Book review, Time In

The latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author makes for an easy and entertaining holiday read. Eager to live the dream, 23-year-old go-getter Ruth Saunders moves to Hollywood from Massachusetts (albeit with her 70-year-old grandma) in the hope of making it big in the TV business. Years later her sitcom is now in fruition and her life takes a swift turn as she works and weaves her way through LA showbusiness.
