Book Review:

Becky Bloomwood returns and how!
I must mention at the outset that this is the only Kinsella book I read that ended on a cliffhanger of sorts. Usually, she wraps it up beautifully, with no loose ends or disheartening gaps.

She moved away from that here. I don't get it - why change a good thing? So many of us love this series, of course we will always continue to read these. You needn't put in cliffhangers for the heck of it, yeah?

Like I'm not even kidding, you have to start the next book immediately. I am actually glad I read this book only now, when I could get to the next one asap - I don't know how I would have felt otherwise.

The basic premise of this book is how Becky got kinda carried away by Hollywood and her quest for fame, when Luke moves them all to LA for his work. She makes a few mistakes, takes a few wrong decisions, basically alienating her friends and family. But eventually, Becky being Becky, is set straight. She is essentially a good person, if sometimes misguided. Self-realization strikes and she went back on the straight path soon enough.

Of course after this, the course of the next book is set from there on, so it's not as much of a wrap up as it could have been. I don't know, maybe this is nagging at me more than it should.

As always, I adore Minnie.
