About this deal
In 1937, photographer Cecil Beaton summed up a trip to Palm Beach as: “Tennis, swimming, lunch. Golf, drinks, dinner. The Patio. Bradley’s. Bed.” 80 years later, there may be some new stores on Worth Avenue, but the Beaton-described spirit of Palm Beach is the same: a place of retro luxury where leisure sports and tropical tradition reign supreme.

The characters’ decision-making and the events of the book did not feel realistic at all. Why would a random billionaire offer to double the salary of a man he just met? Why would said billionaire’s wife hire the first random writer that stumbles into her house (Rebecca) to ghost-write her memoir? I received an ARC of this book, and I wasn't at all sure that it was my kind of book (not to mention, I wasn’t a fan of the cover! lol), but once I started it, I couldn't put it down until I finished the entire thing!
On the bike path there's some beautiful old homes. The original Bethesda-By-The Sea, originally was on the bike path. Now it is a home that belongs to the woman behind Kemble Interiors. We included her in the book. Her house is magic. I mean it's probably one of most iconic landmarks to me. Opinions get up close and personally challenged as things change as Rebecca sees a whole different side to the mega wealthy.
My love and passion for collecting books began as a young child. It was out of a devotion to preserving these incredible pieces of history and culture that this business of buying and selling rare books naturally evolved over twenty years ago. Thanks to our many great clients who share our affections, we have succeeded in building one of the world’s premier collections of signed and inscribed first editions and documents in all fields, with particular attention to the subjects of Literature, Americana, Science, Economics, and Intellectual History.
Early in the 1900s, one-time oil baron Henry Morrison Flagler took interest in the Southern coast of Florida and began developing an exclusive resort community. Establishing a railroad that would allow easier access to the area, he went on to build two hotels—his hope was that America’s first families would come to populate the area. This modest community would later evolve into an iconic American destination, hosting British royalty, American movie stars, and becoming the home-away-from-home to some of the country’s leading families. As the century continued, Palm Beach established itself as a luxury hideaway synonymous with old-world glamour and new-world sophistication.

I guess there are spoilers in this review, but for there to be spoilers, there would have to be a plot to spoil, and there isn't. Rebecca then surprises herself when she accepts an offer from Mrs. Stone to work as her ghostwriter. Soon after, she finds herself invited as a regular guest at the Stone's high-powered dinners. Tom Turner is a reputed writer from America, who is famous for writing crime, fiction, thriller, and mystery novels. He is particularly famous for writing the Charlie Crawford Mystery series. His mystery books have done very well and have helped him in establishing himself as a noteworthy author. Turner is a native of New England. After the completion of his college studies, he stayed in Vermont and was involved in running a bar for some time. He shifted to New York after a few years and started working in an advertising agency. Author Turner held the post of a copywriter in a number of advertising agencies in Manhattan and also won several awards for his work. After spending many years in this line of work, he decided to undergo a radical change and shifted his focus to commercial real estate. This job landed him in Palm Beach after several years, where he bought, renovated, and sold plots and houses. The place attracted him so much that he ended up writing mystery stories set in Palm Beach.
