Cool Cover, Inside... Not so Much
3 stars By Iola, Aug 08 2012
Juliette Taylor is visiting the Palm Grotto Resort and Spa in Cahuilla Springs, California, to lead a Christian retreat weekend. The ex-supermodel has a brand of exclusive skincare products, JT Lady, and Palm Grotto is one of her main customers. However, an internal investigation suggests that products are being counterfeited. Also on his way to Palm Grotto is Marcus, an expert in disaster prevention and recovery. He met Juliette when she was at the height of her fame, and fell hard for her. Marcus has been working with the FBI on a counterfeiting case, which gives him an excuse to reconnect.

Beauty to Die For didn't really work for me, despite the cool cover and the catchy title. We are told early in the book that people don't really understand how difficult modelling is. Well, this isn't really a statement that is going to gain sympathy from many readers, because it just seems to show how out of touch with reality the fashion industry is. I also got annoyed by the supposed incompetence of the police. Instead, Juliette was all over the resort, listening in on conversations and finding all the missing links. There was potential, but aspects of the plot were too unbelievable, even for fiction. It's not to say I didn't like the book at all, but the second half of the book was not strong enough to make up for the weak first half.
