An excellent read; a pageturner. Intricate look at the publishing world seen from the experiences of several authors - with romance and revenge thrown in.

Not one of her better works. This fictional "tell-all" of the publishing world is so bogged down with name-dropping, inside jokes, and romans a clef that it loses sight of the story of the aspiring novelists.
