Trouble in Tinseltown is part 1 of Aimee Duffy’s Summer Flings novella series. After graduating from Oxford, three best girlfriends Ciara, Elle and Gem, have decided to take a two month around the world vacation before settling down and facing the realities of the real working world. The first stop on their trip is sunny Los Angeles. They are there to lounge around poolside, go shopping on Rodeo Drive and hopefully brush arms with a few movie stars. When Elle’s cousin Zack shows up at their grandpa’s Hollywood home, Ciara is in for a pleasant surprise. Perhaps Zack will be the perfect guy to have a fun, time-sensitive, summer fling with.
Ciara has some relationship issues though and thinks she’s not a stayer, like the mother that left her and her father when she was young. Her biggest fear is turning into her mother, but it doesn’t stop her from pushing away great guys because she fears that she’ll get bored and end up hurting them. Another one of her problems is that she doesn’t come from a wealthy family and thanks to their respective families, her two best friends have more money than they know what to do with. It’s difficult for Ciara to have best friends that never have to pay their bills because their parents fund their limitless credit cards. She doesn’t ever want to take advantage or take anyone’s charity and her friends understand and respect her wishes.
I have one main complaint about this series. This was the first novella in the series and had chapters 1 to 3. The next novella in the series has chapters 4 to 7. If the author planned on having the ‘novellas’ published as a few chapters at a time, it would’ve made more sense to publish it as one novel, not as a series of ‘novellas’. The story is a fun, light read with interesting characters that leave you wanting more and I enjoyed reading it, but I don’t like that it’s not just one novel, or a collection of novellas where each one starts with a chapter 1. I would recommend the series, but I’m disappointed that it wasn’t just sold as one book.
Armed with a degree from Oxford that she doesn't have a clue what to do with, Ciara Bree convinces her two best friends, Elle and Gem to spend their first summer of freedom backpacking across the globe. Now it's time to shop, sunbathe, think about boys for a change, and party hard...
First stop: LA!
The girls hit Tinseltown for a few days of shopping, star spotting, and even a movie premiere!
But their plan to sneak into an exclusive celeb party in West Hollywood backfires. Elle's gorgeous older cousin, Zack, is called to the rescue and despite knowing she should stay away, Ciara just can't seem to resist him.
The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!
Aimee Duffy gives readers the literary equivalent to a girls night out with this fun read! I enjoyed the glimpse into the Hollywood lifestyle. This was a fun adventure that was a perfect take me away from the everyday sort of read. I mean, truly what is more amusing than witnessing three friends embrace a summer of exciting escapades, especially when it includes a gorgeous and chivalrous man? For me this was a light and carefree read that transported me to a vacation of my own full of shopping, star gazing and show time stimulation. As this is only the beginning of their worldwide journey, I cannot wait to see what happens next. If you are looking for a light, amusing read to pass the time and forget your stresses this is a wonderful choice.
Ciara is the more serious of the three friends. Ellen and Gem are nerdy chic and she's only a nerd, a pretty one though. She's proud and down to earth. Her friends can buy anything they like and nothing has consequences. Ciara loves them, but she also wants to be herself and I liked that about her. Trouble in Tinseltown is fun. The red carpet event made me laugh really hard. This short novella is the perfect beach read. It's a feel good story that managed to cheer me up. It's the first one of a series of seven and I can't wait to read the next one.
