Packed with passion, glamour and danger, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS is an unmissable glimpse into the fame game - and the price you have to pay to play love, life and lust in the fast lane. Katie's novels are packed with glamour and drama, but with great heart and warmth too. She has also written Wives v Girlfriends and Saints v Sinners.
Drop Dead Gorgeous by Katie Agnew
Laura McNaughton's life is almost perfect. She's young, pretty and she has a fabulous job on a glossy magazine, which involves interviewing celebrities (and air-brushing their personalities). But when she is offered a job presenting a trendy Friday night television show she can't resist the opportunity to experience fame first hand. Putting her puritanical Scottish upbringing, her intellectual boyfriend and her hippy best friend behind her, she soon hooks up with world-famous actress Lucy Lloyd and gorgeous, infamous rock god Ricky Jones, who introduce her to a hedonistic world of partying where appearance is everything and nothing really matters but sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. But as the stories about her private life become front page news, Laura begins to doubt those closest to her, and her life starts to spiral dangerously out of control.
Praise for Katie Agnew:
'Trust us, they don't come much bigger or better than this...Throw plenty of sex and scandal into the mix and you've found the perfect beach fodder. Just don't forget your SPF because you won't be shifting from that sun lounger all day. 5 stars'
'Exciting and surprising ... it's unputdownable'
'A scorching bonkbuster'
'A grown-up novel that excites from the off: Agnew has a keen eye on the dark side of the high life as well as its shallowness, and her writing is as lively as her plotting'
