Publisher's Summary

Ricky Lam had it all - a thriving film career, the adoration of countless fans, incredible wealth, and a cocaine and alcohol problem that almost destroyed him. Luckily, he also had his older brother Philip - who strong-armed him into an addiction clinic. After 15 years, Ricky wants to mend the rift that erupted between the brothers during those dark days. But when tragedy strikes, erasing Ricky's dreams of winning Philip's forgiveness, he resets his priorities and dedicates himself to his brother's dream - the construction of a unique resort in South Carolina called the Crown Jewel. When Ricky steps into his brother's shoes he encounters unsettling contradictions, as well as his sister-in-law Roxy Lam, who leads him to the mystery at the center of his brother's life and into a love affair far richer and more challenging than any he has experienced before.

Ok if you want an easy brainless read

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If your looking for an easy fun listen without any thinking involved, this is for you

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending is just as the reader anticipates, but a fun read.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I sometimes did not know who was speaking, the narrator did not use different voices for different characters. Confusing but an easy voice to listen to.

Any additional comments?

I would look for books with higher ratings by this author.
