Review: I really REALLY enjoyed this book. It's a very well written book and the genre hit it out of the park.. It's a mash up of a mystery and a classic chick-lit. Verena and her friends are a group very reminiscent of Sex and the City. The only reason that this book is being rated a 4 out of 5 stars is because I didn't like how naive Verena was potrayed as. She was the owner of her HUGE skincare line yet she was SO naive in her buisness planning as well as how she dealt with fiance, he was very obviously cheating on her and she was completely oblivious. Another small complain I have is how she dismissed a certian death, she seems totally heartless!!
