Summary
Shy and gawky, Ana has always daydreamed about living the life of her exotic half-sister Bee, a pop singer who had a #1 hit single before she inexplicably vanished from the celebrity scene. When Bee turns up dead, Ana is dispatched to the big city to clear out her apartment.

Instantly seduced by the second-hand glamour of Bee's baubles, bangles, and bottles of Pierre-Jouet, Ana takes up with Bee's wild club-hopping cronies. News of a missing cat and a remote country cottage soon convince Ana that her sister was leading a secret life. Now, she's on a mission to discover what really happened to Bee Bearhorn, the one-hit wonder—and what is about to happen to the unremarkable Ana Wills.

I really enjoyed this book. Was not sure about it at all. Never heard or read anything by the author. Very well written with a good twist. A must read or listen to.

It wasn't bad. A lot of back and forth and sometimes took a sec to figure out what time we were in and who's memory. However characters were good and I really didn't expect it to go the way it went. I expected an entirely different outcome.

A book with minimal predictability, I enjoyed it! The different dialects were well done and made the characters come to life. I recommended this book to my mom's book club!

You know those books that are slow burns and end with a bang? This isn't one of them. The pacing is slow and the payoff isn't really worth it. The narrator did a great job capturing each character's unique personalities.

I thought this book was going to be a trite little literary lark, but I was wrong. This book was fabulous, and gripping, and soulful. It could have gone deeper and more meditative but that would have put it into a different class entirely. This was a wonderful, “just deep enough” novel that was just long enough, had just the right amount of characterization, and just a smattering of romance to make it a wow bet!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Lisa Jewell never seems to disappoint. A lot of twists, some predictable, some not. Kept a good pace throughout the entire book. Narration was great as well.

This book started out very slowly, and the author can get tedious with long, repetitive lists. However, once I got a few chapters into the story, I was hooked. I was never really sure in what direction the plot was going, but I enjoyed that aspect of the book. Overall, I would recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyable book with wonderfully colorful characters and great narration - couldn't stop listening until I finished it! Would make such a great movie (with soundtrack of course!)

I really enjoyed this book too. The narrator was the right voice for the story and did a great job with the other characters. I loved the story, which was not what I was expecting and I thought it was a good mystery too. There are certain books that pull you in and you want to find out what happens next. That is a sign of good writing and this book has it.

This book was interesting and I am glad I listened to it, although it felt like it was a little tired in its story-line. Even so, it was a story worth listening to and the narrator was okay to hear in my ears for the duration.

Very enjoyable and realistic story with a touch of mystery. Narrator stays on point with each character’s voice and personality.

Very schmaltzy and syrupy tale where everything just falls into place in a matter of a few unrealistic days. Only read if you like fairytales and after school special entertainment.

I sent too sure about this book at first but as the story unfolded I became more interested in these characters. Each had a distinct personality and the narrator did a good job with each one’s voice. I liked it a lot.

This started off really slowly, I had to push myself to stay with it. Once the story was really rolling I still had to work to maintain interest. I finally gave up and didn’t finish.
