A witty, utterly addictive novel from bestselling author Wendy Holden, Beautiful People is a tale wicked in its observations yet buoyant at its heart: an irresistible confection you’ll want to devour immediately.
Darcy—a struggling English rose actress when The Call comes from L.A. An Oscar-tastic director. A movie to make her famous. The hunkiest costar in Hollywood. So why doesn’t she want to go?
Belle—a size-zero film star but she’s in big, fat trouble. Hotter than the earth’s core a year ago, she’s now Tinseltown toast after her last film bombed. Can she get back to the big time?
Emma—a down-to-earth, down-on-her-luck nanny trying to weather London’s cutthroat childcare scene and celebrity mom whirlwinds. What will it take for her to get back in control of her own life?
Jet to London, Hollywood, and Italy; toss in a passionate star chef, a kindhearted paparazzo, and a reluctant male supermodel; and find Wendy Holden at her best—a smash international hit.
Is it me or does this cover remind you of a self help book? I like the cover so don’t get me wrong.  It is just not something that really sparks my interest. 
While the cover is confusing, the rest of the book is not.  I enjoyed some parts of this book, but the rest of it fell flat for me.  There were a lot of loose ends and the characters were not interesting to me.  The author did have some great moments though in the book. The author did a great job of detailing who is who in the book.  You will quickly decide who you will like and who you will despise. My problem is that I despised more characters than I liked.  It made me lose interest in the book quickly because I didn’t care what happened to them because I didn’t care about them. 
Overall, I would say it is an okay read to have on hand when nothing else sparks your interest.  It is not something I would normally buy, and it certainly is not one I would read again. 

I did not enjoy this book.
