Beautiful People by Wendy Holden

A hilarious tale from Sunday Times Number 1 bestselling author Wendy Holden, set in the world of celebrity Fame, love and happiness. Can anyone have it all? Darcy's a struggling English-rose actress when The Call comes from LA. An Oscar-tastic director.

A movie to make her famous. The hunkiest co-star in Hollywood. So why doesn't she want to go? Belle's 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? When the two women lock horns over men, movies and megadiets, there's more drama than even Hollywood can handle. And after a celebrity nanny, reluctant supermodel and passionate star chef enter the mix, things get seriously hot and spicy.


'As exciting and explosive as her previous offering.****' * HEAT * 'What binds it all together so well is Holden's acerbic yet ultimately kind-hearted social satire' * DAILY MAIL * 'Fun and irrepressible, Holden claims Jilly Cooper's crown' * Woman & Home * 'An indulgent and entertaining break from real life' * Candis *'
