How I Got It: from author
From the outside looking in, Lily Lockwood--popular star of the hit TV show "St. Joes"--seems to have it all. She has recently been nominated for an Emmy and her star is on the rise. Lily shares her beachfront Malibu home with her gorgeous actor-boyfriend Jamie. Perfect? Not so fast. Within a microcosmically short period of time, the whole thing falls apart when she learns that this boyfriend, on location shooting a Western, is riding horses all day and his curvy co-star all night. Then, before Lily can catch her breath, she gets words that her beloved mother, bestselling author Daisy Lockwood, has had a near-fatal car crash and is in intensive care in New York.
Lily flies from Los Angeles to be with Daisy. Once there, she must make critical life-and-death decisions. While sorting through her mother's papers, Lily makes a shocking discovery about her mother that threatens to shake Lily's very foundation. This sets Lily on a journey as she seeks to unlock the riddle of her mother's past.
I love Lily Lockwood! Sassy, smart, and determined, she finds out what she's really made of when her world crashes down. Always able to count on her mother for advice, Lily has to make a lot of tough decisions on her own when her mother is in a terrible car wreck and her personal life is in shambles. Her filthy mouth and a heart of gold will have readers cheering her on whether she's holding her mother's hand or telling her slimeball of a boyfriend off. Author Alison Caiola has created a wonderful character with Lily Lockwood and luckily this isn't the last we will hear of her, two more books are included in the Lily Lockwood series and will be releasing this year.
