    How Ironic!

    I had to keep forcing myself to read this book. I finally gave up trying to get into each over-repetitive page and returned it for the next unsuspecting reader. The ironic part is that I decided to finally see what Ripa was reading, and low and behold, the book had made it's way to the list. I suppose I'll stick to picking my own literature.

    Not thrilling enough

    This book was better than the other books that I have read from Kelly Ripa's book club, but this book just falls flat. Jennifer and Catherine are two sisters who run a satellite empire, with the help of Peter Burns. Jennifer is suppose to be the sister who likes to run the more techinical side of the business, but yet she is described as plain and not as good looking as her sister (rolls eyes). Catherine likes to be in the spotlight. Jennifer meets a actor named Padrig O Connell and instantly falls for him. Then there is an attempt on her life, but of course she doesn't believe that Padrig could have anything to do with it. Ok she is suppose to be the smart one, yet she acts like a total idiot when it comes to Padrig. When Jennifer and Padrig become a couple, that's when the problems begin. The beginning of this book was dry and boring, I had trouble staying awake. It didn't get better until the last two chapters. Basically it was obvious which sister put out a contract on the other sister. There was hardly any suspense to this book, the sisters were immuture and annoying. I don't reccommend wasting your money on this book, and it's basically a long drawn out bad soap opera storyline.
