|Spun by Catherine McKenzie is the follow-up novella to her novel Spin. You can read my review of Spin here.
Spun is told in the first person perspective of former ‘It’ Girl Amber Sheppard.
Amber has been two years sober but nobody believes her and she has plenty of problems. They include her ex-boyfriend movie star Connor Parks, the secret her publicist Olivia is keeping, the gossip spread by the media, her attention seeking parents and dealing with the odd craving for the booze.
One night Connor demands Amber’s attention. He summons her to his private jet, it’s about to take off and Amber makes a decision that will change her life forever.
How does Amber deal with the consequences of her choice?
And can Amber resolve the problems in her life in a way that suits all?
Although not much actually happens in Spun, fans of Spin will find the book a satisfactory ending to Amber’s story. The description is good, the characters completely plausible and writers voice is engaging.
