Gold Diggers by Tasmina Perry
Synopsis from www.goodreads.com
Glamour, intrigue, lust and betrayal merge as New York billionaire Adam Gold moves to London.
He’s sexy, single and about to come face to face with The Gold Diggers:
Karin the jet-setting swimsuit entrepreneur,
Erin the naive country girl who snares the job as Adam’s PA,
Molly, a fading eighties supermodel with an expensive drug habit
and Summer, her beautiful daughter.
Who will succeed where so many other have failed – and what will they do to get him? From Monte Carlo to Lake Como, St Moritz to St Barts, Gold Diggers takes us on a heady journey through a world of sex, murder and betrayal
This is the first time am reading books for this author. Got it cheap from the Big Bad Wolf Sale. At first I not sure whether to but this book or not as it was very thick. Did not have the confidence it finish it. But seeing that it was only RM8, I bought it anyway.
What I like about this book is that the writing style is similar to Louise Bagshawe and Judith Michael. It's something like Chick-lit and yet the book have a bit of "meat" for me to chew on.
Most of the characters in the book have very shallow view of life with exception of Erin and Summer.
It was fun to read the spats between Molly and Karin. Molly being portray as very shallow, money minded and would not hesitate to"pimp" out her daughter if it benefited her. But I pitied her. It seems that she is always the second best in everything. All her evil scheme back-fired against her. It was hilarious.
What I don't like about this edition is that it have poor proof reading. Spotted several spelling errors.
Ones have to be very careful when reading the ending as it's link to what happen in the beginning of the book.
Overall, I rate it 4 stars out of 5 stars. This is my kind of drug.
