This book was so much fun to read! From the first sentence, the author reels you in. Tess Drake, a spunky and sexy thirty-six year-old, has been working for the same London talent agency for ten years but now wants to go out on her own and open her own agency. When her boss dies in strange circumstances, Tess sees her opportunity and plans to leave with all her clients. The new boss, however, Cosima, a sort of Cruella Deville character, will do anything to stop her. But Tess has a very strong relationship with Dorothy, a quirky and very successful children’s book writer who has sworn to follow her at the new agency. It is an understatement to say that things will not go as planned for Tess.

Part mystery and part chick lit, this book has many unexpected twists and turns and is a great summer read.
