Quite a good read! This was my first time reading Jackie Collins. Mass-producing authors can be hit-and-miss sometimes, but from what I’ve read here, she’s one of the good ones.
There are numerous perspectives, but I had all the characters straight in my head despite this book being 4th in the series. All characters had surprisingly decent depth considering the ‘shallowness’ of many of their personalities. The story was good. There were no real slow bits, which is hard to do at 600 pages. Lots of ‘naughtiness’, which I enjoyed. The romances were believable and fun. The writing itself was very easy to read and well thought out.
I’ll admit, this is not my kind of story. I don’t particularly enjoy reading about the rich and famous and their sordid lives. However, I like to think that despite my tastes I know a good story when I read one.
A talented author and a fun lady who clearly cared for and worked hard at her stories, and yet managed not to take herself or her work too seriously.
May she rest in peace.
