I am a new reader of Tilly Bagshawe, and as always, when I'm reading a write for the first time I am very sceptic. Amd I always compare, in this case to Jackie Collins, but I think there is not a lot to compare, although both of the ladies are writing about Hollywood. At the beginning I thought I won't get into this book: Romania, orphans, and that all of the characters were connected somehow with these things, it was strange to me and not too possible. But the further I read the more interested I became. Although there are not many dialogues for my liking, there is not one word too many in this book, everything is in a perfect place, one thing leads to another or is a result of other thing. The characters are brilliant, although I was not too deep in love with Viorel I must admit:) For me he was the weakest hero in this book, a baby boy. Can't say that I was very happy with one of the endings, but well, Christmas is just once in a year:)Actually, I didn't find any clichees in this book although it was about Hollywood and film stars, and on the other hand - about Romania and situation of orphans there. To be honest, the latest didn't suit to this book for me, it was a little too exagerrated, not too real compared to the fleshes and papparazzis... I know it is very important and real, but perhaps Tilly Bagshawe should think about something different. But anyway, it was an excellent read and for sure it's not the last book of this author that I'm going to read.
