Book review Sunday time again!
A bit of a different book this week. Lately all I’ve been reading are mysteries and thrillers so I thought I’d go for something a little more light-hearted and fun. I’m a huge fan of Tilly Bagshawe’s books and I’ve read quite a few of them. I hadn’t read Flawless in a while so I thought I’d give it another go.
“Set in the glittering world of international diamond dealing, FLAWLESS follows the fortunes of idealistic young designer Scarlett Drummond Murray as she battles her way through the snake pits of greed and corruption in the jewellery business.From London to Beverly Hills, New York to Cape Town, Scarlett finds herself plunged into a world of ruthless mine owners, shady diamond dealers, and the stunningly beautiful women for whom they all compete, in business and in bed. All of them, in their different ways, are prepared to sell their souls and sacrifice everything in pursuit of that one, elusive, perfect stone, no matter what the cost.But is Scarlett also destined to be blinded by the brilliance of the temptation that surrounds her? Or can she keep her nerve – and her principles – and make it to the top with her heart and her business still intact?” (Blurb taken from Amazon)
One thing I really loved about this book (and all Tilly Bagshawe’s books) is how long and in-depth they are! What I also enjoyed about Flawless was the strong female lead character, and how despite all the glamour of the book, Bagshawe highlights other things such as the characters charity work and how this puts her in danger. Obviously the main theme of the book is the romance and relationships between the character, which ends up being a little bit predictable. To be honest though I find most books of this genre are. This is a perfect book to take away on holiday, or if you’re looking for something that has a great story, drama and humour but doesn’t have a confusing plotline, but its also long enough to get into and get a good read out of.
Perfect for fan’s of chic-lit, as are all of Tilly Bagshawe’s books.
