Chantal O'Hurley is a well-known film star who is wise, strong and beautiful. She has known her whole life what she wants to accomplish and has gone for her goals with clear and realistic expectations. She is aware of her impact on her audience and those with whom she associates, working diligently to have a reputation as a responsible and cooperative actress, and is well aware that she is only part of the movie-making team. She understands the personal vulnerability she has as a star, but has never anticipated that anyone close to her could and would consider stalking her.
At the recommendation of her agent, Chantal hires Quinn Dolan, private investigator for her personal security. Quinn and Chantal try to maintain a businesslike relationship, but as time goes along, Quinn becomes aware that Chantal's beauty is more than skin deep. It comes from her innermost being (which is the source she draws upon for her acting talent); a deep appreciation of life. Chantal, on her side, comes to know that Quinn is more than the tough guy persona seen at first glance. He is perceptive and compassionate, and draws this strength from within himself as well.
Nora Roberts has done her homework here. She puts the reader right into the environment. The details of filmaking, acting and the theatre world ring true. I found myself "right there" on the soundstage, as if I was by the camera (if not in front of it). I have found that I better not start reading one of Roberts' novels if I plan on reading myself to sleep, because I get so involved that I can't stop myself from turning the pages, reading "just one more chapter" until I'm finished, often into the very early morning! This book is just one more example of the power and intensity of her writing.
Well written (as all her books are) and worthy of a very good review. I would thoroughly recommend this book, and advise you to do as I did and buy the other books in the series, you won't regret it.
