My Review: Amanda Reynolds is a new author to me, so this was a new type of book. It’s interesting, engaging and full of intrigue. Larissa/ Ris was a regular person, working as a waitress and then she became a social media influencer due to her marriage to a rich older man named Miles Fox. Ris reminds me of some of characters seen on TOWIE. You know the perfect illusion type? Add Gail the Personal Assistant and a number of interviews that tell the story of Number 56 set in a rich prestigious home. I love that the Author reminds the reader that we can only ever give 100%. It’s a sentiment I share a lot. No such thing as 110%.

The Assistant

I know many things about Larissa.

I know what she eats, which must-have brands she applies to her face, and the price of each carefully selected ‘piece’ in her multi-million-pound home in Belgravia.

Because Ris, as she is known to her many followers, likes to share.

And now I’m here, in her home, watching her every move.

Entrusted with her secrets and running her diary from the bijou basement flat, I’m on hand to fulfil Ris’ every need. Her right-hand woman. But what she doesn’t know is why I’m really here.

I’ve put a lot on the line to get this job, and now my plan can begin.

I’ve waited long enough.
