I've recently read two books. The first one I finished was called By Invitation Only, by Jodi Della Femina. I fell in love with this book immediately. Toni caught my attention right from the start.
"Toni Fratelli has a busy summer ahead. After several setbacks in Manhattan force her to move home to East Hampton, her To Do list is full. She has to help her father run his popular Italian restaurant, start up her own catering company-and be the Maid of Honor at her best friend's wedding on the beach. Unfortunately for Toni, the groom's mother is a competitive socialite who'll stop at nothing to make sure her son doesn't marry a local girl. The biggest caterer in the Hamptons is trying to run her new business out of town. And worse than anything, she seems to be losing her best friend to a circle of snooty bridesmaids.
At least Toni finds love. When she meets a sexy surfer named Chris, it quickly turns into the most romantic summer fling of her life. But there's more to Chris than his vintage Mustang and used guitar . and Toni's going to like the truth. Before the end of the summer she'll be forced to face her hopes - and fears - as trying to forgive becomes her biggest challenge of all."

The seccond book I read was called Beautiful People, by Wendy Holden. I didn't fall in love with this book quite as quickly, but the more I read it, the more I wanted to read. I was highly disappointed when the book ended.
"Elegant, educated and beautiful, Darcy comes from a line of British acting royalty. She's doing badly paid Shakespeare when The Call comes. A hot-shotHollywood director. A blockbuster movie. Fame and wealth beyond her wildest dreams. It seems an impossible piece of luck. Is it? Belle is blond, size zero and was hotter than the earth's core a year ago. But now her film career's in freefall. Yet Belle's prepared to do anything -- anything -- to get back into the Tinseltown big time. And woe betide anyone in her way. Nanny Emma has landed the job from heaven -- looking after a superstar's baby. Cue glamour, luxury and the inside track on fame. And a hell of a lot else besides. Celebrity. Some have it. Some want it. Some work for it."
