lot of discussion of actual films and celebrities of the Brando/Turner/Davis "golden age."

    Regarding the narrator - I don't know how much of the plodding of the first half is about her pacing, or whether she suffered from the content she had to read, but it is bothersome that all the male characters sound exactly the same, even when it's mentioned one has a British accent.

    It was pretty late in the book that I guessed the killer, but considering the murder didn't happen until the tenth hour of listening, I'm not sure that's saying much..

    That said, it wasn't horrible or annoying, but it's not one I'm planning to listen to again and again. I have to give it a resounding, "Meh."

    Story
    "Good"
    What did you love best about Genuine Lies?

    Overall it was a excellent read. The story, chacters and narrator was good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes! Usually I can figure out the "who" but it wasn't until the last several chapters did I focus on the person.


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I wouldn't have attempted a 20 hour book from an unknown. Joyce Bean is one of my favorite narrators.

    "Kept me guessing!"

    I listen to books as i drive to and from work. The story was very entertaining and suspenseful so much so I missed my exit on two different occasions. Most times I figure out who the bad guy is but not this time. Great Read!!!
