Release Date: October 8th, 2015

Rating: 4/5

This is definitely a story where one event leads to another and eventually to love, a mystery to solve and some exotic locations to visit! The hero is Thomas Cleary, a young journalist from a small town who is in awe when first invited to a dinner party which gives him unexpected access to the elite of Hollywood society. This thrusts him into a new world of Bel-Air mansions, private jets and opportunities he’d only dreamed of, including meeting the possible love of his life.

This is an exploration of hidden relationships, difficult secrets and loving adventures, love found, love lost and then potentially still there to be found again, if only….. The descriptions of locations and interactions are vivid, bringing them and the characters to dramatic life in the imagination of the reader. As more is revealed so the mystery thickens until finally all is understood and misunderstandings cause even more problems. The writing flows like a river, carrying the reader on a journey full of rubble filled rapids, sudden waterfalls and interludes of calm.

An charming, handsome and charismatic sleuth, a damsel in distress, dramatic settings and secrets all essential ingredients for this intriguing mystery.

Thanks to the publishers for providing a paperback ARC of this novel for me to read in exchange for this, my honest review.
