Summary

At Timmins & Ross publishing house Samantha Clair knows she can rely on her star author Breda McManus to deliver a manuscript that will sell to the masses and pay her salary. But when Breda's latest endeavour is a complete catastrophe, it turns out to be only the first of Sam's problems.

When Sam decides to publish fashion journalist Kit Lovell's tell-all book on the death of Rodrigo Aleman, a designer at the prestigious Vernet fashion house, little does she know the dangerous trouble it will cause. Somebody out there doesn't want Kit's manuscript published and they'll do anything to stop it.

Nothing wrong with this book - but...

I started reading this as a print book from the library, but I got a bit lost in the characters. However as I was enjoying the story and wanted to find out the ending so I downloaded it as an Audible book.
I still had the same problems - too many characters, and some seemed to suddenly appear, have a major role for a few pages and then disappear, without any explanation.
The story was OK in a slightly forgettable way. I liked the background of a not very fashionable publication house and the elements about publishing, but somehow the story didn't quite ring true to me.
So in summary - nothing really wrong with the book, some excellent and funny moments, but better to buy when on offer as a light listen, rather than one to use a full credit on.

intelligent crime novel and very funny

i read the second book before this one and loved it so much i bought this. i wasnt diasappointed. very good characters and a complicated plot are the main ingredients of this book all mixed together with the very funny thoughts and actions of the lead character and a touch of romance. this combination is right up my street, i love this author.
