Book Review: Fashion Assassin (Sarah Sky)
The beginning was really captivating, with an expensive necklace being stolen right off someone’s neck in the middle of an awards ceremony, with no sign at all of the culprit. It’s a genuinely intriguing mystery that keeps you guessing the whole way through the novel.
This book Jessica has Kat to contend with, a spoilt brat of a Russian model who is incredibly annoying but does have a softer side (and also a surprisingly conniving one!) There’s also a return of some old favourites, both friendly faces and some old enemies who rear their ugly heads again.
I had some difficulty with some of Jessica’s personal struggles: I didn’t feel like we saw enough of her relationship with Jamie to really understand how she was feeling. I just didn’t feel the connection between them, and found I was more interested in all the awesome spy stuff rather than a boyfriend we don’t get to see much.
This was a great follow up to Code Red Lipstick and I really enjoyed puzzling out the mystery on this one.
Ahaha I love this book, you should totally read it!
