"Suspense fans looking for frothy, wacky fun will be well rewarded." (Publishers Weekly)
This was a waste of a credit. I did not get beyond chapter 3. Half of the dialogue is about brand names. If you want to describe someone's outfit, tell me the cut or length of the dress. I don't have to know that it's Chanel. The writing was cheesy and unrealistic. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
I am fairly intrigued by the story, but the author's relentless dropping of names and brands that are supposed to impress is nauseating!! It is sophmoric and completely unnecessary to the plot. I would have stopped listening, but I want to reach the end. Puhleeze refrain in your next book from describing every item with a designer/ brand that is only enjoyed by the elite in this country. It diminishes your work.
