Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Jackie is the Queen of the Hollywood glitz novel, so popular a decade ago but then tastes changed and the genre went out of fashion, so professional Jackie changed too. She still portrays ultra-rich, glitz lives of power and decadence, but now adds murder … Good move Jackie.

Similar this month: None.
Comparison: Sidney Sheldon, Candace Bushnell, Louise Bagshawe.

If you like Jackie Collins you might also like to read books by Sidney Sheldon, Candace Bushnell and Benjamin Svetkey.

Synopsis

Lovers and Players by Jackie Collins

Amy Scott-Simon, a young New York heiress, is engaged to marry Max Diamond, an older powerful real estate tycoon. At her bachelorette party, she runs into Jett, Max's younger half-brother who is fresh back from Italy, where he is a successful male model. They have no idea who each other are. A one night fling leads to complications and regrets. Meanwhile, Chris Diamond -- a hot L.A entertainment lawyer -- flies into town to meet with his two brothers and Red Diamond, the boys' dysfunctional billionaire father.

Working as Red's housekeeper is Diahann, whose stunning bi-racial nineteen-year-old daughter, Liberty, does not approve of her mother's occupation. As Liberty pursues the dreams her mother once had, to sing, Damon P. Donnell, married hip-hop mogul supreme, pursues her.

And then there is Mariska, Max's Russian socialite ex-wife, a woman with more secrets than anyone, secrets that ultimately lead to her brutal and mysterious murder.

As the lives of these characters intertwine, power, love, sex, money and fame are the ties that bind in this highly charged love story about family relationships, deadly choices and dangerous sex.
