Three’s A Crowd by Edwina Darke.
Manhattan editor Elan Moore thinks her dreams have come true when she is asked to manage an upcoming
celebrity memoir. Not only is her career taking off, but she has amazing friends, the perfect boyfriend and
finally she’s mastered the art of avoiding her mother. But when her oldest friend Luke comes back into her life,
things start to get complicated. To make matters worse, celebrity author Rox Wriothesly has no intention of
being managed. Elan soon realises that this ‘opportunity’ may be the catalyst that brings everything else
crashing down around her.
Sex and the City meets The Devil Wears Prada in this smart and funny story of life and love in New York.
Irrepressible You by Georgina Penney
You don’t become a notorious British celebrity without rubbing a few people the wrong way, which is why
writer and comedian Ben Martindale has decamped to Australia until the latest media frenzy dies down.
When he meets Amy Blaine, a perky blonde who dresses like a 1950s pin-up girl, he knows he’s hit the
satirical jackpot. He begins to fill his weekly London column with snarky observations about her life, clothes,
and even their most intimate moments. It doesn’t occur to him that Amy, who is letting her guard down for the
first time in her adult life, might be upset – after all, it’s hilarious, and his readers love her!
It isn’t until Amy discovers the extent of his betrayal that Ben begins to realise just how badly he’s cocked up
the best thing that ever happened to him. But is it too late?
Tweethearts by Nicole Haddow.
Jemima Starler loathes her job writing for the pregnancy magazine Placenta Monthly. To break the monotony,
she writes scandalous tweets about the magazine industry as her secret online identity, Maghag. Thankfully,
she also has her cute and talented housemate, Samson, to keep life interesting.
When her editor stoops to a new ethical low, Jemima’s reputation is suddenly on the line. She must find a
way to carve out a new career, but it’s hard to focus when Samson’s mixed signals are driving her crazy. And
when her handsome housemate is plucked from obscurity to star on a new reality TV show, everything
changes. It’s time for Jemima to trust her feelings instead of believing what she sees online, but has she
missed her chance?
