#AtoZChallenge: Q is for Queenie


This is one of those books that I read when I was about 12 or 13 that really affected me. I was totally engrossed in it that I just couldn't put it down. I'd love to read it again... not that it's like anything I tend to read these days.
It was a real rags to riches story. Here's the blurb:
The seductive and beguiling story of Dawn Avalon, who when wrongfully accused of a crime she didn't commit, flees her homeland to London where she becomes 'Queenie', a star of both the stage and screen.For some reason, it always surprised me that it was written by a man (Michael Korda), probably because I was more influenced by female authors back then, like Jilly Cooper, Danielle Steele and Jackie Collins.
Apparently it was made into a TV series but I never saw it. Did you?
Don't forget to download your FREE copy of Daisy Madigan's Paradise, a Morgan Sisters novella. Raven, the first book in my other series (The Raven Saga) is also FREE!


  1. I have never heard of it. I'll have to check it out.

  2. It was so long ago when I read it though... I hope it IS good!! :D
