The Truth About Diamonds which was a fun read, so when Melissa gave me Priceless for Christmas, I was sure it would be another good read.
The book is about Upper Eastsider Charlotte, whose life is turned upside down when her father embezzles millions of dollars from his clients. Charlotte realizes that her father has left her broke (in money and in the heart). With a dead mother and an imprisoned father Charlotte sets out to make a new life for herself, in N'Orleans.
Priceless isn't one of those books that changes your life, but I liked the message. "The best things in life aren't things," they say that right? I know there's also the one about how things are not free, but that doesn't work for this story. Priceless kept me hooked as I turned page after page wanting to know what would happen to Charlotte and her friends (even if some of the writing is a little harsh on the eyes).
I don't know why, but I always want to figure out what is going to happen in a book before it ends. I know this probably ruins it for some, but I think it's fun GD it! At page 170 of Priceless I set in my prediction about who was threatening Charlotte. The person that was letting her know that she was going to pay for her father's crimes. I was completely wrong, and I must say I was relieved. The last thirty or so pages are really some of the best in the book.
If you're looking for a light read, but something that will keep you at least interested the entire way, then pick up Priceless on Amazon. Also Ryan Seacrest makes a secret cameo appearance as Peter Lakeshore (I mean this is all in my opinion). Just keep in mind a little bad writing never killed anyone.
