Not As Good As Her Last Book
I am a fan of Susan Meissner...However this book somehow missed the mark. It seemed a little pretentious like a person who name-drops to feel like an insider. It did not quite have the genuine feel of Hollywood in the 30's The more the book progressed the less I like one of the main characters. The switch back and forth from the 40's to the present was mostly clumsy and the character development for the elderly Violet and her daughter was just not there.I thought the "Hat" part of the plot was rather silly. Did not like the narrator much ...her southern voice was cloying. Will look for the next book and hope it is more like "The Secret of a Charmed Life" her previous novel, which I thought was very good.
