4.5/5 Fame’s not what Cassidy thought it would be
Cassidy’s stint on a hot new reality TV show, Sink or Swim, propels her into unwanted stardom and earns her a stalker. She misses the million by five points, but still winds up with more attention than she’d like.
- It’s a predictable yet enjoyable story.
- I heard the audiobook, and the narrator’s performance was very good.
- I like the concept of the reality TV show and the idea of stalker angle. It went on a tad longer than it truly had momentum for, but there were some interesting red herrings. It’s not really about the TV series, but that’s a neat angle.
- Her family dynamics worked for me. Mother and father divorced amiably and a devoted kid half-brother. I enjoyed the fact that the family wasn’t picture perfect with a white picket fence.
- The murder angle was okay, but I think it distracts from the terror caused by the stalker.
- The gun thing was kinda dumb, but I can forgive the character under pressure some irrationality.
- I didn’t get a big “personal trainer” vibe from Cassidy. I’m not sure the book describes her running once, though I do remember her lifting weights or something. I haven’t had a personal trainer, but I think a lot of their job is the mental piece. I would have expected some of that disciplined mindset to bleed into her thought process while dealing with the stalker.
Intriguing stalker book.
