Having changed her identify in book one, Cleo is now known as Justine. She changes her looks to suit her name and her new life in Paris. When Justine walks in a hotel to book her accommodation, she meets Didier, the manager and owner of the hotel.
Didier takes an instant liking to her and she finds her lifestyle changing from one extreme to the other and she adapts fairly quickly to the change. This is a short part of the story too but it's very comprehensive. It contains danger, mystery, threats, love and surprises. I am keen to find out what's in store for Justine, especially in view of the way this part of the story ended. It is advisable to read book one, "The Beginning" before reading this part. This book is more suitable for Young Adults of 16+
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
To read this as a stand alone book we aren't told much about Justine. In the first book she began as a twelve year old and the book could be read by the YA audience. Justine has now grown older but I'm unsure of her age and the writing in this book is for a much older audience. Both books are ok for adults but they may miss on other potential audiences.
For me Justine's leap from life on the run with Einstein to life with Didier was too easy a step with luxury and opportunities which were the opposite of her life in book one. With the story being short we are fed tit-bits about the search for her past and we are introduced to a possible stalker, who may or may not be a threat to Justine's life.
Her story will continue in book three.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
Elle Klass continues to delve into a range of emotions with skill. The transformation of Cleo/Justine from street kid to young woman on the run is shown through her thoughts and actions as the story develops. There are the added complexities of new relationships and being unsure of who to trust. Reactions to new situations are carefully linked back to Cleo/Justine’s earlier years.
This is a great continuation of the series.
Luckily, out of hardships on the streets, she formed some rare friendships that will get tested for their lasting quality. As unknown threats close in, she is forced from the protective shadows of street life to find safety in another country, France. More unknowns for Cleo to cope with, calling upon her innovative skills in re-making her image. She is no longer Cleo, but now Justine Holmes.
New name, new stunning look, but still dogged by the shadows of her past even though a new happenstance meeting was about to thrust her into the full light of day. Into a world of fame and fortune, taking her to social heights she could have never imagined, bringing her to the blissful threshold of romance and love, until the shadows of the unknown gather once again into threatening storm clouds.
Now forced to run again, fearful of her past and also her growing unease at her own identity, Justine Holmes is riding in a taxi through the dark of night, heading for the airport, ticketed on a flight to the City by the Bay. A destination that’s bound to hold more unknown suspense for a woman on the run.
Author Elle Klass has succeeded in taking an obscure character from the lower layers of the socioeconomic fabric of society, and spinning an exciting story of adventure. And the adventure promises to continue with Baby Girl 3 - City by the Bay.
Five stars for Elle Klass and Baby Girl 2 - Moonlighting in Paris!
I enjoyed the descriptions of Paris, a city I adore, and found Cleo/ Justine's experiences of it reminiscent of my own. I found the story of her relationship with Didier fascinating and the ending quite tantalising. Looking forward to reading Book 3.
Short enough to read in one sitting, Elle Klass is delivering on all the promises made in book 1. The standard of the storyline is just as high, and the writing is like welcoming an old friend.
The feeling of watching a TV episode remains, as does the mix of reality and the highly unlikely (as I said in my review of book 1, this gives a great depth to the story as a whole).
I'm very happy to say I have "Baby Girl Book 3: City by the Bay" lined up and ready to read!
