The New York Times  bestselling authors of  Celebutantes return with a dazzling new novel set among the star-studded crowds of the Cannes Film Festival, where everyone's hoping to discover, sign, screw or become the Next Big Thing.  And a three-picture deal would be nice.    

Lola Santisi--CEO of a struggling fashion line, reformed Actorholic and daughter of Hollywood Royalty--is now not only bicoastal, she's  Bi-Lolar: That is the condition which causes her to swing like a pendulum between the opposing poles of the fashion world in New York and the real world with her Doctor Boyfriend in Los Angeles.  She hardly knows which shoe fits her anymore: the Louboutin stiletto or the Croc. As Lola tries to launch Julian Tennant's new dress line, it looks like they're about to get their next big break: his wedding dresses have been chosen to feature in the top film at the Cannes Film Festival. And suddenly Lola is staging a full-blown couture show on a yacht -- in the middle of the Med.  Think those super models had trouble walking down the catwalks at Fashion Week?  With an unexpected finale twist, this time it's Lola who's tumbling off the runway.  

Having recently endured a disastrous break-up with Lola's brother Christopher, Kate Woods, Lola's BFF and CAA's rising star agent, is newly single, and focused 24-7 on her clients. The only thing worse than thinking it was a good idea for Kate to date Lola's brother, is thinking it was a good idea for Kate to put one of her most loose-cannon clients, Nic Knight, in Lola's father's movie. Among Kate's other mega star clients is Saffron Sykes whose appearance on the cover of  Vain magazine in Julian Tennant could be the difference between Julian Tennant, Inc. weathering the economy or going bust.

As Lola fights to survive the Cannes Film Festival, will she get swept into the French Riviera's riptide of glamour and superficiality?  Are  real love and couture mutually exclusive?  Or can Lola have it all -- the good doctor  and  her Louboutins. With her father and brother vying for the same prize, her mother starring in her new  reality show , and one heartbroken girlfriend about to declare motherhood, it's all on Lola to come up with the answers.  And it's going to take more than one of her mother's prosperity chants to save the day.

I found the book to be rather complacent and ....cheesy. I felt like I was reading scripted reality television and a rather bad version of it. would I reccommend it... I say if you're a fan of RHOBH and Jersey Shore, indulge yourselves.
