About the Author

Lisa Jackson has been writing romantic fiction for fifteen years. Over sixty of her books have been published and reprinted in more than a dozen foreign languages. A single mother, she is a native of Oregon, where she still resides with her two teenage sons. Lisa is often asked what is the key to her success, and her unfailing answer is a keen imagination, incredible friends, loving family, and always, loads of laughter. As Oscar Wilde is purported to have said, "Life is too important to be taken seriously."

I found this book impossible to get into, or enjoy. The writing style embraces every stale convention (more from the Romance genre than the thriller genre) and cliche, and the characters spend all their time in introspection and self-absorbtion.

The concept is interesting, but the characters and descriptions are hard to take.

If you don't mind this kind of thing (e.g. characters endlessly spotting themselves in reflective surfaces and 'noticing' their appearance as an excuse to describe it to you, characters engaging in long inner monologues to tell you what they're feeling and explain their back-stories, descriptions of LA and NO that could be lifted from any of a hundred other books etc.), then maybe the plot will hold you.

I just found there wasn't enough *there* there.
