I’ve always loved me some stars, and the five I just received from Readers’ Favorite for my book LONG LEGS and TALL TALES: A Showgirl’s Wacky, Sexy Journey to the Playboy Mansion and the Radio City Rockette are some of my favorite, sparkly beauties. Take a peek at the glowing, star-quality review below:
(Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite)
Long Legs and Tall Tales by Kristi Lynn Davis is a fascinating tale of a simple girl’s journey from being a Midwestern bumpkin to becoming one of the world’s loved entertainment stars. In this memoir, Kristi Lynn lifts the veil and reveals what it takes to be an accomplished show-girl, singer, and dancer, performing with the likes of the famous Radio City Rockettes and Playboy Mansion, and rubbing shoulders with showbiz icons such as Buddy Ebsen, Paige O’Hara, Susan Anton, Juliet Prowse, Maurice Hines, Jack Jones, and Rip Taylor.
Kristi Lynn Davis’ journey to stardom was one fraught with challenges, but it does have a lot of lessons for anyone who wants to create his or her own path towards success. The prose is beautiful and gorgeous, and the author lights up the hearts of readers with a quality of humor that is rare to find. Even when she recounts the frustrations she’s met along her path, she does so with a lighthearted humor that communicates warmth and gets readers sympathizing with her. At times it is hilarious, then it gets serious, and no one could read this without becoming enmeshed in the multiple sentiments that punctuate the raw and refined moments of a showgirl’s life. This is one of those memoirs that will most certainly offer a lot of insight into what goes on behind the scenes in the entertainment business.
Long Legs and Tall Tales is spellbinding, the kind of book that is hard to put down. Kristi Lynn’s story is one that fans of celebrity memoirs will love to read because it is a beautiful story beautifully told. It is one of the rare memoirs I have read and one I will be recommending for the author’s honesty and courage.
