Review

Hollywood superstar Lissa Roman thinks her fourth spouse Gregg Lynch is seeing another woman. Lissa puts up with a lot from her men, but refuses to accept womanizing. Will she toss Gregg out of her life?

Lissa's daughter Nicci feels confused between her fiance Evan Richer and her future brother-in-law Brian. She loves both of them yet finds she is more attracted to Brian. Will she choose Brian over Evan?

Lissa visits private investigator Michael Scorsinni to make inquiries into Gregg's philandering. When Lissa and Michael first meet, a spark ignites, but both keep the relationship strictly business. Michael has tapes of Gregg's cheating and promises to handle everything required to throw him out of Lissa's home. Will Lissa and Michael follow up on that initial attraction?

Meanwhile ex-con Eric Vernon sets a plot in motion to kidnap Nicci. He pretends to be gay to attain information from Lissa's assistant Danny and begins to follow Nicci to learn her habits. Will Eric succeed in abducting Nicci?

Jackie Collins is a strange phenomenon that defies the logic of literature. Though the readers know its fluff, Ms. Collins somehow hooks you for no logical reason into a one-sitting read in which you feel totally entertained but not sure why. The HOLLYWOOD WIVES -- THE NEW GENERATION fits that classification as the story contains two intriguing major subplots and three other unnecessary but enticing minor subplots. Ms. Collins has done it again, as her fans will savor her latest contemporary fiction. Will the audience finally understand why we love Ms. Collins?
