Overview

From the bestselling author of Weekend in Paris, a brand- new novel that proves happy endings don't just happen in Hollywood.

American starlet Paige Carson is off to London to try her hand at Shakespeare, and prove that she deserves more than bimbo roles and Hollywood hunks who can't see beyond their own reflections. But stage acting is not quite what she expected. Neither is her landlord, Ed Hawkshead, a highfalutin documentary-maker who seems far from the charming, floppy-haired Brit of her daydreams.

Having a spoiled Hollywood brat—even one this attractive—as a tenant is Ed's worst nightmare. He's certain he will have to rescue her from trouble and is surprised when the tables are turned and he is the one needing help. Opposites attract as Paige and Ed must revise their assumptions about each other and rise to new challenges professionally.

Robyn Sisman has done it again, writing a rollicking romantic comedy that will warm readers' hearts as they fall in love with her delightful characters.

    Not much to read about

    I'm not sure if the book was as boring as I think or I just couldn't get past the female character. I couldn't dredge up one ounce of caring for the main character. She was whiny and woe is me when her life was good and the only things that needed change she could change just by being a real person instead of some Hollywood diva. I wouldn't recommend this one.

    Entertaining

    Paige Carson is a nitwit and there were several times I wanted to slap her. I had faith early in the story that she'd transform into something more but instead the story focuses more on her romance with Ed which was somewhat unconvincing as their characters are established apart rather than in relationship to each other. After the complete documentation of Paige as shallow and witless in the first half, I couldn't be convinced that her willful ignorance wasn't something needing to be fixed by some personal epiphany which she never achieves. There is not much in the way of self discovery, transformation or personal growth, which is where I thought this story was going, given the first half of the story in which she is clearly caught up in Hollywood superficiality and yearning for more. The story was good and really does read like a romantic comedy but it feels like there should have been several more pages wrapping up several character issues and story threads. Instead, the ending was rushed, anticlimactic, and rather sudden. Given who Paige is, I'm a bit confused as to how falling in love is the solution to her problems. I didn't even realize this was truly a romance until the end. Which isn't to say it doesn't have romantic elements but the foundation laid in the beginning never really gets built on and as a result, the book falls short of what it could have been.

    enjoyable contemporary romance

    Fearing her career is diving into made for TV movies older women roles Oscar winner Paige Carson needs a major success. She made a poor choice when she agreed to star in a horrific remake of Cleopatra. Paige is also losing juicy parts to younger actresses. --- However, Paige is euphoric when she is selected to star with superstar Jackson Rolfe in what looks like may be the box office hit of the year. However, her inane co-star makes Paige reconsider her career as he is as unprofessional of an actor she has had the misfortune to meet. When London stage calls her to perform Shakespeare, Paige leaves behind Hollywood dirt and the latest tabloid lies and shenanigans especially her rock star superstar father. In London she finds herself attracted to her snooty landlord, Ed Hawkstead, a documentary filmmaker struggling to break out he to his chagrin reciprocates as he does not want to want this Hollywood fluff dubbed by the press as Princess Paige. --- This enjoyable contemporary romance stars two likable opposites whose initial stereotype of the other makes each detest their feelings, but this is more Paige¿s tale since the first part focuses on her woes and Ed does not enter the stage until act two (about halfway into the novel). Still as Paige and Ed become acquainted they realize their preconceptions were false and allow their hearts to lead them. Readers will enjoy the romance between this fine couple. --- Harriet Klausner
