Summer is winding down, but there’s still plenty of sunshine and beach time to be had. And, of course, plenty of beach reading. And what better way to relax on the sand than taking a vicarious trip to dance among the young and pretty (but also witty) at Hollywood’s most exclusive nightclubs and lavish parties? 

Hollywood in Heels is the true story of memoirist (and model/actress) Charity Gaye Finnestad, who spends her time between outrageous auditions and movie-extra shoots, while trying to build a career as a writer and find true love amongst the superficial and the strange in Los Angeles.

In Heels, Finnestad weaves laugh-out-loud funny vignettes of her (ahem) stimulating sex life, dreaded acting jobs, and dwindling bank account with astute observations of life as a Hollywood starlet and, of course, survival advice (Try the “dating diet:” ramen on your dime, champagne on his). With a steady array of crazy characters, the book keeps you laughing and shaking your head. Truly, Finnestad makes you believe it’s not Hollywood; it’s Hollyweird.

With its blog-style format, Hollywood in Heels is a book you can pick up and put down without getting lost. Yet, you still root for Charity’s story to come to a successful resolution… will she find her “magic man?” Will her writing dreams finally come true?

Pour a glass of wine, kick up your feet and enjoy some serious giggle time with Hollywood in Heels.
