21. Poor Little Bitch Girl by Jackie Collins

I've been reading lately but haven't been keeping up with my blog or others. I've been busy and been squeezing in as much reading time as I can, so I am going to do three mini reviews. I hope to catch up with everyone else's blogs and do better posts in the near future, but until then here are some mini-reviews:

From Amazon:
Denver Jones is a hotshot twenty-something attorney working in L.A. Carolyn Henderson is personal assistant to a powerful and very married Senator in Washington with whom she is having an affair. And Annabelle Maestro—daughter of two movie stars—has carved out a career for herself in New York as the madame of choice for discerning famous men. The three of them went to high school together in Beverly Hills—and although Denver and Carolyn have kept in touch, Annabelle is out on her own with her cocaine addicted boyfriend, Frankie.
Then there is Bobby Santangelo Stanislopolous, the Kennedyesque son of Lucky Santangelo and deceased Greek shipping billionaire, Dimitri Stanislopolous. Bobby owns Mood, the hottest club in New York. Back in the day he went to high school with Denver, Carolyn and Annabelle. And he connected with all three of them. Frankie is his best friend.
When Annabelle’s beautiful movie star mother is found shot to death in the bedroom of her Beverly Hills mansion, the five of them find themselves thrown together . . . and secrets from the past have a way of coming back to haunt everyone. . . .

This was a good, easy read. While I tend to think of Ms. Collins' books as brain candy, it seemed just like the thing I needed to jump start my reading. While most of the plot and the characters were predicitible, I enjoyed it and give it a B. If you're looking for the perfect beach read this summer, you can't miss with one of Ms. Collins' books.
