Eeee! Exclamation Point! Exclamation Point!
Sometimes, I wonder what is happening to the world. Like, Fergie and Josh Duhamel are still together...the Osmonds are toothily lurking wherever I turn...Spencer Pratt has a sister who is going to be foisted upon an innocent television viewing public on tonight's episode of The Hills...Greenlee referred to herself as a burn victim (!!!) because Zach and Kendall set her life on fire or something (!!!) on today's episode of AMC...
All of those are tragic in and of themselves and when you add them together, it is endlessly horrible and makes me doubt the existence of a kind higher power.
And then I find out (a million years after the rest of civilization, I know) that the book Kendall Hart is writing to deal with the pain of her husband going missing (because I know that when one of my loved one's is in mortal peril, I often write chick lit) is an actual book and it's going to be available in February and it's going to be THE MOST AWESOME(-LY CHEESY) THING IN THE HISTORY OF EVER BECAUSE IT IS CALLED CHARM! (EXCLAMATION POINT!)
Avery Wilkins is in her prime. She's 30 years old, living in Manhattan, beautiful, smart, and the head of her own cosmetics company, Flair. But her enviable exterior hides deep heartache and painful secrets. Determined to launch a successful perfume, and hopeful that her relationship with handsome and supportive Marcus is getting serious, Avery is chasing her dreams--and running from her traumatic past.
Just when things seem to be on an even keel, Avery is hit with a succession of shocking setbacks, surprises, and betrayals: A drug-addicted colleague who threatens the future of Flair, one boyfriend who is incapable of fidelity, another who may have committed a terrible crime, a long-lost sister who isn't quite who she seems, and most disturbing of all, the sudden appearance of a woman claiming to be Avery's birth mother.
Avery is forced to question the loyalty of friends, lovers, and colleagues, and even her own beliefs about where she came from and who she is. Through it all, she draws on her ambition, grit, and cunning to outsmart her enemies, keep her company afloat, and protect herself from emotional meltdown. But when her archenemy resorts to kidnapping, has Avery finally met her match?
Dramatic, sexy, and fun, Charm! is a wickedly entertaining roman a clef by All My Children favorite Kendall Hart. Brimming with scandal, romance, backstabbing, and unpredictable twists, it is every bit as shocking and captivating as the character who wrote it.
OH EM GEE! Is it February yet?
I love you.
