Sinatra's Charlie Reader is a successful talent agent, and his success is mirrored in his apartment facing the 59th Street Bridge in Manhattan, and his colorful lifestyle of a different date with a different woman Celeste Holms, Lola Albright, Caroline Jones, and Jarma Lewis every night. His trade comment of "A ring-a-ding-ding" is not voiced here, but it could easily be said.
How I Heard About It: This has been on my TBR list for quite some time. For some reason I kept putting it on the back burner. I think part of me thought it was too "light" of a read and always put something else before it.
The more reviews I read about the story, I decided it was time to read it. It was actually a reading friend that was reading it over the holidays that finally convinced me to get a copy of it.
I was lucky that when I went to the library there was a copy all ready for me. What It Is About: This is not deep or "high brow" literature type story, but I think as readers we know it is alright to read a little bit of everything.
Instead this is an awesome page turner of a book that you won't be able to put down.
Lily and Ted meet at an airport where Ted tells her that he has just found out his wife is having an affair with the contractor that is working on their "mega" mansion. After chatting in the airport bar and on the flight back to Boston, they decide that his wife Miranda deserves to die.
As Ted and Lily begin to plan the murder of Miranda, Ted ends up dead himself. Both Lily and Miranda are shocked and wonder if Miranda's lover the contractor had something to do with Ted's murder. What I Thought Of It: I'm so glad I finally read this book and bummed that it took me so long to read it.
I've read some great books in the last few weeks, but I haven't read a novel that I would truly describe as a "page turner". This story starts on page one and doesn't let go until the very last word of the novel.
There were so many surprised that I had more than one "gasp" moment. I loved them all.
I wasn't sure which character was a "good" one and which one was a "bad" one. This was the perfect story to read over a cold Minnesota January weekend. Who Should Read It: Well, everyone should read this.
