This story is not just about glitz and aging, or even that much of a romance between Tiana and Michael though those aspects enhance the story. But a trip away from the Hollywood madness is about to bring new problems-and a new man-into her life.
Add in a sexy and annoying hunk and the sparks fly in the romance department too, but not immediately. But even with the trappings that come with her elite lifestyle, she feels empty. But when her producers threaten to bring in a ten-years-younger co-host to revive her top-rated weeknight show, pushing-40 Tiana must consider the possibility. But even as she campaigns for her high-profile job, Tiana is ambivalent. Only you should be able to tell you that. It was if that character was written about me. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact.
It doesn't help that at every turn she has to deal with her adversary-the devilishly handsome, plastic surgeon to the stars, Michael Sullivan. The first third read like a public service announcement about plastic surgery; then the story really took off in a different direction and I was completely hooked. In my mind, there's nothing sweeter in the world than the heady fragrance of orange blossoms on a sultry summer night. I felt that this book had a lot of great lessons for us women--no matter what the age is. I realized that I read another story where the main character learns the hard way that life can be too short. Or maybe because it was just a good book. Her career is centered around being young and beautiful and she finds herself in the position of being too old comparatively for her job.
The spine may show signs of wear. Many times I have looked in the mirror and sighed at the definite signs of aging I have begun to see.

I would recommend this book. She finds out some information about lipo surgery, face lifts, etc and knows it's just not for her but she might have to go that route to keep her job.

But, when the aging, top rated entertainment reporter, Tiana, has her job threatened by the younger reporter, she is forced to see her life in a different light. But even with the trappings that come with her elite lifestyle, she feels empty. Tia, who anchors a popular celebrity news show is still uncertain about where she's going with her life. I like Jane Porter and have read some of her other books but in my opinion this is her best one to date.
Plastic surgery is mentioned, but Tiana balks at that. Do you think this label it carries a stigma for women? I guess this book is categorized as women's fiction or chiclit. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the first half of the book was a little slowly paced and each of Tiana's angsts and sorrows were all repeated one time too many. Maybe because I had disfiguring surgery repeatedly and could relate to the opinions of others about beauty. I loved her growth from passive to active, from lonely to happy with herself despite her supposed ageing. The heroine in this book is glamorous and works in television but she is still a woman that readers can identify with. Tina desperately misses her late husband Keith, who died several years before.

That is, until she finds out that the very handsome, very arrogant Dr. Her books never cease to touch my heart and to make me cheer for their complex, strong and intelligent female characters. I was given this book in my goody bag at a writer's conference and have since become a fan.
But she'll do whatever it takes to show her network and the people that she's more than just her face and that real news matters to viewers too. I have also read a small part of 'She's Gone Country' and am keen to read the whole thing. At thirty-eight, Tiana is still the gorgeous, poised daughter of a former Miss South Africa, but in youth-obsessed Hollywood, she is beginning to age. Have you ever been to Africa?
