The Bette Davis Club Reviews
The Bette Davis Club was written by Jane Lotter. It is her only novel and she self-published it shortly before her death. However, after her death, her daughter was approached by a publisher and it was republished by them. Jane simply loved writing and did it for the sheer joy of it. She insisted her children read good literature, heard good storytelling, and watched classic movies. The joys she shared with her children show up in her book.

Truly enjoyed this book!! Easy read and sometimes I chucked out loud. If you need a in between book to read why not pick this one.
The forward written by the authors daughter was touching. While reading this book I would stop and think about the passion for writing the author had until her final days.
I enjoyed this book. I liked the writing, the characters, the references to actors that have passed but are not forgotten, the old classic movies, the locations, all of it.
It took me a few days to read only because I wanted it to last knowing that the author had passed away and there wouldn't be another book of hers to read. ...more
I completely love this book. It's perfect in every way. It's fun where it needs to be fun, serious where in needs to be serious. Everything is deftly handled and appears effortless, which is the mark of a very well-written novel.
What a piece of trite garbage, and no amount of emotional manipulation in the forward changes that.
Not sure how to rate this. The book is either a YA or romance and they aren't my favorite genres. But I did enjoy the book, a fast listen to enough action to keep it interesting along with a past and current romance. Don't think I'll read more by this author.
A “road trip” book for the “over forty” set. So much fun!
The Hollywood elite.
A runaway bride.
A vintage sports car.
A cross country romp.
A flawed heroine.
A damaged hero.
Not one, but two, mysterious manuscripts.
A maniacal bad guy.
A lesbian dance competition.
A tragic love affair.
The voice of reason in the form of an always-rational best friend.
A failing business,
And the chance at a multi-million dollar payoff at the end of it all.
What more could you possibly want in a quick, fun read on a Sunday aft ...more
