Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A spoiled brat finds her backbone when fate kicks her to the curb in tabloid staple Richie's decent follow-up to The Truth About Diamonds. Charlotte Williams goes from pampered princess to outcast after her adored father pleads guilty to a massive Wall Street fraud. To escape the wrath of cheated investors, an Internet smear campaign, and a creepy stalker, Charlotte heads to the New Orleans home of Millie, her beloved former nanny and the only mom she's known. What Charlotte finds, however, is far more than a safe harbor: a best friend in fashion maven Kat (their friendship may give readers Simple Life flashbacks); a handsome love interest in Millie's musician son, Jackson; and a chance to unleash the sensational singing voice inherited from a mom she only knows from a heartbreaking home movie. Richie, no stranger to celebrity and tabloid gossip, proves she's been there/done that in this celeb-savvy and disarmingly charming defense of the power of love and good genes.

From Booklist

The protagonist of celebrity author Richie’s follow-up to The Truth about Diamonds (2006) is New York socialite Charlotte Williams, whose life is ruined when her father is sent to federal prison for embezzlement. She escapes the media and public’s prying eyes in New Orleans, where Miss Millie, the woman who raised her after her mother’s death, takes her in. Charlotte then meets Kat, the daughter of an influential New Orleans family, takes a job in her father’s restaurant, and learns to live under the radar. She even finds romance with Miss Millie’s son Jackson, and fulfillment singing in his jazz band. But her sweet new life is disrupted by a stalker who has set up a disturbing Web site about her. Things soon take a dangerous turn when Charlotte lets her stalker get too close. What skills Richie lacks in her attempt at suspense is balanced by her fluency in romance and fashion. --Aleksandra Walker

I know what you're thinking. You scan the cover and make a face when the name "Nicole Richie" catches your eye. "The former celebutante and Paris Hilton BFF? What's SHE written that's worth reading?" Priceless, of course.

This fluffy and fun slice of Chick lit tells the riches to rags story of Charlotte Williams, a spoiled socialite who falls from grace after her wealthy father pleads guilty to Wall Street fraud charges. The Park Avenue girl used to be handed everything on a silver platter loses it all and must learn to grow up and make her own way in the world after escaping to the New Orleans home of her former nanny.

Yeah, it's cliched, but that's part of it's charm. There's comedy, drama, and some romance thrown in for good measure. Charlotte's transformation from a bratty, entitled diva to a more mature young woman finding her voice is enjoyable and well written. The other characters are engaging as well. Kudos to Nicole for a fun, tongue in cheek summer read. Don't skip it!

Format: Hardcover
Charlotte is your typical socialite we all read about in the papers who have spoiled lives and live to shop and party. Charlotte's mother died when she was seven and only has her father, who gives her the world but is never around. Charlotte is back in New York after her father sent her to Paris for a year because she burned down a building at Yale. There was nothing her father couldn't make go away by throwing money at the situation.

Just as Charlotte is getting back to life in New York she discovers that her father has been arrested for embezzlement and fraud. Charlotte quickly becomes a target for all the people her father allegedly stole from and finds that someone wants to kill her in order to make her father pay. Everything moves quickly as the FBI freezes her accounts and begins to seize everything they own. With no family other than her father and the city becoming hostile she decides to go to New Orleans to find her former nanny Millie. Millie lives in New Orleans with her grown son Jackson who despises Charlotte since Millie left him as a young boy to be Charlotte's nanny.

New Orleans allows Charlotte a fresh start but things do not come easy. When she goes to sell a few of her clothes she meets Kat an eccentric fashionista who quickly becomes her friend. Kat even helps Charlotte find a job in her dad's restaurant. Only Charlotte realizes that shopping and partying have not made her a very skillful worker and ends up washing dishes.

When Kat finds out that Charlotte can sing Kat takes her to a jazz club and announces that Charlotte will be singing. An amusing twist of fate puts Charlotte on stage with Millie's son Jackson. Charlotte surprises everyone with her talents and Jackson is forced to see her in a new light.

Who knew Nicole Richie could write? From the first page of this book I was hooked. The character development is amazing and you really feel like you are attached to these people. Despite my skepticism, I found myself truly enjjoying this book and looking forward to the next time that I got to sit down and read it.

It is a must read for anyone who anyone who loves Chick Lit or anyone just looking to enjoy a good piece of fiction.

Format: Paperback
This novel follows the tale of Charlotte Williams, a spoiled talented singer who comes back to her posh apartment in New York after being away in Paris. But suddenly her riches go to rags when her wealthy father is arrested on fraud charges. When the money dries up so do her superficial friends and she flees to start a new life with her old nanny Miss Millie in New Orleans. She begins her singing again and tries to hide her past from her new friend Kat Karaby. Things start to look like they are picking up when she receives an offer from a record label, but everything is far from what it seems when she begins to get stalked by someone who wants Charlotte to pay for her father's mistakes.

The short chapters make this a fast read, and the constant twist and turns make the novel intriguing, but all in all the writing is bit immature. If your into designer clothes then you will LOVE this book as the author drops names of designer duds on almost every page. I also think that Charlotte didn't struggle enough and seemed to start her new life in New Orleans without a hitch. It's a definitely a book that someone under the age of 25 would like, but as a 32-year-old wife and mother I found it a bit hard to relate to some of the characters.

It's a pretty good read...Not the best literary work ever written, but if you're in the mood to sit down and lose yourself in an easy read this book will do the trick.

Format: Paperback
I'm completely surprised the reviews that this book got. It was horrible. I do like Nicole Richie so to me it's not the celebrity reason I disliked it. I found Charlotte extremely hard to like and feel sorry for her. Did she really think she struggled? She traded in some of her fashion clothes for more designer duds?! What?! She should be buying her clothes at Goodwill so she has money to eat. Or doesn't she eat? Since for much of the book we had to hear how skinny, goergous and sexy she was.

And come on. Do you really think that that many people would give her such a hard time about what her father did? Really? The comments on the webpage about her sucking were just way over the top. It was utterly ridiculus. Most of it it sexual reference. No wonder this girl has such a huge ego. Do you really think that police in New Orleans would be waiting on the sidelines for someone to make their move on her when she was singing at the club. Death threats or not. There just wasn't enough there for them to spend the time waiting.

Nothing against Richie. But I really don't think she could relate at all to what she expected her character to feel because she no doubt hasn't experienced that herself.
