THE YEAR OF LIVING FAMOUSLY
When struggling fashion designer Kyra Felis marries Declan McKenna, an Irish actor on the verge of superstardom, both her career and life change dramatically. She suddenly becomes the designer to the stars and worries that her overnight popularity is driven by her movie-star husband and not her talent.
She also has a hard time dealing with the effects of Declan's escalating stardom: his long hours, the paparazzi, tabloid misquotes, never-ending infidelity rumors and overzealous fans.
Kyra wants things to be the way they were when she and Declan were first married, but is that possible? With a realistic heroine and plenty of celebrity topics (such as award shows), Caldwell's third Red Dress Ink novel is sure to please celebraholics and chick lit fans alike. (Nov., 336 pp., $12.95)
