The story follows a fashion intern whose fledgling career has taken an unexpected tumble. The book's slow start then gives way to the real fun: vintage Hollywood and a bit of intrigue. It's not a gripping tale, but it's enjoyable and makes for great summer reading by the pool.
The characters aren't well developed and the story line is kind of hard to follow, but if you're looking for some PG-rated fiction, this might be a good choice for your summer reading.

A Tale of Unexpected Friendship and Old Hollywood Glamour
Lauren Summers is hiding. Her fashion house internship should have launched her career, but a red carpet accident has left her blackballed. The only job she finds is unpaid, but comes with free lodging--a run-down cottage in the shadow of a cliff-side mansion. Unsure of what comes next, she's surprised to be contacted by a reporter researching a reclusive former Hollywood who lives in the nearby mansion.
Kendall Joiner wants Lauren's help uncovering the old woman's secrets. In return, she'll prove the red carpet accident was a publicity stunt so Lauren can regain her former job. With all her dreams in front of her, Lauren's tempted by the offer, but as she and the old woman get to know each other, Lauren realizes nothing is quite as it seems.
