Vivien Leigh Reid Series

Blood is thicker than water…and more powerful than all the hot guys in Hollywood

The last thing Vivien Leigh Reid wants is to be like her film diva mother. Annika Anderson left her family behind to find fame in Hollywood, and created a rift that could never heal. Or so it seems, until Leigh’s dad ships her off to Ireland to reconnect with Annika on a film set.

No one is more surprised than Leigh to discover that Annika’s burning passion for acting runs through her own veins. But along with natural talent comes the debilitating Diva Gene, which activates when Leigh gets her first acting break. Growing success may throw handsome men into their paths, but it’s one heartache after another as the drama spills off set.

In life, there’s no Take Two… unless you’re Leigh and Annika. As mother and daughter navigate minefields in Hollywood and romance, will their best performance in a supporting role be helping each another?

If you love heartwarming mother and daughter stories and coming-of-age rom-coms, you’ll want to grab the entire Vivien Leigh Reid series today!


Reader Reviews

“Leigh is a likeable, funny, and realistic heroine… [Her] life as a burgeoning young star has a wide appeal thanks to her down-to-earth outlook and her witty personality. Readers would be wise to go back and read the first two books in the series, but it's not necessary to understand or enjoy this newest installment.”

“Leigh's first-person narrative (including fantasy sequences written in script format) is engaging. Fans of Meg Cabot's ‘The Princess Diaries' series will enjoy the inside look at life among the famous and identify with Leigh's romantic travails. Though it's not necessary for readers to be familiar with the previous volumes, they may be in demand once this one hits the shelves.”

“Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout have done a wonderful job developing Leigh's character over the course of this series. While her circumstances may be extraordinary, Leigh is a very believable and likable character, laughing at and learning from her mistakes. With a solid head on her shoulders and a will to succeed, Leigh is the exactly the kind of teen that can succeed in the fast-paced world of Hollywood.”

“This is teen chick lit at its finest! You don't need to read the previous books to enjoy this fun, quick and entertaining novel. The characters are well balanced and charming, and there's the right amount of romance, tension and wit.”
   —Romantic Times

“Collins and Rideout have a talent for clever dialogue, amusing plot and, above all, a delightfully feisty, funny heroine. Some of the best sections are from Leigh's imagination, describing what she'd like to be happening. Written in the form of movie scripts, these are invariably hilarious.”
