lilly\girl in times square

I was confused looking at the reviews lily only recieved 3stars and the girl in times square 5 same book people well the story was complex troubling but its story was credible and its an story that i enjoyed, glad that i took the time to check both book reviews and realizing that they were the same before i brought girl in time square i brough lily at a much cheaper price

Ultimately a love story

Lily has won the lottery, has her best friend and roommate disappear, gets cancer, finds love, and has to deal with a very disfunctional, and selfish family. Found nothing redeeming about most of her family. While Lily is in a fight for her life, her Mother's busy complaining about her problems, and dismissing Lily's. The relationship betwwen Lily and Spencer is the bright light of the book. Just wish I know what happened to her at the end of the book.

Love, Love, Love Paullina Simons' books

Just one of many engrossing ( and sometimes disturbing) books from Paullina Simons. This book gets your attention and keeps it throughout the book. When its over, you will be wishing that it wasn't.

Once Again Paullina Simons Delivers

I've been a fan of Paullina Simons ever since I once stumbled across The Broze Horseman. Since then I've read every other Paullina Simons book I can get my hands on. If I absolutely had to compare it to another Simons novel I'd compare it to Tully in that it's very much a character study, but really it's not all that similar. It's new literary ground for Simons. Basically the plot deals with a 24 year old New Yorker named Lily, who sort of floats through life. She's broke and afraid to commit to anything. Suddenly several unexpected events occur at once and the ever superstitous Lily is shaken to the core: Her best friend and roommate, Amy, goes missing suddenly, and Lily wins $18 million in the lottery. Lily is terrified to cash in her ticket because she's waiting for her luck to run out (which she thinks will happen by something bad happening to Amy). But Lily can't escape her fate even by not cashing in her ticket. She's diagnosed with an extrememly rare form of leukemia. On the verge of death Lily suddenly realises that she can't bear to leave the life that she's been afraid to commit to. She's fallen in love with Spencer, the detective in charge of looking for Amy. Meanwhile Spencer has uncovered disturbing evidence linking Amy's disappearance to Lily's brother Andrew, and the consequences of a case from his past have come back to haunt him (Simons fans might remember Spencer from the book "Red Leaves"). The plot sounds confusing but that's because the book seems to defy genre- it's a love story (Lily and Spencer), a mystery (what happened to Amy? How was Andrew involved?) a family drama (wait to you read about Lily's family!) and the story of Lily coming to find herself as she fights for her life, and tries to fight Spencer's demons so that he can share that life with her. Anyway, I recommend it to all of Simon's fans, and I can't wait to read her next book.

Stunning !!!!

This book took me totally by surprise - this is the story of Lily, a 25 year old girl living in New York, whose flatmate and bestfriend Amy suddenly goes missing. In comes Detective Spencer O'Malley, who by searching for Amy unravels more than Lily and himself could ever have imagined. This is an amazing story of a girl struck by luck, both good and bad, who tries to make her way through life when revelations on herself, her family and her loved ones come crashing down on her. Paullina Simmons has done an amazing job with this difficult story. I read the book in less than a week and couldn't wait to find out about Lily, Spencer, and those around them. Truly truly wonderful book, I cannot recommend it enough.
