"India's Summer" by Therese Book Review...


"INDIA’S SUMMER by Thérèse is the story of India Butler, single and about to turn forty, who travels from London to LA to reinvent herself. In a world illuminated by the flashbulbs of the paparazzi, she discovers the true meaning of “having it all’ while spending the summer with her sister Annabelle, a famous Hollywood actress, and her brother -in -law, a legendary rock musician.
They welcome India into their opulent, fast-paced lifestyle, whisking her from fabulous fundraisers to parties each more opulent than the last. This does nothing for India’s confidence and she maintains a wry detachment until she begins dating Adam, a gorgeous A- list actor. In an attempt to appear more successful she lies to him about her career.
Disaster strikes and India is drawn behind the veneer of Hollywood glitz and glamor and into Hollywood’s private lives. As her illusions about the perfection of their LA lifestyle fade away, India has an epiphany about her own real talents. .
India is in her element until her new life in LA unravels."

What we thought:  "India's Summer" is a wonderfully written story.  India Butler is a lovable and memorable character and I found myself rooting for her throughout all of her trials and tribulations.  This story could only happen in LA and Therese really makes the reader feel like they are right there along for the ride with her vivid description of the people, places and most notably the fashion.  She is well-versed in the "lingo" and this makes the story even more fun to read.  This book is a fantastic end of summer read:)  ABCD Diaries gives "India's Summer" an A+!
