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.
Lies, Love, and Breakfast at Tiffany's is a very fun, well written triumph by talented author Julie Wright. What a different and creative choice to have a main character with a glass eye and to have her name that eye, was just as creative and fun. (I got a kick out of the back story on that!) Silva is a strong, stand-up-for-herself character. I did question a couple of her choices during the course of reading, but I was thrilled with her ah-ha moments. Ben was also a great character. I loved it when he was around. Grandma was another added joy, as was Emma. The author did a fantastic job with her characters. Each were important and had a place. Even annoying Dean. I thoroughly enjoyed the "behind the scenes" glimpse of Hollywood.
5 out of 5 stars. Julie Wright's books are always full a humor, romance, and strong characters. I loved this book!
