Welcome to Book Lovers Paradise

Welcome to my attempt at blogging. I am a true to heart bibliophile. Here I will discuss and review books as I read them. You are welcome to do the same. The only rules are no profanity, no politics, no religion, and have fun!

about the book:
(from Goodreads)

Catherine Dixon is everyone's dreamgirl. Girls want to be her. Men want to be with her. From her charming smile to her gentle voice, one always turns to take a second look at Cathy. Wherever she goes there isn't an ill-word spoken about her. Her job as Vice President of Communications at MoonStar, one of the world's top hotel chains is to make sure guests are happy to the point of perfection.

From the blue oceans of Antigua to the bustling streets of Vietnam, the racing adrenaline at the Green Hell, the devastating natural disaster in Japan and the stunning architecture in Germany, Cathy finds herself in a whirlwind of fine dining, plush clothes and sheer extravagance. But is perfection only a mask for untold disaster? In a job that deals so much with people, Cathy goes home to an empty bed. There are no pictures on her wall, no doting phone calls from a tongue tied lover and no family holidays to boast about.

What is Cathy's secret and how will her world change when the world knows? What is the significance of the blue pendant round her neck? Who is the mysterious man she is seen with every three months? What are the contents of the brown envelope delivered to her on the fifteenth of every month? Will her secrets ever catch up with her or will Cathy continue to sail alongside perfection in the world she has created for herself as a Frequent Traveller?


Pandora always writes amazing stories.  This book is no exception.  I couldn't put it down, in fact,I've read it twice.
An adventurous travel book, featuring a hotel exec who doubles as a spy.  Cathy Dixon.  Adventure and intrigue at the same time.

Pandora is a fantastic writer.  She has the ability to create a novel that reads quickly and easily.  A group of short stories linked by a central character.  I loved the travel aspect of this book.  I briefly lived vicariously through Cathy Dixon.  Pandora was able to convey Cathy's fear while maintaining excitement.  I felt somewhat sorry for Cathy.  She doesn't want to return to the dungeon but will if she backs out of her new life.
