But--even that can't excuse this book. I don't believe the author poured his heart and soul into this one--it read like he slammed it out in a weekend; like it didn't take him any longer to write it than it does to read it. It's awful. I'm sorry.
Having said that, I believe the author CAN write--he just needs a better story. His style was great, the story was terrible. I may even pick up his next book--but only after reading the first chapter to see if it's more of the same.
This is a weekend read. It has a few gems, some good spots that will keep you turning the page in hopes the next chapter will be good too. Sadly, your hope will fizzle--the story becomes predictable (one character speaks with the woman she's impersonating and learns that even the rich and famous have problems), yet in the same breath, it's so unbelievable you want to choke. Come'on..these gals run up bills beyond belief, they use and abuse men who use and abuse them back, they are guilty of fraud, the men try to rip them off blind--yet in the end they all end up happy with their bills paid (through the lucky chance of their professional jewel thief turning 'good'), and they all get married and live happily ever after.
Immature was a great way to describe the storyline. The previous one-star reviews were absolutely correct. Check this book out of the library if you must read it. Save your money---you'll be happy you did.
