As I am new to blogging I thought I would start with a book I enjoyed and couldn't put down.

When I saw the gold sparkly cover and the killer heals I was intrigued and this book didn't disappoint.

Right from the very first page I was dragged into the world of Belinda, Lori and Chloe.  What had happened to Belinda? Would Chloe become a Princess and was Lori's prince really her Prince Charming? I was so gripped that I couldn't put it down until I had found out what had happened to the three main characters.

The book starts 20 years ago on a ski slope, with a paparazzi chasing a member of the royal family, Belinda, Princess of Wales, as she gets ready for her ski she looks sad, this intrigued me and I wanted to know why.

The books introduces the main characters in their own chapters, this is the way the books carries on all the way through telling each story until it becomes clear that their stories are interwoven, it builds towards the climax and keeps you wanting to read on. You become embroiled in the stories of Belinda, Chloe and Lori.  It also has lovely back drops of real places in London and Mexico, mixed with the made up kingdom of Herzslovakia.

Don't get me wrong it's not just a jaunt across the continents it's a gripping story with plenty of sizzle and passion along the way, to say u wont look at a banana the same way again is an understatement, it keeps you hungry for more.

This was my first Rebecca Chance novel but will definitely be reading more.
