“Freya Johnson is back and life is good!
Having sold her photography studio in the UK, she’s now living the American dream, engaged to Hollywood film star, Nicholas Kaden. Finally her past is behind her and the only way is up – as long as she’s regularly fed takeaway food!
But with a wedding to plan and a whole heap of charity work to organise, she could do without the reappearance of her childhood sweetheart, Jonny Sanders. He’s rich, he’s better looking than she remembers and he reminds her of all those times she’d rather forget.
When a flippant comment made during a hospital visit ends up as headline news, suddenly everything is in turmoil and Freya’s life is in danger!
Could her past be coming back to haunt her? Who is sending her hate mail? And where the hell are her ‘Wild Wednesday’ pants?”
I got this eBook when it was available as a free download from Amazon (current price £1.53). It is the sequel to Excess All Areas (my review here) which I really enjoyed so I was excited to find out what Freya and Nicholas were up to now!
I was absorbed by the story straight away, it felt like only yesterday that I had read the previous book because I found it so easy to remember it all. The blast from Freya’s past came early on in the book, this was a fantastic twist in my opinion and kept me glued to the pages as I waited to see what would happen. The information that Jonny gave Freya sent her reeling and from that moment she seemed to fall apart a little bit. But there was lots more to come…
Freya’s feisty nature shone through once again and her witty banter entertained me throughout, but when her life became complicated she didn’t handle it in a good way. I found myself feeling frustrated by her actions particularly where hospitals were concerned. About halfway through the book things took a sinister turn, this was a great part of the story because it added some heart-pounding mystery and intrigue.
Later on came a real ‘oh my goodness’ moment which completely shocked me, I certainly hadn’t seen that one coming! It was something that I knew would affect Freya in a big way and I felt concerned for her. What followed was a scary time and although I had guessed who was responsible for what had been going on I enjoyed it nonetheless.
As I have come to expect from this author the writing was addictive and pulled me in so that I was unable to stop reading, this made it another one day read to add to the list.
Public Property was a great read that entertained me from start to finish, I would definitely recommend it!
