Alice Joseph was a diva in a smash Broadway production. A beautiful, talented woman who appeared to have a major lock on success and happiness. Little did the world know that behind the bright smile and resounding singing voice lay a heart fraught with anguish and guilt, once a twin and now alone.
Ms. Jameson puts together a compelling mystery while painting a detailed character study of her heroine. As in most good recipes, the success of the dish is in the details. Alice Joseph character is vibrant and alive. The addition of a beau provides some sexual tension. There are multiple villains with differing goals.
The book has tradgedy, snake handling churchies, stalkers, perverts, violence and mental illness as well as tenderness, love and affection.
Ms. Jameson put all those ingredients together and produced a tasty bit of reading.
I recommend the book.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
