Beauty by Louise Bagshawe

Lovereading view...

Set in the beauty industry, this is the rags-to-riches story of Dina, an unloved child who through grit, determination and flair eventually overcomes her setbacks and makes good. She is sabotaged all the way by bitter, jealous people. A lovely character whom you root for all the way through. This is a surprisingly good read, a cut above the norm.

If you like Louise Bagshawe you might also like to read books by Jackie Collins, Ilana Fox and Jo Rees.


Beauty by Louise Bagshawe

Dream Big. No Limits. Be Bold. Manhattan is there for the taking . Blend it. Sculpt it. Shape it. Use it...There isn't a woman on earth who doesn't have her beauty secrets. But for Dina Kane, beauty is more than just business. It's power. And it is the secret. She's dragged herself up from poverty to Park Avenue. She's rolled with the punches. And she's learned how to win. Now someone is out to destroy her, and all she's built. They've underestimated Dina Kane. She's staying at the top - and she's happy to wait for the perfect moment to exact her revenge...
