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?

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "It was OK"

    I'm a huge SEP fan...listen to her books over and over..especially the Chicago Stars series(LOVE Natural Born Charmer). Glitter Baby was well written, but the characters were just difficult to like. Wasn't the sassy cute style of Ain't She Sweet but it is worth a listen.

    "So-so"

    I hated the prequel chapters, but once it got to present day I enjoyed the book.

    "great book!!!"

    Book was super. Narration was super. I wanted it to go on and on. I will look for books read by Julia Gibson, and am already a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

    "I'm trying, I'm really trying."

    The most generous thing I can say is to wonder if this is an early, unpublished, work that they recycled to make a couple of bucks. This is so much weaker than other SEP books. I keep waiting for the story to get started...but nothing.
    Furthermore, the sound quality is terrible, it is muffled. I can't blame the reader, she can only read what is on the page. I doubt I'll finish this one. Life is too short.
