Review: Original Sin

This is a wonderful peek into the lives of the rich and famous living in the exclusive Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Tess Garret is a British tabloid journalist who is hired as a spin doctor for the wealthy and snobbish Asgills, owners of an international cosmetics company.

Beautiful daughter Brooke is about to tie the knot with David Billington who is a member of an extremely influential and powerful family.

And Brooke’s mother, Meredith, is going to make sure her daughter walks down that aisle no matter what. Tess’ job is to make sure family secrets stay well buried. But she has her hands full doing damage control and trying to keep the pending nuptials on track as more and more secrets spill out. Yet in the end the secrets are not what might stop the eagerly awaited wedding in its tracks.

The book is a delight with many twists and turns and an ending that is anything but expected.

Rating: 4/5
