A glass eye named Audrey, a friend who comes to the rescue, and a few revelations make Julie Wright’s November release one not to miss.
About the Book
Women in Hollywood are just pretty faces. But Silvia Bradshaw knows that’s a lie, and she’s ready to be treated as an equal and prove her worth as one of Hollywood’s newest film editors.
She and Ben Mason had worked together as editors before Silvia got her big break, so he’s the perfect person to ask for feedback on her first major film. But even as their friendship begins to blossom into something more, a lawsuit surfaces, jeopardizing both Ben and Silvia’s jobs—as well as their fledgling romance. Audrey Hepburn once said: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.” Silvia agrees. Or she used to. It’s one thing to risk her job and her heart, but can she really risk Ben’s, too? Does she have the right to make decisions for her own happiness when they affect so many other people?
With everything to lose, Silvia meets Ben for breakfast at his favorite diner, Tiffany’s, for one last conversation before the credits roll on true love.
In My Opinion
I enjoyed Julie Wright’s Lies Jane Austen Told Me last year, so of course I wanted to read Silvia’s book. And, oh, what a delicious one it is!
Lies, Love, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s is part Ode to Audrey Hepburn, part critique of the Hollywood boys club, and, my favorite, a friends-to-more romance.
While the first half of the book sets up what’s to come, I thoroughly enjoyed getting a look into Silvia and Ben’s friendship—their movie quote game, their comfort and ease with each other, and Ben’s crazy statistics. These two know each other well.
I appreciated the laughs in the book (a few provided by Silvia’s grandmother who I adored and a few more provided by Silvia’s glass eye) but more so, I enjoyed Silvia’s revelations of her feelings for Ben and what she found important in life.
This is a book for those who love movies, romance, humor, or a great story.
