Laura Lake and the Luxury Press Trip - Wendy Holden
Reading Challenge Category: Need to read the back catalogue of Laura Lake books as received the latest as an ARC.
Laura Lake is the deputy editor of glossy mag Society. She's been asked to write an exclusive on celebrity getaway Coconut Cay, a private paradise belonging to billionaire businessman James Redmond. When a couple of pompous journalists turn up unexpectedly, scuppering Laura's chances of an exclusive, she decides to enjoy the glittering sea and golden Caribbean sands instead. But Laura soon discovers that the hi-tech, haute luxe, seven-star comfort of Coconut Cay hides some dark secrets. And she's determined to get the scoop before her rivals...
This is a short story follow-on to ‘Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings’ that I read last year. I need to read this and ‘Last of the Summer Moet’ as I have received the latest instalment as an ARC from NetGalley. This was as fast-paced and bonkers as the first book. I love the strange names everyone gets and the ludicrousness of the story. At least this time I was expecting it after having read the first book which took me by surprise. The story felt a little rushed, I know it was a novella, but there were no transitions from scene to scene, so you felt a bit whiplashed and the ending was very hurried. However, overall, for a short story, it wasn’t too bad.
