Marina in a Green Dress

Marina in a Green Dress
   ~Alan Davidson
Publisher ~ Straw Hat
Published ~ 20 May 2012

My Rating ~ 4 out of 5

Jessica Tye is new to London. Her parents don’t believe in her going to University and since she has to support herself and get a job, she decides to go to London to do it. She gets a crappy job, a crappy room in a boarding room and a so-so boyfriend. She becomes fascinated with a West End stage musical called Marina and she’s even more fascinated with the lead Kennedy Orr. She writes a long letter to him that she has no intention of posting, but her boyfriend gets miffed and posts it to teach her a lesson. When Kennedy Orr shows up her life takes an exciting turn. But is it a good turn or a bad one?

An enjoyable well-written read with interesting characters and an intriguing plot. I didn’t know what to think about Kennedy Orr and his sudden interest in a rural girl recently moved to the big city. It had sinister undertones and Jessica seemed to be under his spell. I liked the build up and the conclusion. I’d be interested in reading more by Alan Davidson.
