We gave it a B+

With a Jackie Collins-ish flair for soapy melodrama, Louise Bagshawe stylishly imagines pretty young things consumed with money, power, and romance. Sparkles unveils the scandalous secrets of the obscenely wealthy Massot clan as it struggles to keep its Paris-based haute jewelry firm afloat after the disappearance of family patriarch Pierre. What follows is a battle for control of Pierre’s family jewels (so to speak), forging a rift between his heiress wife, Sophie, and the couple’s ambitious son, Tom. A shady cast of lovers, friends, and associates stir the pot, cooking up several juicy subplots along the way. B+
