Publisher's Write-Up

Three women in search of a dream - but one of them with a nightmare in her heart.

Screenwriter Megan Silver is a waitress in an L.A. burger joint, and her life is going nowhere fast. But she has an idea worth a million dollars - if only she can get someone to read her script...

Supermodel Roxana Felix is the richest, bitchiest catwalk queen of them all. But it's not enough; she wants to be a movie star and she'll let nothing stand in her way...

Studio president Eleanor Marshall is the most powerful woman in Hollywood, yet the romantic inside her longs for love - and a baby. But right now she desperately needs a smash hit to save her job...

'A funny and raunchy story.'

Daily Mirror

'An addictive, erotic blockbuster... Once again Bagshawe has excelled herself.'

I cannot think which Jackie Collins book this reminds me of, but I am absolutely certain that in one of them, there is an actress with a big secret, and an agent and a big actor, and guess what? Now this is not a bad thing, it takes you to a world, where, if you are lucky, you can make a very nice life for yourself, but it would also appear to be a world that can suck you dry and spit you out.

This book seemed to me to be slightly different; there are three women whose lives we are peering in on. Normally we are treated to only one view, so this is a bit more complicated, especially as they are all rather at odds with each other. This is not really about female friendships and bonding, more about the decisions that you may take to try to get and keep the life that you want to live.

I would say that for sheer escapism, this would be excellent to take to the beach, to sit with big sunglasses on and drink cocktails. But beware, if you take this you will not want to put it down and so will need more sunblock on than you may have thought… you have been warned…
