The Way You Look Tonight by Richard Madeley

The Way You Look TonightThe Way You Look Tonight by Richard Madeley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this back in January just gone. I forgot to transfer my review onto here.

I wasn't sure in leaving a review as I didn't enjoy this book as much as what I expected to.

A 16 year old girl get to find out her Father is a psychotic extortionist, racketeer and killer, this leads her to her chosen profession? Its odd. That's all I am going to say.

Its a bit disjointed in places where I couldn't follow so well. I tried to "listen" to it with Richard Madeley's voice in my head, but, alas, although the plot was good, it wasn't excellent.

I had a hard job focusing on this book and wanting to pick it up to finish it.

Yes I know some would say, life is too short, move onto another book, but I don't like to give in easily so I kept hoping I would enjoy it much better as time went on.

I'm just not sure about this.

All I know is, it was hard keeping my attention. I got easily distracted and excuses to go off and do something else.

I would like to thank Simon and Schuster UK Fiction for the chance in reading and reviewing this book. Via Net Galley

The thrilling new novel from bestselling Richard Madeley takes us into the glamorous world of the Kennedys and the steamy, sinister Florida Keys

Not until she was 16 did Stella Arnold learn the full truth about her father, how handsome, charming James turned out to be a cold-blooded, psychotic extortionist, racketeer and killer. Knowing now what her father was capable of, she decides to study psychology and the criminal mind, and to further her education in America. In the spring of 1962 she flies to Boston where, being beautiful, bright and fashionably English, she becomes someone of huge fascination and on every invitation list. Then comes an invitation one summer weekend to the home of the Kennedys. Stella quickly becomes part of the inner Kennedy circle as they party through the hot summer nights. Both brothers, JFK and Bobby, make their moves on her but she firmly, charmingly, repels them.

Further south, on the Florida Keys, a killer is on the loose. The case, unsolved, begins to rock America, and with her specialist knowledge of psychopaths, Stella is co-opted by the police investigation and prepares to fly south...
