Jackie Collins was always one of my very favourite writers, but lately her style has become slack and skeletal. Her writing needs fleshing out. All the action, romance and thrills are still there, and the plots are still good, but the style is fading fast. I hope it all comes back in that favourite style of those brilliant Jackie C classics like 'Hollywood Wives'; 'Chances'; 'Rock Star'; 'Chances' and 'Lucky'. - If you want a REALLY good read, go for one of those and you won't be dissappointed, just very, VERY tired from staying up all night reading an un-put-down-able book! I longed, and waited for this Jackie Collins latest after a dissappointing read in 'Thrill', but was sorely dissappointed yet again. So, forget 'L.A. Connections' unless you're bored. Sorry Jackie.
