Blog Tour Review & #Giveaway - Anne of Hollywood by Carol Wolper


SYNOPSIS:

Skirts may be shorter now, and messages sent by iPhone, but passion, intrigue, and a lust for power don’t change. National bestselling author Carol Wolper spins a mesmerizing tale of a twenty-first century Anne Boleyn in ANNE OF HOLLYWOOD.

Wily, intelligent, and seductive, with a dark beauty that stands out among the curvy California beach blondes, Anne attracts the attention of Henry Tudor, the handsome corporate mogul who reigns in Hollywood. Every starlet, socialite, and shark wants a piece of Henry, but he only wants Anne. The question is: can she keep him?

Welcome to a privileged world where hidden motives abound, everyone has something to sell, and safe havens don’t exist. With her older sister Mary, a pathetic example of a royal has-been, Anne schemes to win her beloved Henry in the only way that gives a promise of forever – marriage. Success will mean contending with backstabbing “friends” Henry’s furious ex-wife, and the machinations of her own ambitious family, and staying married to a man who has more options than most and less guilt than is good for either of them will take all her skill.

Anne will do anything to hold on to the man- and the lifestyle- she adores, even if sticking your neck out in Hollywood means risking far worse than a broken heart. With Henry’s closet confidante scheming against her, and another beautiful contender waiting in the wings, Anne is fighting for her life. Can she muster the charm and wit to pull off her very own Hollywood ending?

MY THOUGHTS: 

On Saturday and Sunday I read Anne of Hollywood.  I was immediately drawn into the story and the life of Anne.  She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it.  Carol's has a fresh writing style that really brings this book to life.  The next time you are in the mood to pick up a good book, Anne of Hollywood is the perfect read.

I learned that The second most interesting thing I know about Steve Jobs is that - by his own account - the crucial course he took at college was not in coding but in calligraphy.

Is Nicci French a pseudonym for Carol? Either way, it looks like a great book with a great premise. Thanks!
