But, of course, nothing is quite as it seems.
San Montinaro announces Regina's death from a tragic accident and Cady receives Regina's old diaries. As Cady has the diaries read to her, she becomes convinced they hold a clue to Regina's death. Through the diaries the reader discovers Regina's and Cady's history, and they dip into topics that range from the assassination of Martin Luther King, to women's rights, abortion, substance abuse and homosexuality. Despite what she has been through since childhood, Regina remains something of an innocent, naïve and totally lovable. Cady is a strong, intelligent woman whose past comes back to haunt her, and makes her reevaluate her life.
I loved everything about this novel, the quirky humor and larger than life characters above all. The plot took me in unexpected directions and I could not guess what would happen next. This is a delightful surprise package skillfully bound by the author's immaculate writing. And like all stories involving a princess, it has a happy ending. HIGHLY recommended!
I read all the way to the end and was underwhelmed with the ending....just not my kind of writing style, I guess. I love so many of the other female authors who write zany mystery novels that i expected to love this, too. I do appreciate the sensitivity & support for weight issues, religious values and women's health....these, to me . were this book's best features. I just couldn't get to "know" these characters and care about what happened to them.
I bought 3 Kindle books by this author; 2 down and one to go....we'll see. Sorry I can't be more positive in my review...you may like this author's work....it's just not my "cup of tea".
I haven't read a book in a while that had more real, relatable, likable characters. I loved that both Reggie and Cady were homing in on 50, pleasingly plump, struggling with body image and the media's obsession with being thin. This delicious book takes you through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s; through racial tension, Vietnam, drugs, and redemption. I was addicted to the story from the beginning and the twists and turns the plot took were completely unexpected.
Definitely an author I will read again.

Anne Allen at her best. I read the Camilla Randall series backwards - from latest release to earliest. Did not know that at the time but, in any order you do it, DO IT. Read morePublished on April 9, 2013 by Shari Morris
