Comments The Beautiful and the Wicked

  • Jessica

    I received this book for free through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers.This book was as enjoyable as the first one. Lots of rich people spending ridiculous amounts of money. Like the first one, it keeps you guessing until the end.


  • Lyssa

    This book was not as good as the first one. Lila does get herself into some truly unique situations which make the story entertaining. However, the people on the yacht were unbearable, vile humans.


  • Donnell

    Much enjoyed the first book in this series, the RIch and the Dead. The idea about going back to a recent past is pretty cool. This second book was not as absorbing as the first, however. Perhaps because: 1. Most of the story takes place on a yacht--a luxury yacht, perhaps the most luxurious of yachts--but its still a limited location with narrow passages and a cell-size sleeping compartment (shared with a room mate) for the narrator.2. The people with whom you are stuck on this yacht--are the mo [...]

    Book Review & Giveaway: Last year I was approached about reading and potentially reviewing a contemporary detective novel that involved time travel. I like both kinds of novels but this one didn’t sound like a fantasy genre novel, aside from that pesky time travel thingy. The end of this little tale is that I loved Liv Spector’s novel, The Rich And The Dead, so when I learned Book #2, The Beautiful And The Wicked, was coming out, I could hardly wait. This Miami-based series features a fo [...]


  • Phillis

    It was as good as the first book, "The Rich and the Dead". This time Lila had to go back 11 years to find out who killed a very hated, very arrogant, billionaire on the night of his 50th birthday party. This party takes place on a mega yacht. Lila must secure passage as a ships stewardess, working the job, and trying to find a killer among the many guests attending the party. All have a good reason to want to see him dead. The one hitch is that the original murder was pinned on her sister whom L [...]


  • Karen Ress

    Great Read! This book was so entertaining that I couldn't put down. The time travel aspect drew me in to this thoroughly interesting mystery. I would recommend this anyone who likes whodunnits.


  • Anna

    Delicious garbage!


  • Kelli Mahoney

    Lila Day sure keeps your attention and she travels back in time once again. This time she's set on trying to clear her sister's name. I found I kept wanting to read to find out what happened next. Could it really be? How? Who? And then, Wow!


  • Carolyn Wilson

    Pretty far fetched but held my attention


  • April Mayer

  • Natalie

    I received this mystery as an early reviewer. I have not read Spector's first book, "The Rich and the Dead," which got good reviews. This one is entertaining.The plot is interesting and the conclusion unexpected. My copy is an uncorrected proof, so I'm confident "The Beautiful and the Dead" will undergo further editing before release. I'm sure typos and grammatical inconsistencies will be corrected, as well as noticeable multiple repetition of some words ("grabbed" and "sweet," for example, and, [...]


  • Denise Cornelius

    SPOILERSI bought this book because I love mysteries, the cover seemed intriguing, and it has pretty decent reviews.However it is completely and totally dreadful. The premise of the book (which I didn't know when I bought it) is a cop Lila that has the ability to time travel to solve mysteries which is sort of cool.The story or mystery is that Lila's sister Ava allegedly murdered a Billionaire named Jack on his yacht. So Lila goes back in time to when Jack was murdered to prevent the murder or if [...]


  • Mandy Alexander

    I received The Beautiful and the Wicked through first reads in exchange for an honest review. This was the second book in the Lila Day series and can be read as a stand alone. There is enough background information given for you to follow along. I have to admit I really wanted to read this book based on the cover; I mean it's a really great one. I don't normally like time travel books and mystery books are great if they catch me quickly. That being said this one started a bit slow for me. Once i [...]


  • Susan Beamon

    First of all, I don't usually read books that involve time travel. It usually doesn't work well. So I was a little hesitant to read this story, which I got free from LibraryThing. I am happy to say the time traveling was kept to a minimum, and handled very well. Beyond that, this is a very smart mystery. Can't say much about it because I don't want to spoil it for you. I can say that things are not what they seem. I was satisfied with the resolution of the mystery and with the way time travel wa [...]


  • Lori McD

    2.5-3 starsFalls apart perhaps because Lila is too vested in the outcome. She's too close and has already made up her mind what happened. The truth us very different and very convoluted.


  • Gina

    This book is an entertaining and quick read. It is about a time traveling former police detective. She goes back in time to solve a murder. The accused murdered was her sister, who disappeared following the incident.


  • Pam

    Entertaining. Had a gut feeling, thought I was wrong, then I was right.


  • Nicolás Samaniego

    It had me feeling.


  • Liz

    Murder mystery, time travel, rich people, exotic location, what's not to like!


  • Stormy Cole

    I just wished Teddy was featured more often.


  • Alicia Gard

    Another fun, easy readyou don't need to concentrate too much, just relax and enjoy. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series :-)


  • Rebecca L. Vallandingham

    Could not put it down I love this book it is a page Turner so much action in it love that the author has a time machine in it I think that is what makes it


  • Susie

    Not too bad. Lots of details, though. Could have been shorter.


  • Mikhael

    An enjoyable summer book. Kinda weird, but somehow it's easy to ignore the absurdity that she is traveling back in time.


  • Linda Johnson

    Lila Day goes back in time again this time though to solve a murder in which her sister has been accused of. This certainly was a fast paced thriller! Enjoy.


  • Beth

    Could not put this down!!! Inspector Lila Day travels to the past (just go with it) to prove her sister innocent of murders of a dot com billionaire.


  • Jackie Knapton

    Love reading these mysteries
