New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves scandal, celebrity secrets, and murder into an explosive novel of Hollywood almost too wicked not to be true: the story of a legendary actress who knows too much--and the woman she's chosen to reveal it all. . . .  Eve Benedict is the kind of subject who could make any biographer's career. Last of the movie goddesses, she has two Oscars, four ex-husbands, and a legion of lovers, both famous and infamous. Now she is ready to write a tell-all memoir that has even Hollywood's richest and most powerful worried. Julia Summers never dreamed of being chosen to tell Eve's story. But even if it means transplanting herself and her ten-year-old son from their quiet life in Connecticut to the withering limelight of Beverly Hills, it's an opportunity too great to pass up. But Julia never imagined how far someone would go to keep Eve Benedict's book from being published . . . until she discovers just how dark Eve's secrets are. And the one man Julia hopes she can trust--Eve's stepson, Paul Winthrop--may have the most to gain if his stepmother's story is never told . . . and if Julia's life ends before she can write a word of the truth. "Roberts does a beautiful job weaving together the movie star's tittilating tales and the love story that develops."--USA Today… (more)

Good not great. Fairly typical contemporary romance. ( )

Eve Benedict, queen of Hollywood, has decided at the end of a fruitful career to have her memoirs written. She hires Julia Summers to do the job, with the bonus intention of hooking Julia up with Eve's stepson, Paul. Unfortunately, Eve knows many secrets about some very powerful and dangerous individuals, one of whom will kill to keep them from coming to light. The first chapter reveals that someone does kill Eve, and that Julia is being charged with the murder.
Nora Roberts has been a queen of romantic novels for several decades now, and though this is some of her earlier work, it proves she deserves the title. The plot is suspenseful, the chemistry between Julia and Paul crackles, and Eve's recollections of earlier times are richly imagined. My only complaint is that the lives of the characters seem too conveniently interwoven to be true, but it is necessary to the plot. I was quite surprised as to who the murderer turned out to be, and very much sucked in to the lives of these characters. ( )
