by Barbara K. (Brooklyn, NY) The Look of Love by Mary Jane Clark
This pleasant, fast paced, nicely detailed book was a 'quick read' that offered a view into the world of spas, Hollywood, plastic surgery, a monastery and the art of baking. There was also a mystery to solve and clues were interspersed throughout. The characters were realistic, especially the relationships between fathers and daughters. There is also an emphasis on how some women view their appearances in often unrealistic ways, giving the reader something to think about. Baking details, plus a recipe are an added bonus. This story flowed so smoothly that reading it was a 'mini vacation.' I would recommend it as a fun, escape novel.

by Georgette I. (Oxford, GA) The Look of Love
I can only hope that the other novels by Mary Jane Clark are better than her latest, "The Look of Love." The book is not very well written and feels choppy due to the short chapters. (Some are only a page long) The story line is adolescent and predictable. I found myself skimming the last few chapters just to get finished.
