The Lion's Den

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  Sex, betrayal, and intrigue: A dream vacation on a luxurious yacht turns deadly in this pulse-pounding beach read "chock full of delicious characters who flaunt their sins . . . like the latest Birkin bag" (Adriana Trigiani).

Belle likes to think herself immune to the dizzying effects of fabulous wealth. But when her best friend, Summer, invites her on a glamorous getaway to the Mediterranean aboard her billionaire boyfriend's yacht, the only sensible answer is yes. Belle hopes the trip will be a much-needed break from her stalled acting career and uniquely humiliating waitressing job, but once she's aboard the luxurious Lion's Den, it soon becomes clear this jet-setting holiday is not as advertised.

Belle's dream vacation quickly devolves into a nightmare as she and the handful of other girls Summer invited are treated more like prisoners than guests by their controlling host-and in one terrifying moment, Belle comes to see Summer for who she truly is: a vicious gold digger who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Belle realizes she's going to have to keep her wits about her -- and her own big secret closely hidden -- if she wants to make it off the yacht alive.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Jackie Collins + Nina Laurin = Katherine St. John's novel The Lion's Den!  Luxurious days of the rich in the Mediterranean on a yacht with not one murder, but two (sort of) make a great read.  I knew from the start that something was off about Summer, but had no idea how unbalanced she really was until 1/4 into the book.  I also thought Belle put up with too much of Summer's crap and never saw Belle's own plans unfolding.  Crazy good ending as it all comes together.  Great, fast, and easy read.
