Meet Alexandra, a small-town Texas girl turned fashion correspondent for the respected British Weekly. She wears all the right designers and knows all the right people, but can her reputation survive a collision with a six-foot-plus model at the Chanel Show? The fall has been splashed across every newspaper and television set in the world, it seems, and Alex has sworn to adopt status incognito. But there’s one small problem. How do you get the scoop when you’re hidden under the covers in your hotel room?

Just when all hope seems lost, Alex hears the word that an avant-garde fashion show is happening that night at a shady Parisian nightclub. She can keep her cover and get her story. When she finds both a love interest and perhaps the hottest new underground designer in town at the show, Alex can only wonder if it’s all too good to be true.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Carrington MacDuffie gives characters solid accents and shifts from one to the other seamlessly. Listeners who love fashion, or who are amused by silliness, will enjoy traveling to France and following the exploits of Nick and Alex.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/19/2013

    " Cute, fun little read. It's a quick one so would be good for a summertime, beach read. Would recommend to anyone with even a passing interest in fashion. Be warned though: there's a lot of brand name mentions so if that annoys you, this probably isn't the book for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 11/25/2013

    " Lots of Paris and couture references. Otherwise a light, easy read not unlike the written equivalent of a romantic comedy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverly | 8/13/2013

    " I listened to this. Just randomly picked it out at the library. It was fun and entertaining. Probably would be enjoyed more by younger women. Was glad I listened to it though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/31/2013

    " I do not remember too much about this book as I read it quite ahile ago. I feel it was probably a feel good, brain candy type of book. I rated it a two because it was not that memorable to me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 11/20/2012

    " TOTAL FLUFF! read over a vacation which worked out otherwise I would have been upset with wasting the time... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aidywi | 5/9/2012

    " I thought this was a very cute book. It didn't tax me...it was a nice mellow read, and I liked that. The whole reality TV element kinda bugged me, but there were enough other things happening that I was pretty entertained. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 11/21/2010

    " Pretty much what I was expecting, only even sillier. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Alderman | 1/1/2010

    " Good supporting characters, great setting and fun plot twists, but the main character was so annoying! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 12/2/2009

    " A fun, brain-candy beach read. The Paris couture backdrop is perfect for anyone with an interest in fashion -- be it mild or full-blown fashionistas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Burke | 12/15/2008
