It's Up to You, New York Will Holly find love in the city where dreams are made?

Author: Tess Daly Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/05/2013

Will Holly find love in the city where dreams are made? Fielding calls from disgruntled customers on a crispbread telesales careline isn't exactly where Holly Collins saw herself in life. Living in a shoebox flat and working in a windowless building on an outer London industrial estate were never quite what she'd had in mind. So when Holly is picked from obscurity to take part in Street Scout, a television series on the hunt for fashion's next big model, life finally seems to be taking a turn for the better for the happy-go-lucky twenty-something. Surely this is her big moment? But Holly knows only too well that dreams are just that and when it feels like everything - and everybody - is conspiring against her, Holly heads for New York with her best friend Meg. The magic of Manhattan has Holly in its grasp: strutting down 5th Avenue and drinking two too many cosmopolitans, taking romantic carriage rides in Central Park and standing at the top of the Empire State building she can scarcely believe how far away the real world seems. But when Holly is faced with the biggest decision of her life can she make the fairy tale become a reality?

The Camera Never Lies A laugh out loud tale of life in the spotlight

Author: Tess Daly Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/04/2012

Britt Baxter is unaware of the effect she has on people. A big-hearted, no nonsense northern girl, she naturally looks for the best in everyone she meets, but in her attempts to make it as a model she finds she struggles against being pinned down on the casting couch by the most unlikely people... So when a happy accident lands her a career as a presenter on breakfast television, it looks as if she has made it out of the modelling world of close-ups and cattle calls and into the big time - or at least daytime TV. But scarcely has Britt had time to wonder at how far she has come, when backstage machinations propel her with ever increasing speed through a series of trapdoors and she soon realises that the drama backstage far eclipses anything that happens in front of the camera. 'Fun, sad and packed with glamour and deceit, this brilliantly written read will have you hooked.' 5* Closer 'It's a whirlwind of glitz, glamour and sex.' Heat 'The gorgeous and fearless Tess has stuck her neck out and written a delightfully sharp and well-observed novel (4 stars)' Mirror 'Tess has written a brilliant debut full of memorable characters and gasp-out-loud scenarios.'

A big-hearted, no-nonsense northern girl, she naturally looks for the best in everyone she meets, but in her attempts to make it as a model she finds she struggles against being pinned down on the casting couch by the most unlikely people... So when a happy accident lands her a career as a presenter on breakfast television, it looks as if she has made it out of the modelling world of close-ups and cattle calls and into the big time - or at least daytime TV. But scarcely has Britt had time to wonder at how far she has come, when backstage machinations propel her with ever increasing speed through a series of trapdoors and she soon realises that the drama backstage far eclipses anything that happens in front of the camera. Tess Daly has written a fast-paced novel with perfect comic timing and as many twists and turns in the plot as her heroine has costume changes. With language that fizzes on the page, enough romance to make the Sex and the City girls blush and a cast of characters that includes American-smoothie heartthrob Hollywood reporter Josh Bailey, Rise and Shine's co-hosts Cherry Smith - known for her tinkling laugh and penchant for toyboys - and lecherous family man Ken Chudleigh who always has a hand in the cake tin. The Camera Never Lies is both hilarious and hair-raising, a glamorous and revealing tale of love behind the scenes from the popular Strictly Come Dancing presenter. 'Fun, sad and packed with glamour and deceit, this brilliantly written read will have you hooked.' 5* Closer 'It's a whirlwind of glitz, glamour and sex.' Heat 'The gorgeous and fearless Tess has stuck her neck out and written a delightfully sharp and well-observed novel (4 stars)' Mirror 'Tess has written a brilliant debut full of memorable characters and gasp-out-loud scenarios.'
