This book started out great but then slowly dwindled. I liked the frail character of Annie Lang, her struggles at the academy and her head over heels romance with Johnny the tenant. It had potential.

But then nothing happened... Annie - though now a TV series star - remained unchanged and was the same person she was, when she was 16 years old. And all of the other characters acted more or less at random.

I liked this book regardless of the reviews it got. This book may have had its flaws but nonetheless I liked it a lot...

This book was written in 1995. I think I've had it since about that time. It's moved from one state to another, one home to another over the last 14 years. Not sure why it's taken me this long to finally pick it up. I guess I have too many books to read. The pages are even yellowed, ha!

Before writing my review, I always like to read other goodreaders reviews. There were only a few to my surprise. Then I dug a little deeper and I discovered Charlotte Lamb also wrote Harlequin books, ahhhhhh!!! Pr

I feel horrible about this. I really do. But I cheated. And this is something I never do. Yes, I cheated. About halfway through I read the last couple of sentences of this book. So I knew whodunit. I knew who the woman was who lured away Derek. I knew exactly who the fingers pointed to. And yet I kept on reading. Still felt the need to tidy up all the little details. Was it worth it? Do I feel justified in my cheating? Maybe a little. Maybe I never would have finished this book without cheating. ...more

A card from a secret admirer seems to answer her prayers, but the truth is far more sinister.[return]Reasonable, british based thriller, of Annie becoming a famous TV actress (On a show very similar to The Bill), but who is haunted by her past. Soon she realises she is the target of a sinister attack from person/persons unknown.[return][retur ...more

I enjoyed this novel though there were a couple of things that annoyed me. For example there was quite a lot of repetition, the amount of times that it is said that Annie Lang doesn't wear much makeup and prefers the natural look is mentioned multiple times. I feel that the characters are developed well enough at the beginning and that there was too much repetition of the characters attributes later in the novel.

The book was enjoyable though, the characters were likable enough and the plot was i

I got over half way through the book but just couldn't go any further. The heroine was nearly always traumatised by something or other. She lived under her mother's thumb, and didn't get out of the habit of being passive up until the point I put the book down.

I need strong characters, especially if they're main ones.

Well it was better written than the synopsis and had a twist which I really should have seen but didn't. Enough suspense for me to read the last quarter of the book in one sitting but not one of the greats. It was a good holiday read.

A fast read - a thriller that was a bit....much. The characters were not terribly believable, and the suspense was slow, but not bad.
