THE CHAPERONE

by Kyra Petrovskaya Wayne
Read Review                         

Kyra’s novel: The Chaperone
Natalie Cummings hates being a Hollywood call girl. She would’ve given anything to be an educated professional woman.

When an opportunity presents itself to change her occupation, she grabs it, even though it means  keeping a secret for the rest of her life. Following an ad in a newspaper, Natalie accepts a job as a chaperone for two teenaged girls on their prolonged vacation in Europe.

Natalie is ecstatic, however soon her enthusiasm is rudely shaken: the young girls from good Los Angeles families are not what they were supposed to be. They are wicked.

As Natalie battles with the girls on their travels through Europe, there are three men who influence their lives—for good or evil.

When the travelers finally return to America, one of them arrives with a baby . . .

Judge’s Commentary:

What did you like best about this book?
A most unusual plot, the idea of a call girl taking on the job of chaperone for two teenage girls. These girls are more than Natalie, the heroine expected. All of the characters are three-dimensional and unusual. The story has many layers and surprises along the way, with a good helping of romance.

Thje dialogue is most-definitely realistic, reveals character and moves the plot along. All the settings, and there are many, are well-described. the ending is a big surprise. Good job. The Chaperone would make a good movie.

How can the author improve this book?
No suggestions, the author did a great job—unique plot, good writing. Hopefully, the promotion plan is also good: booksignings, presentations for libraries, book clubs, service and social groups, and exploit the Internet.
