From Nadine Haobsh, aka Jolie in NYC ("The poster child for the blogger generation...you can't help but love her."--New York Post), comes a delectable novel that only a true beauty industry insider could have written
Bella Hunter may be down but she's not out yet--and she's ready to take on the world of beauty...one bad makeover at a time.
Pity the poor twenty-eight-year-old beauty expert and columnist for ultra-chic Enchante magazine, knocked right out of her Jimmy Choos--and out of a job--when her off-the-cuff comment to a reporter is blown way out of proportion. Once the authority on style, Bella's reduced to taking a position at Womanly World, a publishing dinosaur of no interest whatsoever to any woman under fifty. Suddenly she's got to take orders from a dreary and dowdy beauty director--and is soon at war with her male publisher, who might actually be appealing if he wasn't so totally frosty.
Bella's supermodel boyfriend, a hometown wedding, and a Paris junket are fine distractions, to be sure. But how can she face her friends and ex-coworkers now that she's stuck in an office where khaki--not Cavalli--is the way of life? And if beauty's not what it's all about...then what is?
