BLOG TOUR: Beautiful People by Wendy Holden (Book Review 2010-49)

Product Description

"When she's good, she's very, very good, and Beautiful People finds Holden on steroids. Unmissable."
-Daily Mirror
A witty, utterly addictive novel from bestselling author Wendy Holden, Beautiful People is a tale wicked in its observations yet buoyant at its heart: an irresistible confection you'll want to devour immediately.
Darcy-a struggling English rose actress when The Call comes from L.A. An Oscar-tastic director. A movie to make her famous. The hunkiest costar in Hollywood. So why doesn't she want to go?
Belle-a size-zero film star but she's in big, fat trouble. Hotter than the earth's core a year ago, she's now Tinseltown toast after her last film bombed. Can she get back to the big time?
Emma-a down-to-earth, down-on-her-luck nanny trying to weather London's cutthroat childcare scene and celebrity mom whirlwinds. What will it take for her to get back in control of her own life?
Jet to London, Hollywood, and Italy; toss in a passionate star chef, a kindhearted paparazzo, and a reluctant male supermodel; and find Wendy Holden at her best-a smash international hit.

I have been a fan of Wendy Holden since I first read Fame Fatale.  She writes British Chick Lit that is just wonderful.  Beautiful People is another hit with me, in fact, I think it is her best work to date.  You are immediately sucked in by the characters and the plot which covers a lot of ground quickly.  This will be one of the summer's best beach reads. It is pure frothy fun!  If you enjoy Sophie Kinsella or Helen Fielding, you will love this author.
