It's my stop on the Grace Doll Blog Tour!
I'm here to tell you a bit about the book
and share my raving review!
About The Book
Grace Doll had everything a girl could want: Fame. Fortune. Beauty.
Everything except, of course, her freedom. So when a powerful movie producer forces an experimental treatment on Grace--one that's purported to make beauty immortal--she stages her own death to escape him.
With the help of trusted friends, Grace slips into hiding. She's forever flawless, forever young and forever pursued by her past.
But when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, holding the key to a life she thought she'd left behind, Grace must decide between the safety she's known... and embracing the role she was born to play.
I write YA books. Whatever my heart desires, I write. I don't have someone over my shoulder, in some office somewhere telling me what I can and cannot write. Or should and shouldn't write. I listen to my heart, the center of my muse, and trust my instincts.
I've written since junior high school. An only child, I grew up writing big stories about big families. I also write YA under the name of JM Warwick. My hometown of Palos Verdes, California figures in much of my work, as does my current home of Pleasant Grove, Utah and other favorite places. I love to travel.
They say "write what you know" and I do. I am a mother, I have six children, five cats and a huge doberman/dane dog. I have a supportive husband and we've been married 25 years. Our lives, though challenging with a handicapped child who has autism, are centered in our family.
My life experiences have worked into all of my novels. Some more heavily than others, but parts of me are in each story. I love stories rich in family drama, where family members overcome obstacles through love and miracles.
My ReviewI really enjoyed this book. In fact, I actually finished it in one sitting.
A book that can keep you reading for 5 hours strait.. That's gotta be one heck of a book!
This is my first time reading something written by this author. Surprising, considering I actually own a few of her books, and they are currently sitting on my bookshelf. I'm definitely going to be picking those up soon!
After reading this book, and loving Jennifer Lauren's writing style. I'm really looking forward to reading more from her.
I've got nothing but praise for Grace Doll! I loved the story from start to finish!
One tiny feature that I simply have to mention has to be the pictures at the end of some of the chapters (e-book version)... They gave Grace Doll a face, someone to admire, someone to connect with. It was a unique touch, one that I won't soon forget. Put that together with the duel point of view chapters, just brilliant!
I loved the story, the romance, the happy ending! I loved it all! Four stars from me for this interesting read!
