I just read Wendy Holden’s book Beautiful People, released this month from Sourcebooks.
Summary: This is a story about three different people: Darcy, a proper English actress, who gets a call from Hollywood for a huge part in a new blockbuster, Belle, who was a big star a year ago, but since her last film bombed, is yesterday’s news and Emma, a down-to-earth nanny, trying to survive in London’s childcare scene of crazy celebrity moms. Set in London, Hollywood and Italy, see how their worlds collide.
My Thoughts: I had read mixed reviews about Beautiful People, with some people saying it was too confusing and hard to follow and I didn’t find that to be the case at all. The main characters are all so different that it was easy to keep them and their storylines straight. It was fun to root for the good guys and wish terrible things on the bad and to see how the author tied all their stories together. I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see what happened and I was totally satisfied. I think I may have read some of her other books, but I’ll have to check into that because I definitely want to read more. A great, fun read!!
My Rating: 4/5
