Audiobook on the Channel: Final Destination Looks Could Kill By Nancy A. Collins. Looks Could Kill sweeps you into the ultra-glamorous world or supermodels and fashion photographers. When an upcoming starlet is horribly disfigured trying to save her friends, she is given an unexpected second chance. All she has to do is help Death do away with her friends.

It may go a little over board with detail (not a bad thing), but it was magnificent. Nancy A. Collins has written a thrilling science fiction novel about conceited women with deep insecurity about their looks and their abilities. They are all about themselves and how they appear to others. She develops the characters so well you feel as if you know them. All the brand name dropping got a bit tedious but actually, since they were models, name brands are what they are all about. It was a very entertaining novel and if bizarre is your thing, this is the book for you.

Favorite book out of the 5 final destination series. It may go a little over board with detail (not a bad thing), but it was magnificent. Lended it to a friend and never got it back so i had to buy it again. Worth the money.

Sherry, one of a group of supermodels all named after various wines, is suddenly visited with a vision as she and the other models and their boyfriends get ready to board a cruise ship to celebrate a successful season. The models all heed her advice and don't get on the ship. All except the head of the modeling agency, Merlot, who arranged the party and she ignores Sherry's warning. Sure enough, before the ship leaves the harbor it is hit by a cigarette boat and begins to sink. All the models are so grateful that they listened to Sherry, even though they still don't understand how she really knew. Sherry is hurt badly by flying debris and remains in the hospital for some time in a coma. She has severe burns and it looks as if her modeling career is over.

Eventually Sherry regains consciousness but she is so marred that none of the other models really wants to look at her or be around her. She becomes depressed. What will she do without her good looks? Then Death visits her in human form and tells her there is a solution and she can get her looks back. Does Sherry want to take it?

Sherry's modeling career has finally taken off. She is now one of the most beautiful women in the world, sought after by many. But her life changes when she gets a vision of the near future. (To know how and why, you will have to read the book.) Sherry knows the ship everyone is boarding will never get out of the harbor. Everyone, including herself, will die. Sherry tells all her friends and co-workers exactly what is about to happen. Several are convinced enough to stay off the ship and the group watches as the ship they were about to board goes down to a watery grave. Sherry is the only one harmed on the dock, hit by flying debris.

When Sherry finally gets released from the Burns Center she is still horribly scarred. Her career is over. Those she saved are waiting in her apartment with a surprise party and a gift. Only one out of the group ever came to visit Sherry during her months of hospitalization. That was Cabernet, the pregnant one. Then the group gives Sherry an extremely thoughtless gift, a Venetian mask molded to her previous facial features so her scarred face would not scare those around her.

Then DEATH offers Sherry a deal. DEATH will give Sherry back her full beauty and spare her life, if she kills her so called friends. Sherry must kill them in the order they were due to die months ago. With each death, some of her beauty will return. However, all must die before the baby of Cabernet is born.

***** As the reader, all I could think was that if her friends/co-workers had not ignored her or humiliated her, Sherry would never have agreed to help DEATH. This is part of the "Final Destination" series. But you do not need to have read the previous books. (I have not.) Each book is a story in itself. And oh! What a story this one is! This takes the "What If" question to a whole new level. Highly Recommended! *****

Other books in this series have left me extremely disappointed, so I was rather plesantly surprised when I got to the end of this book and found I was extremely hooked to the story and found the plot actually not half-bad.

Very simply put, this is the high-stakes world of fashion, media and limelight, where looks are everything and 'friends' are not as they seem. Backstabbing happens so often and you will not know who to trust.

A young model saves her friends from a ship's disaster and results in her own face getting horribly disfigured. To save her skin (literally), she makes a deal with the Grim Reaper to exchange her beauty for her friends' lives, in other words, if she helped the Reaper get rid of them and right the obstruction of death, he would restore her former beauty and let her live.

Each of the characters is well-developed and there is already a pre-existing story for each of them, which Nancy cleverly uses to get the reader to sympathise or understand, and then gruesomely kills them off. End of story. The ending I liked especially because it was clever, witty and very well-written without being melodramatic or even, sappy.

However, I thought the final twist was not as surprising or 'twist-y' as it could have been. It left me a little sore, wanting for more, but at the same time thankful that the journey had been completed. A piece of writing that can invoke such oxymoronic feelings in me definitely deserves these 5 stars.
