Ooh, I wish I could take credit. Isn't this one GOOD!?


I freaking loved it.

And I just read your write-up of the Heyer. So nice -- it make me all smooshy and I made Josh read it:

"Joshie! Joshie! Look! Read what Tanita wrote!"


Oh, I love this book! My favorite is probably Mendoza in Hollywood though.


This is one of my favorite books. The first 3 or 4 in the series are good, and so are the short stories.

By the end of the series I was really, really disappointed with where the author chose to take her characters though.

Carolyn Crane

This is the second time this week I have heard raves about this book. It just looks great, and that opening!!! Klunk.


And when you get done with all the Company material (and there's lots!), KB has some good fantasy too.

Oh, the joy of having these books in front of you!


Wow. this looks wonderful. I'm going to read this as soon as possible. Thanks for the review!


I actually felt that the later books in the series were just as good, but there is a sharp change in tone around book five or so. And I would second the recommendation of KB's fantasy; it's excellent.


Well, no one has to convince me: I'm in for the fantasy as well! (As soon as I get through some of my TBR pile...)


See, I've seen these at the library and done some serious Cover Judging. Good lord. Thanks for setting me straight.

This one has been on my tbr pile for a while now and it looks like I need to bump it up a bit after your review!! Thanks

I'm glad to hear the book was good because you are right, the cover is awful!


I read this book nearly five years ago. A freshman in high school and I loved it too! Ive read most of the series and it's awesome!


sorry for the second post, but yeah, all that you said is true, including about the cover, if that had been the cover when I first read it as a 14 year old I wouldnt have read it. I tried looking for the cover i had, but I cant find it!

Julie Carter

I have a habit of suggesting this one to people, so I'm taking credit even when I don't think it was specifically me.


I read through all these in real time, waiting, waiting, waiting for the next installment. Fortunately Baker writes FAST. The series is totally worth sticking to, all the way through to the end. There are special treats for lovers of California, Old Hollywood, Elizabethan English, Shakespeare, American noir fiction... It gets crazy at the end, but in the best possible ways. One of my favorites ever.


Just read and reviewed this on your rec and it is every bit as good as you said it is. The premise is just perfect.
