      I belong to a book club and I’m totally loving it. So far we have read Beastly, Their Eyes Were Watching God and I just finished reading Poor Little B*tch Girl by Jackie Collins.  

      Jackie’s main character is Denver Jones. She is a hotshot twenty-something attorney working in L.A.  Carolyn Henderson is a personal assistant to a powerful and very married Senator in Washington with whom she is having an affair.  And Annabella Maestro-daughter of two movie starts-has carved out a career for hersel in new York as the amdame of choice for discerning famous men.  the three of them went to high school together in Beverly Hills-and although Denver and Carolyn have kept in touch, Annabelle is out on her own with her cocaine addicted boyfriend, Frankie.

      Then there is Bobby Santangelo Stanislopolous, the Kennedyesque son of Lucky Santangelo and deceased Greek shipping billionaire, Dimitri Stanislopolous.  Bobby owns Mood, the hottest club in New York.  Back in the day he went to high school with Denver, Carolyn and Annabelle.  And he connected with all three of them.  Frankie is his best friend.

      When Annabell’s beautiful movie star mother is found shot to death in the bedroom of her Beverly Hills mansion, the five of them find themselves thrown together...and secrets from the past have a way of coming back to haunt everyone...(summary from JackieCollin.com).

      I’ve never read a Jackie Collin’s book before so I was curious to see how the book would go. I loved the book for the most part but towards the end, it felt like she rushed to complete it. I was not happy with the ending at all. She took her time to build up the characters she introduced you to and I really liked that as well as the speed of the book. Once the characters were introduced, it started going faster and I couldn’t wait to find out more.  Then all of a sudden poof it’s done. I still had some unanswered questions but it was still an enjoyable read.
