"The Camera Never Lies"
By Tess Daly

The Camera Never Lies is the story of a former model-turned-breakfast TV presenter who quickly finds that the drama behind the scenes far eclipses anything that goes on in front of the camera.

It is a glamorous and hilarious read about an ordinary girl in an extraordinary world who is looking for love and fame.

After landing the job of a lifetime as a fashion reporter on the nation's favourite breakfast television programme, “Rise and Shine,” Britt Baxter is invited to all the right parties, and appears in all the right magazines. Soon the press and the public can't get enough of her. Britt is 'the next big thing'.

But then a story breaks. Britt has been betrayed. And she no longer knows who she can trust.

"What If You Made It Up?"
By Kathleen S. Kolze

To the outside world, Eva Karlsen is the epitome of success. But when hiding her misery from a probing life coach proved futile, she ditched her lucrative career and rebooted, making up a new life in the shadowy hillsides of Bear, Wyoming. Opening herself up to relationships and community was not what Eva had in mind, but a gaggle of dramatic small-town residents -- along with the rugged and handsome men of Bear - pull her into an unexpected life of intrigue, including international capers and long-lost family legacies.Now a life coach herself, Eva is determined to reinvent her way to loving and living the life of her dreams. She finds herself flourishing in a life she never would have expected for herself a few years earlier. All that was needed was to just make it up!
