Overview
New York Times bestselling author and beloved actress Victoria Rowell delivers another hilarious and shocking send-up of the soap opera world, featuring Calysta Jeffries, the unstoppable diva of daytime drama.

As we learned from Victoria Rowell's smash hit Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva, no one gets in the way of leading lady Calysta Jeffries. Now, after a brief stint in drug rehab, Calysta is back on the set and ready for action as she resumes her role as the star of The Rich and the Ruthless. But not everyone in the cast and crew is happy to have the diva back. As soon as she wraps her first return episode, some of her fellow colleagues and cast members are conspiring, once again, to sabotage her career. She's already survived amnesia, an alien abduction, and death three times over--but all that and a real-life alcohol abuse problem couldn't keep Calysta down. So her enemies come up with the nastiest plan ever devised. They invite Calysta's beautiful daughter Ivy to audition for The Rich and the Ruthless and offer her a role alongside her very competitive mother, turning Calysta's whole world upside down.

Ripped from the headlines of TMZ and packed with behind-the-scenes secrets, Victoria Rowell's latest soap opera drama crackles with salacious details and over-the-top, hot and heavy hijinks. You won't be able to put it down.

You don’t have to be a fan of Rowell’s former star vehicle, the CBS sudser The Young and the Restless, to relish the actress-turned-writer’s giddy sequel to Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva. Dishing dirt on the shrinking landscape of daytime drama and its venal, back-stabbing, and drug-abusing stars, Rowell cheerfully gnaws the hand that once fed her in this soap opera within a soap opera. Gorgeous, talented African-American actress Calysta Jeffries returns to fictional soap The Rich and Ruthless after a stint in rehab to discover that she’ll be sharing the spotlight with her equally talented and beautiful 18-year-old daughter, Ivy. But Calysta is also dodging the dirty laundry that a felonious producer threatens to air, cast mates who want to sabotage her career, and the fallout from a torrid affair. The subplots and entanglements of characters both on the fictional soap and among its preening cast—including a clever cameo by soap fan Isabella Rossellini—keep all the players on edge as they teeter between doom and salvation. It’s a dizzying mess that soap devotees will gladly devour. But it’s the Mississippi family and friends whom Calysta left behind—and who keep her secrets—who emerge as the most compelling cast. Their “big reveal” and a shakeup on The Rich and Ruthless add up to a cliff-hanger that begs for a sequel. Stay tuned. Agent: Irene Webb, Irene Webb Literary. (Mar. 5)
