Description on Goodreads:

Zoe isn’t exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn’t recognize world-famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment…and into his life. It’s also why she doesn’t know that Rocher is supposed to be dead. Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as “lost manuscripts,” in cahoots with his editor/ex-wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she’s there anyway. . . . Zoe doesn’t know Balzac from Batman, but she’s going to have to wise up fast… because she’s sitting on the literary scandal of the century!


This book took me by surprise.

From down, dower and abused, to new love, excitement  and PLOT TWISTS FROM OUTTA NO WHERE!

Zoe is an amazing character. Even though her boyfriend at the start is a horrible person, she is herself, no matter what. Even when a random chance encounter happens.

With a wide variety of complex and lovely characters, I can see myself reading this over and over again. 🙂

My Rating:


Would I/Who would I recommend it (too):

Anyone who loves realisitic, although a bit far fetched fiction, plot twists, and a good read.
