Not every socialite lives in the world of snobbery and grow up to represent it. Tiffany Thompson was taught from a young age to be generous and value a strong work ethic. That’s why everyone who come in contact with her falls in love with her. Todd Jameson is no different to her pure appeal. But in a word which is ruled with money and illusions, will they survive their love? Or will jealousies, greed and revenge tear them apart?
The book is a sweet novel exploring love, friendship, family and other baser human emotions. The familiarity of characters indicate towards a previous installment, however it did not detract from the plot development. The main story line of a budding romance overshadowed with revenge and greed was well played out throughout the book and gave a beautiful anti-climax that kept me captivated.
The lead characters are definitely well-sketched out in the mind of the author and it shows in the detailed narrative throughout the book. However what I liked the best in this book is the growth of the secondary character Angela who rose beyond a shallow upbringing to show a greater morality and strength. The characters helped in playing out the story to its full strength. Except few grammatical errors, there is nothing much that can be fault here.
The Title is pretty straight forward and adds to the element of intrigue that is present in the book. However, the cover image is far from justified. It does not add up with the main plot or the title that has been chosen. It gives more of a whimsical touch to the book that is not suitable.
It is a good book for a light quick read and can be finished within a day without much of a hassle.
My rating: 3.5 out of 5
