    I thoroughly enjoyed this book I had never really thought about the film noir genre until I read this book Kim Izzo seems to make writing look so effortless, as her books just flow even when the point of view changes.

    I m calling this story an homage to the femme fatales of the film noire genre Femme fatales are only for the movies, not the real world I m not so sure, I answered I ve never met one I didn t like Besides, in the right hands, a hell cat can be domesticated Los Angeles may be a city built on creating scenes of great romantic tragedy, but it was all make believe Dreams came here to die, discarded like used wrapping from a fast food joint Surrounded by by so many broken dreams, sympat I m calling this story an homage to the femme fatales of the film noire genre Femme fatales are only for the movies, not the real world I m not so sure, I answered I ve never met one I didn t like Besides, in the right hands, a hell cat can be domesticated Los Angeles may be a city built on creating scenes of great romantic tragedy, but it was all make believe Dreams came here to die, discarded like used wrapping from a fast food joint Surrounded by by so many broken dreams, sympathy could be as tough to find as a snowdrift My only hope was that the desert heat would bake my heart until it was so hard it could never break again

    It has a good flow to the story, keeps you involved You read from the point of view of the main character and then get a glimpse of another important person s point of view as the book is split up into 3 parts Starts with husband leaves wife, wife needs to find herself.in the process, she is learning so much about her back life that helps her through the break up andBook is very detailed and paints the picture for the reader to see exactly what she is writing about.

    Promising chicklit with a film noir golden age of Hollywood twist that completely jumps the shark when the heroine, Clara, somehow goes back in time to 1950s London thanks to a magical suitcase of her grandmother s gowns No, I m not making that shit up I was going to hide it behind a spoiler, but then I realised the plot summary basically gives it awayThen it happens somehow, magically, her whole life is transported back in time, into a living, breathing film noir that reveals to Clara the Promising chicklit with a film noir golden age of Hollywood twist that completely jumps the shark when the heroine, Clara, somehow goes back in time to 1950s London thanks to a magical suitcase of her grandmother s gowns No, I m not making that shit up I was going to hide it behind a spoiler, but then I realised the plot summary basically gives it awayThen it happens somehow, magically, her whole life is transported back in time, into a living, breathing film noir that reveals to Clara the potential to write her own endingI guess, since we were talking about noir, that most hard edged and cynical of genres, I d assumed the magical woo woo would be lessobvious My bad Anyhow, there s plenty of screwball stuff, lots of foggy alleyways and dames in killer frocks and men in trench coats with shady intentions, none of which quite falls together The framing device with the cop fits with the genre, but ultimately disrupts plot flow And excuse me, my west country pedant is showing, why fucking Cirencester The previous scene took place on an English clifftop along the coast, but suddenly we re 70 some miles inland Ultimately, although Clara s motives were supposed to be driven by a combination of vengeance and lust a la noir and a desire to save her granny less commonsensical, but roll with it , her hellbent revenge fantasy ended up making her seem less of the femme fatale,the annoying shrew
