Former actress Meg Barnes is more than down and out. She's living in her car. Her life's gone from rich and famous to a reality TV show thanks to her con man of a husband. Handsome FBI agent Jack Mitchell thinks he knows a suspect when he sees one, except Meg looks like anything but. He's having a hard time linking this beauty to her husband's epic real estate scams. Determined to prove her innocence, and find her missing soon-to-be ex, Meg goes on one crazy (and dangerous) stunt after another, which just may land her in Hollywood's cemetery instead of on the A list.
The author's résumé is most impressive, being a former actress herself and launching her own publishing company for the entertainment industry. Though I found this book most amusing, quirky, and fun, I have to admit I was a bit let down. Just a bit! This was a women's fiction/chick lit with mild romantic elements. Very mild. So mild in fact I felt like they were added in as an afterthought. The chemistry between Meg and Jack had no build-up or follow through. Now, in saying that, I laughed out loud often while reading, and couldn't wait to find out how this whole crazy scheme unraveled. I was not surprised nor disappointed in the villains. Fast-paced, light-hearted, and very well-researched, this is a recommended read only for chick lit fans.
