Fame, glory and… foul play!
Jessie was a shop worker dreaming of the big time, then YouTube found her. But staying in the limelight requires meticulous management: pop stars are made not born.
With awards night approaching, the pressure’s on for Tito, Jessie’s manager, to whip her into shape. Getting so close wasn’t in the contract, but then neither was him being murdered in Spain.
Alone and scared of the negative publicity, Jessie turns to Mack, her account manager at Eternal Forever, the UK’s first digital legacy management agency. But Mack’s got his own issues: the company’s fast running out of cash, his key developer’s on the turn and a blogger’s suicide looks suspicious.
With the assistance of J-Pop, Mack’s assistant and wannabe reality TV star, Jessie turns sleuth. But in a world where everybody’s watching, it’s hard to escape. Reputation is everything and some people will do anything to protect it.
Eternal Forever is an intriguing concept. It definitely makes you think about the footprint we leave online. It’s actually kind of a scary thought, if you think about it and Syl Waters makes you think!
There are many characters on this novel, and at first, it is a little jarring. The seemingly have no connection, and as you follow their journeys, you may wonder where it is all heading.
Patience will reward you with a clever connection toward the end of the novel. It is super interesting how the charactets connected and I thought it was really awesome.
Overall, this is a thinker. I really enjoyed it and would recommend.

Most people know crazy cat ladies are a ‘thing’, but I’m a proud crazy guinea pig lady! I love fun in the sun and plenty of cocktails. My happy place is flip flops. I write stories to keep me company – my characters ensure I’m never lonely and always smiling (when I’m not tearing my hair out!)
