My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Secrets of the A-List the first book in a serial type series is an engaging read from start to finish!

The Marshall family is a high-profile, prominent family in Los Angeles. Harrison Marshall, husband to Mariella Santiago-Marshall, and father to Luc, Rafe, and Elana is in critical condition following a car wreck. As each family member learns of the news and races to the ICU of the local hospital, their personalities and backstories are revealed bit by bit. Luc is a successful cosmetic surgeon, his father's pride and joy in all ways except one—he didn't go into the family business. He has a girlfriend although there are hints that he may not be faithful. Rafe is sensitive and artistic, and very much adored by his protective mother. Elana is the wild child of the bunch who couldn't even be bothered to answer or look at any of the dozens of messages from her family regarding her father while she is “busy”—with a man who his not her fiancรฉ. Gabe is Mariella's nephew who for most of his life was raised with the Marshall children, and went into the Marshall family business but seems to be resented by his cousins. Joe, a family friend and business partner is not much more than introduced in this installment, but hints suggest he will be an important character as the saga continues. Lingering in the shadows of the story is likely the most important character, The Fixer. This character sounds like he may be a fictional Howard Stricklin. I love ‘Ray Donovan’ the Showtime series, so The Fixer story playing into this twisted plot is intriguing. Even more curious are hints that the wreck may not be an accident and that The Fixer may be fixing more than he bargained for. I enjoyed this quick read and was happy to find that even though it is a serial, it didn’t end with a cliffhanger. The colorful cast of characters and the enthralling plot will entice a reader to the next in the series.
