She Regrets Nothing is an interesting twist on a modern glam Cinderella where Cinderella uses her family for all it's worth and Prince Charming is anything but. Laila intrigued me from the beginning and even now, I don't really know how I feel about her. As Laila maneuvered her way through the Lawrences, my feelings for her see-sawed from 'you go girl!' to asking myself if she had a mental problem. Although, as Laila states, she is playing the part of the chameleon; and she does it amazingly well. I do wish that I got to see more of the true Laila, but perhaps we got to see her in the end. It was Liberty that captured my full attention, I loved her authenticity and the way she both accepted and declined parts of her expected role within society. The writing skillfully balanced mystery, suspense, complicated relationships and family drama against the backdrop of Manhattan's posh social scene. I was probably as awed as Laila at some of the clubs and people in it, I was equally amazed when I found out that Mustique Island was a real place. I became even more pulled into the story near the end as things began to fall apart and I wondered how Laila would keep her carefully crafted life afloat.
