“Gorgeous goddesses seem to surround script-reader and wannabe movie-maker Anna Brown – from her deranged glamour-queen boss to her perfect, pouting flat-mates – for Anna, being less-than-beautiful is very hard to bear. With a dead-end job and a ghastly boyfriend to boot, she wonders if she can ever be a success. In fashion- and beauty-crazed London, perhaps being talented just isn’t enough. Enter Mark Swan, Britain’s hottest director. Rugged, reclusive and powerful, everybody wants a piece of him – from studio heads to supermodels. He could be Anna’s ticket to the top, but how can she ever hope to snag such a big star?
Fed up of being downbeat and dowdy, Anna decides to chase her dreams and, with a little help from her friends, embarks on a madcap scheme to get just what she’s after…
So I picked this book up in a charity shop (8 books for £1, best deal ever) which was a stroke of luck as I already have a couple of Louise Bagshawe’s books at home which I’ve really enjoyed. What I actually like most about this book is that the main character isn’t the gorgeous, perfectly proportioned, self assured woman which seems to feature in most of Louise’s other books. As far as the story goes this kept me interested and I finished the book in two days. It’s not really a serious book, so if you’re looking for something girly, light hearted and fun I’d really recommended this.
In fact I’d recommended anything of Louise Bagshawes, she’s a very talented writer and manages to pull off all different themes in her novels, for example this one is a bit of a chick flick, but another one of her books Destiny (big fan!) is more of a suspense/ thriller/ mystery with a bit of glamour thrown in.
Have you guys read any good books lately?
