Would you ever get plastic surgery? Or have you!?
I actually have! Not for the reason you’d think – I ended up slicing my eyelid open when I was 14 during a freak accident in a grocery store. True story – I swear. So I needed my eyelid fixed by a surgeon. I’d like to say I wouldn’t voluntarily – but I love having the option if I decide I need a little nip or tuck one day!
How about this cover? All the feels and uncomfortable vibes, but WOWSA is this a story that will have you turning pages!
“A Raymond Chandleresque vivisection of Tinseltown’s beautymakers.”
―Noah Wyle, Theatre, TV, & Film Actor
Dr. Harry Previn, renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, is secretly called to fix the disfigured face of teen pop star Fay Wray following an assault. Surrounded by image makers who value beauty over all else, he soon fears Fay is in mortal danger. Will he risk everything to save her beauty, her life, or himself?
This had all the makings of a E! True Hollywood story! When fame, reputation and vanity clashes with morals and integrity, you know it’s going to be a page turner. These highly vain, but vulnerable characters were so compelling on this explosive journey of a hidden celebrity scandal, and I loved seeing how far they would go to cover things up for their own beauty and benefit.
A wild ride, a delicious amount of REAL celebrity name-dropping, and a fun and satisfying look into the superficiality of the rich and famous.
“Edgy. Pretty shocking. You wonder what the heck is going to happen!”
