Kimberly H. Smith's first novel carries us into the glamorous and highly successful life of the beautiful Colby Crenshaw, whose world comes crashing down very publicly and painfully at the very moment that should have been the pinnacle of her acting career.
Ms. Smith successfully elicits our emotional support for Colby in the midst of the loss of relationships and a lucrative career due to the sudden and violent death of her closest friend, whom she is accused of murdering. Will Colby survive the shame, condemnation, betrayal, and physical insecurity that surround her? Ms. Smith weaves a convincing tale of a woman who faces innumerable odds and comes out victorious, even though her very life is endangered at times and the evidence seems inexorably stacked against her. Her attorney, Malcolm, acting on her behalf, pulls out all the stops to prove his client's innocence, all the while falling in love with her.
The main characters in the novel were well developed, and the tensions between them worked to the plot's advantage. There were sufficient secondary characters to fill out the plot and more than enough twists and turns and surprises to keep the reader hooked and rooting for Colby. The length of the book was adequate, and scenes were not drawn out or overly dramatic, although Colby was certainly surrounded by quite a bit of drama. No surprise there; she is, after all, an actress!
Would I recommend this book? Yes. And highly so. I plan to reread it shortly and to give it to others so that they too, can enjoy the benefits of having someone wholeheartedly "Acting on Her Behalf."
