Sintesi dell'editore

A gripping new novel from best-selling author J. D. Mason about a wealthy Texas family and the one woman who holds - and will reveal - all their dirty secrets.

Desdimona Green has been the name on everyone’s lips in Blink, Texas. Twenty-five years ago, at the age of 18, she shot and killed one of Blink’s wealthiest men, a pillar of the community, oil baron Julian Gatewood. The Gatewood family was considered untouchable, so the whole state of Texas was rocked to its core over Julian’s murder. But people were even more shocked to discover that Desi was Julian’s daughter and that her mother had been his lover for years.

When Desi gets out of jail and promptly inherits millions from Julian’s estate, everyone knows that there is much more to the story - and Desi Green is the keeper of the Gatewood secrets, including what happened the night Julian died. When a famous true-crime reporter shows up on her doorstep wanting the full story, Desi agrees to reveal all, much to the horror of the Gatewoods, who will do anything to stop her. But Desi has more than a few tricks up her sleeve.

J. D. Mason is the author of Somebody Pick Up My Pieces, That Devil’s No Friend of Mine, You Gotta Sin to Get Saved, This Fire down in My Soul, Don’t Want No Sugar, And on the Eighth Day She Rested, One Day I Saw a Black King, and Take Your Pleasure Where You Find It. She lives in Denver with her two children.

Kept me intrigued but...

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

I would recommend this book to someone who wants a pure "drama", non-sustantial read not to my die hard J.D. Mason fans who crave depth and a little something more.

What was most disappointing about J. D. Mason’s story?

The ending. Some things concluded rather obvious, other things were left to a weak conclusion.

What three words best describe Nicole Small’s voice?

Sultry. Articulate. Semi-fluctuating.

Did Beautiful, Dirty, Rich inspire you to do anything?

I was not inspired.

Any additional comments?

Up until this point, I have LOVED most everything J.D. Mason has done. I know that it's not easy starting with a different kind of story and characters. I am bored with details about how much money something costs, designer names and descriptions of status beyond what's necessary to develop character. I am more interested in who the person is and the truths that we all think/know but are not always amplified.

Just okay.

Eh, the story was a little bland. The plot didn't connect well with me. The overall writing was okay. I feel like l the relationship between desi and Solomon could have been written about a little more.

Ummmmm....

I tried to like this book but it was VERY long and drawn out. I didn’t enjoy it at all and I didn’t feel the storyline was strong at all. I know there’s a part 2 and 3 but I won’t be reading (or listening). It’s a no for me...

Mlet

Long complex story. Would have shortened several chapters to have a better ending with something tragic happening to Theodore Jordan and Olivia Gatewood.

Ending

This was a good listen, but the ending was lacking. There was a lot that was left unanswered.

Hard to follow

This book was hard to follow. I kept reading, waiting for it to take off but it never did. It ended like something was missing. I didn’t get it at all.

Very suspenseful

Front the first chapter to the last! A page turner. I listened and had to go back an re-listen while taking notes to figure who done it and why, why did so-and-so do what they did, why no one ever questioned that person, why didn’t the main character tell her story from the beginning. A good read and I encourage you to take a go at it. AND narrator Nicole Small does not disappoint! Kudos to JD Mason andNicole Small.

BRAVO!!!

This was outstanding one chapter after the next. The storyline unfolded the answer to mysteries that were thought to have already been solved. The twists turns and secrets revealed had me talking to the narrator who did an excellent job.
I recommend this one to everyone.
