Amber gets an unexpected chance of a lifetime when uber-stylist Mona Armstrong swans into her London boutique and, impressed by her window dressing, hires her to replace the assistant who just quit. Amber is soon jetting her way to Los Angeles for awards season, with a film crew also capturing footage for a reality TV show called The Stylist based around Mona’s life. But life with Mona is hardly easy and Amber finds herself juggling too many balls, picking up the pieces - and minding a pig. This is a thoroughly entertaining read that will appeal to those who like immersing themselves in the fashion and celebrity worlds. With a pacy plot, an engaging leading lady, a diva boss, and plenty of machinations and shenanigans, this is an impressive debut ripe for a sequel.
