15 minutes of fame is more than enough

I absolutely loved Kate Langdon’s novel Famous. Samantha, the heroine, reminded me of a more sophisticated Bridget Jones. She and her two BFFs spend a lot of time swilling champagne and spouting British slang.

Sam’s one night stand with the wrong man causes a flock of paparazzi to make her life miserable until she escapes to the country in a plan so elaborate it puts D-Day to shame.  Each character she encounters along the way is funnier than the last. But there is something very genuine about them too.

This is chick lit at its best.
