I am an avid reader of literary, contemporary & historical fiction, mystery, suspense, paranormal, young adult, and urban fantasy. I agree with Cinderella that a new pair of shoes can change a girls life, I love SEC football and I'm addicted to peanut butter M&Ms.
This was the first book by Judy Blundell that I have read. It won't be the last.
Strings Attached is a story of deceit, love, betrayal, murder, New York and gangsters. The story of Kit, a girl from Rhode Island who moves to New York to make it on Broadway, winds from past to present in a way that the story slowly unwraps in front of you. It is truly a page turner. I finished it in about 4 hours.
Kit is trying to make it in New York after leaving her family and boyfriend Billy behind. She has small jobs in a play but is wanting to hit the "big time". She runs into Billy's father one night and life becomes one of tangled secrets. He makes a deal with Kit to help her with some contacts, she only has to do favors for him every now and then.
The story brings to light family secrets, hidden lovers, and the truth that everything comes with a price.
