Editorial Reviews


'Exceptionally well-written ... From the moment I picked this book up, it stayed in my hands until I had reached the end' Books of All Kinds. 'I found myself quickly absorbed in the story, staying up reading until the early hours of the morning unable to tear myself away' The Curious Ginger Cat. 'A great opener for a new series' Swirl and Thread. 'A book full of drama, egos, tension, sexism, blackmail, relationships ... I could go on but I think you get the gist, this book has it all' Neats Wilson. 'Lythell has written an "insider's account" of the frenetic world of live television. She lifts the lid on the "monster egos and high drama" that come with working in live television ... but the real dramas are played out behind the scenes' Katy Rice, The Argus. 'Compelling and authoritative with characters so well drawn you'll be looking out for them on TV' Kerry Fisher, author of The Island Escape and After the Lie. 'Terrific five-star read' The Last Word. 'A great sense of authenticity to the plot ... it can also make the reader reel in horror, wondering how anyone can spend their days massaging the egos of these pampered people' 4*, Anne Cater, Random Things Through My Letter Box. 'Wow, what a read. I was utterly addicted to this book. Liz is a fascinating, realistic, ballsy and likable protagonist, who had me at her side all the way' 5*, Louise Beech, author of How to be Brave. 'An entertaining holiday read this summer that will keep you captivated from the start to the finish ... great fun' (10/10) Brainfluff. 'A very entertaining and gripping read' Rachel's Random Reads. 'Lythell knows her stuff. She was a TV producer for 15 years and her knowledge of the inner machinations, the politics and the jostling for positions make this a fantastic read' Brighton and Hove Independent. 'The story of Liz Lyon, a mother hen both to daughter Flo, and her team. You sympathise easily with her struggles and cheer her triumphs. The ever-simmering tension racks up towards the end. Very enjoyable - and if you are looking at a career in television, well worth a read!' Emma Curtis author of One Little Mistake. 'The characters were wonderfully colourful - some with huge egos and some who you love to hate! As the story progressed I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what secrets and lies some of the characters were keeping' Claire Douglas author of Local Girl Missing.
