Apocalipstick: Review

by Sue Margolis

From the author who brought you Spin Cycle and Neurotica comes a hilarious new novel about falling in love, hating your job, and getting what you want out of life—-without ever mussing your lipstick!

When it comes to men, beauty columnist Rebecca Fine always seems to be on the scruffy end of the mascara wand. But all that changes the morning she meets Max Stoddart, her new colleague at the Daily Vanguard. With his upscale suit, Hugh Grant hair, and obscenely sexy good looks, he’s a single woman’s dream come true. Finally, her grandmother can stop surfing the Net for eligible Jewish males. But is Max the catch of the decade—-or just a major babe magnet?

Meanwhile, Rebecca’s old high school nemesis has resurfaced, a former blond bombshell called Lipstick who is now engaged to Rebecca’s widowed dad. And it’s good-bye to articles on toe cleavage when a hot tip sweeps Rebecca to the center of the Paris cosmetics world, where a miracle anti-wrinkle cream is about to be launched. That is, until she blows the whistle on a scandal that could set the beauty business—-and the future of world peace—-reeling. Will Rebecca win the recognition—-not to mention the Pulitzer—-she yearns for...and get the man of her dreams? Stay tuned.

This book is laugh out loud funny but a tad predictable, do those things even themselves out when in the same sentence?

I am giving this book 3 stars and it falls into these reading challenges...
** I am going to do my best to get through my list of books that I have read here... I swear you fall behind and you can never catch back up.

Until next time...
Happy Reading!
