REVIEW: Chantal Scott has always been in awe of her older sister, Jett, a superstar. Chantal doesn’t know Jett. They have never bonded as sisters because over the years, Jett has been busy building her career. Nothing is more critical to Jett than fame and fortune. When their mother dies, Chantal sees this as a chance to get to know her famous sister. But Jett doesn’t feel the same way. Chantal is a reminder of things she would rather forget. While going through her late mother’s things, Chantal discovers a secret that rocks the foundation of her world. When she asks the questions no one will answer, she takes it upon herself to find the truth.

Chantal is a divorced mother with an adorable four-year-old son living a quiet life in her hometown. She has everything she needs except a close relationship with her famous sister. Jett has been a superstar since she was in her teens. She would do anything to maintain that status, including denying her family ties in a quiet Missouri town. She is fearful of her background becoming public knowledge.

BLIND AMBITION is a fascinating story of two women living a life of lies and deception, and only one is aware of the deceit. The other stumbles upon the truth by accident, and it sends her into a tailspin. This compelling narrative keeps you spellbound as it unfolds. Of course, this page-turner would not be complete without a bit of romance brewing in the mix. The pacing moves smoothly with no slowdown or wrinkles. The lively characters and superb writing make this book worth every moment of your time. Once I read the plot, I was hooked. Ms. Lively is a great storyteller, as evidenced by her many books.

BLIND AMBITION is an excellent read that I could not put down. I would definitely recommend it to others, especially if you enjoy a good mystery with spirited characters to make it enjoyable.
