Lucy Tilley dreams of a career in show business. But this isn’t quite what she had in mind…
This year’s Cinderella pantomime is the hottest production in town. What’s more, Lucy is starring alongside Ryan Aspall: famous TV actor, sex symbol and potential love of her entire life. One teeny problem – Lucy is tripping the light fantastic as… the back end of the comedy cow. Surely nothing kills a flirty moment quite like wearing a massive set of udders?
At least she has the support of glamorous (if potentially flammable) Charmaine; a reality star diva of a Cinderella, who Lucy is completely fascinated by. But behind the fame and beauty, Charmaine is not all she seems.
With more drama off the stage than on it, and everyone wanting to be star of the show, will Lucy find the confidence to make it out of the cow suit and into the spotlight this Christmas?
Firstly thank you to Kerry at Novelicious for sending me a copy of this book to review. This of course in no way affected my review.
I loved Lucy. I thought she was great. She was really nice and would do anything for anyone. Her only problem she had absolutely no confidence in herself. A bit of a problem for someone who performs…on a stage…. in front of lots of people. I did want to slap her for following Charmaine around like a little puppy dog.
Ugh Charmaine. I hate her. I litteraly could not stand her. Any time she was mentioned I wanted to roll my eyes. She was a selfish little tramp. I just wanted to punch her for being so mean.
I love love love Ben. I thought he was so sweet. I was sitting there the whole time thinking wouldn’t it be great if he ends up with Lucy. I mean they are like perfect for each other.
I love Lenin. I felt sorry for him because Charmaine clearly couldn’t give two craps about the little dog. I thought the elf outfit Lucy bought him was sweet. I really wanted Lucy to take him away from Charmaine and keep him.
I was very happy about the ending of this book I thought it was perfect.
This is a fantastic Christmas read.
About the Author:
Holly started her life as a child. When she grew substantially taller and learnt how to read, she decided that she’d jolly well like to write books. Whilst at college, Holly had a slight change in her career focus and decided to become a marine biologist. On discovering that she sucked at science and that her future job was unlikely to involve monitoring anything larger than sea plankton, Holly went back to the drawing board and got a Bsc in Psychology instead. She studied with Scriptwriting North and wrote her first film, along with a number of shorts and a sitcom pilot. After several years of writing, rewriting, and hiding stuff for posterity on her hard drive, she sent her first novel to The Marsh Agency where she is now represented by Hannah Ferguson. She is currently working on her second full length novel and wondering how to lose the weight she’s put on whilst writing her last book. Her first book, A Cinderella Christmas, is out this November.
