I loved this book! It is about a clothing designer who marries an actor who ends up famous and her life ends up turned upside down. It is a great read and a peek inside what it would be like if your own husband all of a sudden became famous!!
Plenty of women wonder what it would be like to be married to a movie star, but designer Kyra Felis finds out when she marries Irish actor Declan McKenna. When Kyra meets Declan in Las Vegas, he is on the cusp of stardom. The two have a whirlwind courtship, and Declan proposes after a few months. Kyra is reluctant to leave New York for L.A., but her love for Declan wins out. At first, it's just a matter of adjusting to the culture and attending a premiere here and there, but then Normandy is released to rave reviews and an eager, vast audience, and its star, Declan, and, by default, Kyra are launched into superstardom. Everyone wants to interview Declan, and the paparazzi follow the couple everywhere. Declan's success helps to launch Kyra's clothing line, but she is not sure she can deal with life in the spotlight. Caldwell's snazzy, gripping third novel gives readers an exciting taste of life in the fast lane, exposing the truth behind the fairy tale.
This is a fun read with good characters who are smarter than most around them and have their feet on the ground. It's hard to believe it was written by a woman who is a lawyer by day! If you love anything about fashion, new york city, Hollywood or the movies, Ireland, then there is something in here for you!
Clothing designer Kyra Felis has never been one to worship celebrities--she'd rather read a good book or make a blouse out of a tablecloth. She marries Hollywood man-of-the-moment Declan McKenna for love, with no inkling of how his notoriety will send her life spinning out of control.
But once Kyra reluctantly becomes a celebrity by association there's no turning back. And even though she has all the trappings of success, she can't do the things that make her happy--throw a party; drink a glass of wine (or four) at a quiet café; confide in her friends. When Declan's fame literally endangers Kyra's life, she starts to wonder, can she survive more than a year of living famously?
