My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Six months after losing her mother to a brutal murder, Hollywood teen-star Vivian Divine is trying to piece her life back together amid paparazzi, an absentee father, and a cheating boyfriend. When a mysterious package arrives with a death threat, Vivian’s bodyguard trusts no one. With a new haircut and no makeup, Vivian jumps on a bus for the border,
But Hollywood sets never prepared her for real life, and Mexico is more than she bargained for. When her bag with her passport, money, and instructions for meeting her next handler disappear after the bus breakdown, Vivan has no choice but to attach herself to the only English speaking person she can find. Not that she minds. Nick has a better body than her movie star boyfriend, and even though he mocks her American princess ways, she can’t help but notice he’s sneaking looks at her ass every once in awhile.
With a mysterious scarred stranger on her heels, and a dead FBI agent in her wake, Vivian tries to keep a low profile while she makes her way across the Mexican desert to reach her cemetery meet-up point by The Day of the Dead.
