Summary: Ella Broden is living a double life.
By day, Ella works as a buttoned-up attorney on some of the city’s most grueling cases. By night, she pursues her passion for singing in the darkest clubs of Manhattan.
No one knows her secret, not even Charlotte, the younger sister she practically raised. But it seems she’s not the only one in the family with something to hide. When Charlotte announces she’s sold her first novel, Ella couldn’t be more thrilled…until she gets a call that her sister’s gone missing.
Ella starts investigating with the help of Detective Gabriel Velasquez, an old flame in the NYPD, and what she finds is shocking. If art imitates life, then her sister’s novel may contain details of her real-life affairs. And any one of her lovers could be involved in her disappearance.
Desperate to bring Charlotte home, Ella works through her list of suspects, matching fictitious characters with flesh-and-blood men. But will it be too late to save the sister she only thought she knew?
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
The summary completely drew me in. The book? It’s ok, but not as gripping as the summary would lead you to think.
There are things I liked about the story: the layout of the story. The premise. And then there are things that kind of bugged me or didn’t grip me.
The things I really enjoyed about the book- if I talk about them- will totally spoil the book. And I don’t want to do that!
Bottom line: This book is not a bad read. It’s not a GREAT read either ( there is no heart shaped eyed emoticons after reading this for me) Nice writing, interesting layout of the book, but I won’t be running around saying “READ THIS!”

Thank you for writing an honest review of this book. It is very rare to read a book review where the reviewer will honestly tell you when a book is nothing to write home about.
I just really thought I was going to LOVE this book from the summary. It does have some interesting parts, but overall… it was just ok!
