For this review I received an actual paperback copy of the book which I was extremely excited about!
Fame, glory and… foul play!
Jessie was a shop worker dreaming of the big time, then YouTube found her. But staying in the limelight requires meticulous management: pop stars are made not born.
With awards night approaching, the pressure’s on for Tito, Jessie’s manager, to whip her into shape. Getting so close wasn’t in the contract, but then neither was him being murdered in Spain.
Alone and scared of the negative publicity, Jessie turns to Mack, her account manager at Eternal Forever, the UK’s first digital legacy management agency. But Mack’s got his own issues: the company’s fast running out of cash, his key developer’s on the turn and a blogger’s suicide looks suspicious.
With the assistance of J-Pop, Mack’s assistant and wannabe reality TV star, Jessie turns sleuth. But in a world where everybody’s watching, it’s hard to escape. Reputation is everything and some people will do anything to protect it.
Syl Waters is not an author I have previously encountered so I was intrigued to get started on this book. The whole premise was interesting, the idea that you are able to stay alive online even after you die is something I can imagine a lot of people would buy into, although waiting for someone to croak it before you can get to work is somewhat unnerving.
The one thing that did strike me about this book is that it would really only, in my opinion, appeal to readers in a certain age bracket. It most certainly felt like a young adult novel as it would only appeal to those who had an understanding or keen interest in social media and the online world.
Eternal Forever is an easy read with some likeable characters. The genre ‘cosy mystery’ sums the book up, a book you can cosy up with at the end of a long day with a cup or tea and a biscuit. Happy reading!
Most people know crazy cat ladies are a ‘thing’, but I’m a proud crazy guinea pig lady! I love fun in the sun and plenty of cocktails. My happy place is flip flops. I write stories to keep me company – my characters ensure I’m never lonely and always smiling (when I’m not tearing my hair out!)
