This book is truly fun with mysteries galore. Our protagonist, Deirdre, is at first curious only about present day mysteries that involve her father's death. Slowly, she becomes interested in the past, specifically her past, and then the mysteries really pile up. Ephron doesn't just conjure up Hollywood in the 1960s-1980, she brings back American life for that period: clothing, interests and family behavior. Personally, I love that Deirdre's mother leaves her family and her Hollywood career in the 1970s and joins a silent Buddhist religious order. Only to return upon her ex-husband's death a decade later. She suddenly finds her voice again after she has secretly searched through his private papers. This is a well crafted book with beautifully developed characters, each uniquely tuned to their own frequency. Each time I thought I had the over-arching mystery all figured out, I was wrong. This kept me glued to the pages, unable to stop despite other obligations. I enjoyed this book enormously and received it through Edelweiss from the publisher.

Hallie Ephron has the reputation of infusing her novels with the glamour of the Golden Age of Hollywood. But this novel reads more like a cancelled TV soap opera, despite the liberal sprinkling of names, from Marilyn to Ava and Frank. It’s too bad, because there is a gem of a mystery in the story, which is ultimately lost in a mushy finale. The action takes place in 1985 in Beverly Hills. Deidre Unger drives from her San Diego home to her screenwriter father’s domicile, at his behest, to assist him in preparing the house for sale, only to find him floating face down in the swimming pool. Initially an accident is suspected, but then the police detective determines that it was murder. Flashback to 1963, when Deidre’s girlhood friend confessed to stabbing to death her movie star mother’s lover. The rest of the book dwells on the possibility that the two murders are related. To give credit, the plot is crafty, but the execution is cumbersome. Some suspense is built up but is dissipated by an unjustified conclusion. For readers who like this sort of thing, it could well be enjoyable. But this reader would have preferred a more traditional crime story without the gushiness of soap.

No suspense, felt like the book was dashed off in a hurry. Character development poor. Had to make myself finish it. Don't waste your time.
