Red Carpet Burns - Georgia Cassimatis (2013)

Journalist Georgia Cassimatis leaves her fabulous career as a magazine editor in Australia for her short-term beau, Simon, and his beach bungalow in Los Angeles. Instead of the fairytale ending she pictured, Georgia has a hard time getting used to American living, and an even harder time getting a job. And she also has to get used to living with Simon - now her husband after a quick courthouse elopement - who has developed a serious mean streak. Georgia meets a cast of amazing characters, friends, foes, and boyfriends. At times I thought I was reading a novel, forgetting this was Georgia's own story. Set against a backdrop of celebrities, drugs, and a few crazy psychics, Georgia's memoir makes for a quick interesting read. I was a tad disappointed with the ending, but that's my own romantic-ending hang-up. (AV)
