    Lola Santisi is a 26-year-old member of Hollywood Royalty (Papa's vying for Best Director Oscar number two, and Mom's a fixture at The Ivy). She suffers from "actorholism" (a fatal addiction to dating hunky actors) and CDD (Career Deficit Disorder, an epidemic among children of Hollywood Royalty).

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story itself is interesting so yes, I would recommend it but I would warn about the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader unnecessarily uses inflections when reading. It sounds too bubble gum valley girl at times. If you can get past that, it's a good, interesting chick lit "read".

    Valerie Wyatt is the queen of gracious living and the arbiter of taste with a successful TV show. Since her long-ago divorce, she’s worked hard to reach the pinnacle of her profession and to create a camera-ready life in her Fifth Avenue penthouse. So why is she so depressed? All the hours with her personal trainer, the careful work of New York’s best hairdressers, cosmetic surgeons, and her own God-given bone structure and great looks can’t fudge the truth or her lies about it: Valerie is turning sixty.

    If you could sum up Happy Birthday in three words, what would they be?

    Warm, romantic, rushed


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Her characters were all distinct and easy to follow.


    If you could take any character from Happy Birthday out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The sommelier. He seemed very interesting and I wish his character would have been more developed and met some kind of resolution.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is a great listen but a couple of the characters seemed unnecessary and/or unfinished. It felt rushed several times, as if the author had to tell the story in x-amount of pages. It was such a good storyline that I was surprised when it ended. The time flew by.
