Drop Dead Beautiful (2007)
By Tina Jordan
Another summer, another Jackie Collins novel, overflowing with glittery possibilities and dropping more Hollywood names than Ivy’s maître d’. And Drop Dead Beautiful may be the best novel starring Lucky Santangelo, the Mafia princess-turned-movie studio head, ”a dangerously seductive woman with blacker-than-night eyes, full sensuous lips, a tangle of long jet-black hair, deep olive skin, and a lithe body.” Now a Vegas hotel tycoon, Lucky must run her empire, deal with her wild daughter, Max, counsel her best friend, and still find time to cook Friday-night Italian family dinners. It’s a tough life, but Lucky’s up to the challenge.
