Publisher's Summary

Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy.

Jake Koranda is both New York's most brilliant playwright and Hollywood's hottest actor. Difficult, talented, and tormented, he has no patience for international glamour girls, not even ones with beautiful bodies and smart-aleck mouths. But there's more to the Glitter Baby than shine, and Fleur's tougher than Jake expects. Even with the odds stacked against her, she's fiercely determined to discover the woman she's destined to be. An ugly duckling who can't believe she's turned into a swan . . . A tough-guy movie star with a haunted past . . . In a land of broken dreams, can two unlikely lovers trust their hearts?

    "Dissapointing and Depressing"

    I have really enjoyed SEP books, but this one let me down. Full of weak female characters that need to get a clue. Depressing relationships filled with constant loss, this much tragedy in one book is not believeable. I tried, but couldn't finish it.......

    Story
    "Where's the humor?"

    I missed the humor I have come to expect from Ms. Phillips's books. The story line is good but it is a bit of a downer. The title sounds fun but the book, unfortunately, is not. I went back and read some of the other reviews and I agree with most of them. If you have listened to many of her books and are a fan of her work, you will probably be disappointed in this book. Not that there is anything wrong with it. It is actually a good story, very well written. It's just that when I pick up one of her books - I'm looking for FUN - not melancholy.

    The narrator had big shoes to fill. While she did a good job with this book, no one is Anna Fields! That lady will be missed by all of us for many years!

    Story
    "Glitz & Glamour"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Glitter Baby to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Glitter Baby?

    When she brought herself back to build her company


    What does Julia Gibson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Just like Anna Fields, Julia brings the book to life! Fabulous job!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both

    "One of the best SEPs"

    This is one of the best SEP books I have read. This is not all flowery like some of the others, but I loved it. I cried and laughed. I thought the ending was a little weird but overall great book.

    Story
    "Not her best work"

    If you like Jackie Collins, you will like this (I dont).
    I you like Susan Phillips when she is funny and light, this book will be a sad dissapointment.
    Unless you skip at least the first seven chapters you will find yourself in a quagmire of misery listening to this story. I would save your money for other Phillips books.

    "Great Book...but what is up with the music???"

    I love SEP and I love how her books are all tied together. However, the music in the audio book is horrible!! It came out of the middle of nowhere!!!!! Very cheesy and way out of context...if there is going to be music, at least put it in the correct places!!

    "This book was darker, but awesome."

    This book is not quite like the other SEP books I have heard, but it was a lot more interesting and dark. I enjoyed it, though it dragged at points. I enjoyed the main character quite a bit and was rooting for her to find her way.

    "Not the usual..."

    I started listening to SEP a little over a year ago and was so looking forward to more sassy, witty chracters which this selection did not offer. I appreciate the need to depart for the same types of characters but the ones in this book were totally unlikeable. This book dragged on forever. I won't give up on SEP as I typically enjoy her writing.

    "Good Book - not crazy about narration"

    I have recently discovered SEP and have listened to or read most of the books. I enjoyed the book - unfortunately, Anna Fields did not get to narrate this book before she died. I listened to part of it, and then finished the book in written form.

    "All that Glitters is not Gold"

    The author of this book is one of my favorites, and this book is very well written. However it can make you sick to your stomache. If your expecting a love story, it isn't. It's about two parents holding secrects so sickening, and using their daughter as a yo-yo between them, making money off of her and putting her in positions that no parent who actually loved their child would do. It's placed in the past of the old glamourous hollywood, and this girl is used and abused in the most disgusting situations. My stomach became sick. again it's well written and probably has more truth in it than what we would want to believe. But it's tough on the nerves.
