“Do You Really want to marry Max and live in Germany?”
“Darling, he’s richer than God and the sex is divine.”
Author: Rhys Bowen
My mother, the glamorous and much-married actress, is hearing wedding bells once again—which is why she must hop across the pond for a quickie divorce in Reno. To offer my moral support, and since all expenses are paid by her new hubby-to-be, Max, I agree to make the voyage with her.
Crossing the Atlantic, with adventure in the air and wealthy men aboard, Mother all but forgets about Max and matrimony—especially when movie mogul Cy Goldman insists on casting her in his next picture.
Meanwhile, I find myself caught up in the secret investigation of a suspected jewel thief. Lucky for me, the lead investigator happens to be my dashing beau, Darcy!
Mother’s movie and Darcy’s larceny lead everyone to Cy’s Hollywood home, where the likes of Charlie Chaplin are hanging about and there’s enough romantic intrigue to fill a double feature. But we hardly get a chance to work out the sleeping arrangements before Cy turns up dead—as if there wasn’t enough drama already
Bluestocking’s Opinion: Boy was I glad to see this book come out!!! I love this series. I’m really enjoying the fact that Georgie is starting to spend more time with her mother. For one thing, it means that her mother actually buys her some new clothes for once. It irritated me to no end that Georgie has had to live a life of essentially poverty while her mother ran around in designer clothing spending more money than one could imagine.
I didn’t guess who the murderer was. I was completely surprised. I really thought the author was going with the spurned lover storyline.
Anyway, this was a great fun read!!!
