Angel with Two Faces
Angel with Two Faces - Nicola Upson

What was that?

 

I was so looking forward to the second instalment in the Josephine Tey series, because the first one had really surprised me in the best way - and I'm not keen on either series or tribute- / fan- fiction.

 

But where was the sparkle, the pep, the genuine dialogue between the characters that made the first book work so well? 

 

For what its worth, where was the plot???

 

This book seriously suffered from "telling, not showing", from a stagnant plot, from solely basing all success of this story on shock-value (which was not that shocking once got used to all sorts of stereotypes being exhausted...).

 

So disappointing.

Painted Faces By L.H. Cosway Free! Amazing Book!
Painted Faces - L.H. Cosway

Come forth with an open mind, for an unconventional tale of love..

Dublin native Freda Wilson considers herself to be an acquired taste. She has a habit of making offensive jokes and speaking her mind too often. She doesn't have the best track record with first impressions, which is why she gets a surprise when her new neighbour Nicholas takes a shine to her.

Nicholas is darkly handsome, funny and magnetic, and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of colour when she's around him. When he walks into a room he lights it up, with his quick wit and charisma. He is a travelling cabaret performer, but Freda doesn't know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night. 

She is gob-smacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag. Later on, Nicholas asks her if she would like to become his show assistant. Excited by the idea, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself immersed in a world of wigs, make-up and high heels, surrounded by pretty men and the temptation of falling for her incredibly beautiful employer.

In this story of passion and sexual discovery, Nicholas and Freda will contend with jealousy, emotional highs and lows, and the kind of love that only comes around once in a lifetime.

Angel with Two Faces - Nicola Upson

Inspector Archie Penrose invites Josephine Tey to his family home but tragedy strikes and a lot of well hidden skeletons come out of a variety of cupboards.

quote 2017-03-28 10:38
You know, it's a funny thing about writers. Most people don't stop to think of books being written by people much like themselves. They think that writers are all dead long ago. They don't expect to meet them in the street or out shopping. They know their stories but not their names and certainly not their faces. And most writers like it that way.
