Description

Lynsey Dixon never plans anything. She has no commitments and no responsibilities apart from her job at a London talent agency that specialises in neurotic actresses like Melanie Chaplin. After keeping her calm head in a crisis, Lynsey is offered a transfer to Los Angeles to help Melanie settle into a new television show. Lynsey can recognise an opportunity when she sees one. An opportunity for serious star spotting and sunny days. Melanie Chaplin is excited to be famous, but being famous can make you forget yourself. Soon she is wildly in love with a married man and pregnant by her womanising co-star, Fabien Stewart. Being a star can be stressful. And why, when her career is soaring, is she jealous of the young wannabes nipping at her Jimmy Choo heels? Serena Simon is the most beautiful girl in the world. She didn't exactly choose Hollywood. When you look like Serena, Hollywood is the only place to go. She has a plan and it's working. Fame is only a photoshoot away. Any minute now someone is going to find out that this sexbomb is a teenage runaway, just fourteen years old. When Lynsey finds Serena she agrees to help her. But junior assistants are not supposed to help anyone but their bosses. It's their little secret. But secrets rarely stay that way, especially in Hollywood. Melanie's reputation takes a nosedive as fame goes to her head. Serena tries to make it as a teenager in a very adult world. They both look to Lynsey for advice and support. If she wants to keep her head in Hollywood, Lynsey Dixon needs one hell of a plan.
