One of Katie Agnew's favourite books.

The Queen of Glitz comes up trumps – she brings Lucky Santangelo back with a fistful of problems, both emotional and lethal. Jackie Collins no longer produces just glitz-filled glamour of old but has dished up a tale with real tension and drama. It is glorious stuff.

Comparison: Louise Bagshawe, Candace Bushnell, Tasmina Perry.

November 2009 Guest Editor Katie Agnew on JACKIE COLLINS

My absolute heroine! When I grow up I want to be Jackie Collins. Snobs may mock, but the woman is a literary genius. When I finished my English MA I was so tired of reading heavy, thought-provoking tombs. I'd just read all 643 page of Ulysses, and much as I'd appreciated Modernism, I needed a fix of Bonkbuster. Fast! I spent the summer after my Finals devouring every book she'd ever written and I've been an avid fan ever since. No irony. For me, she's right up there with Dickens and Austen. That's why Jackie has sold more than 400 million books!

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

Synopsis

Drop Dead Beautiful by Jackie Collins

The bestselling author of Lovers & Players returns with her twenty-fifth dynamic new novel and her best-loved character, Lucky Santangelo...so get ready for a scandalously wild ride!

Lucky is back with a vengeance - every bit as strong, sexy and seductive as ever. But Lucky is older and wiser now - and she's hot to reclaim her power position in Las Vegas by building a magnificent billion dollar hotel complex.

Max, Lucky's rebellious teenage daughter, is every bit as outrageous as Lucky herself. Max is hard to control, especially when she takes off to rendezvouz with a stranger she meets on the internet.

While Lucky is busy building her hotel, she is unaware that a deadly enemy from her past has surfaced. A person determined to take everything from her, including the family she holds so dear.

Internationally bestselling author Jackie Collins marks her twenty-fifth novel with another dazzling page-turner, packed with desire, sex, revenge and love.

Lucky Santangelo rules!

Reviews

“Delicious!” — John Searles, Cosmopolitan

“[F]euding families, and simmering vendettas, punctuated by lusty liaisons. One for fans of The Sopranos and Desperate Housewives. ”— The Telegraph

“ Beautiful may be the best novel starring Lucky Santangelo yet.” — Entertainment Weekly

“Collins delivers Lucky’s usual mix of celebrity fantasy and godfather justice while Max promises to grow up in future sequels as troublesome and triumphant as her glitzy mom.” — Publishers Weekly

“[Collins’s] can’t-put-it-down style and feisty drop-dead glamorous characters transport us to a beyond-fabulous world. Yet with Jackie as our guide, we feel right at home.” — Glamour

“Wry, cheeky, and outrageously entertaining.” — Michelle Buonfiglio, Lifetime TV

“Breathless.” — Kirkus Reviews
