Anna Kennedy loves her career. A young associate with a top media law firm, she’s the lawyer to the stars, hiding their sins from the hungry media. When Anna fails to prevent a damaging story being printed about heart-throb movie star Sam Charles she finds herself fighting to save not only his reputation, but also her own. But Anna is about to uncover a scandal more explosive than even Sam’s infidelities. A party girl is already dead and those responsible are prepared to silence anyone who stands in their way. Not least a pretty young lawyer who knows too much…
I honestly don’t know what to make of this book. It was a good story, but not a page turner. Some typos and name changes (where Andrew suddenly became Andy) turned me off.
I love thick books, but sometimes authors overwrite which can make the book unenjoyable. I eventually skimmed through some chapters.
I was warned not to read the book because many people did not like the ending, but I like to be the judge. The ending was not bad and it ended the way I wanted it to. I guess readers wanted to find out what happened to Larry and his cheating wife (wasn’t it obvious?) and Sam and Jessica (I didn’t care for these two).
That being said, I don’t know if I’ll read another book from this author.
