Keri reviewed Drop Dead Beautiful (Lucky Santangelo, Bk 6) on
Helpful Score: 1
Lucky Santangelo Golden is back and building a monstrous 6 billion dollar hotel in Vegas. There are more than a few people who want to see her fail and are going to try and see that she does. Jackie Collins can't write fast enough for me. I devour her books in almost one sitting.
Pretty good book. Typical Jackie Collins novel...sex, deception, glamour, action, and murder. Ah the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Lol! The book was a little repetitive at times, but half way through I realized I was glued to it. I've only read two Jackie Collins books now and I will say they are a guilty pleasure. The only problem I have with them is, that there always seems to be one story line that seems unnecessary until the end. Then those characters seem to help tie up the other (better) story lines. Alex and Ling pointless until the end and only because she dropped her gun! though Max was kind of a bore too!
If you are a fan of Jackie Collins, then you will like this book. It's written in her typical fashion with wealthy and poor, sane and insane characters, with lots of different stories that all intermingle and culminate at or near the end. Gave it 4 stars.
From Miami to Beverly Hills, from Mexico City to Acapulco to Las Vegas, dynamically sexy Lucky Santangelo and her sweet-as-sin daughter, Max, are turning up the heat. And so is Anthony Bonar, the illegitimate son of her onetime godfather and lethal enemy, Enzio Bonnatti. Lucky is preparing for the opening of her multibillion-dollar hotel complex in Las Vegas, the Keys, but Bonar-a vicious killer-is out to stop her any way he can.
Meanwhile sixteen-year-old Max has run off to Big Bear to hook up with a man she's been corresponding with on the Internet. But instead of the man she thought she was meeting, he turns out to be a vengeful predator with a long-standing grudge against Lucky and Billy Melina, the twenty-eight-year-old studly movie star who is currently the boyfriend of Luckys' best friend, Venus.
Get ready for a nonstop thrill ride as Lucky goes for broke to build her dream resort-and faces down a deadly threat to all she holds dear. Max, too, is following her dreams, and her high-flying triumps prove, she's more than just a little Lucky.
