Shelf Life ~ The Publicist Book 2 by Christina George


The Publicist  Book 2
Shelf Life

An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk. This is Kate’s world, but for how long?
When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, she thinks it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold on to but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. When her career and love affair hit their expiration dates, Kate sets off on a new adventure....
Starting over in California is easy, but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn’t. Nicholas Lavigne is eager to help her forget, but two things still own her heart: the dream of discovering the next great American novel and MacDermott Ellis. As Kate tries to rebuild her life, she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest best sellers publishing has seen in ages, and she's welcomed back with open arms. At the height of her success, the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she'd been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart. Behind the book there’s always more to the story.


Review:
I loved the Publicist and I loved  Shelf Life. Kate is real - she had hopes, dreams, fears, and passion. Shelf Life took me more into Kate's life - the struggles of working in the publishing industry - the fears of being in love and the hardships associated with it all.  Christine does an excellent job of expressing the characters wants and needs. I found Lisa to be a excellent narrator.  I love being read to and Lisa did an excellent job.
If you  are looking for a love story that involves passion, betrayal and will power to succeed ~ you will love Shelf Life! I recommend listening to The Publicist first - then listen to The Shelf Life. 

Meet the Author:
Christina George
Christina George has worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn't. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, cause it’s more fun to guess, right? George continues to work in publicity and helps authors because at the end of the day she does love books, she loves publishing, and she loves authors. She hopes you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as she enjoyed creating it.

  5. The story kind of reminds me of "The Hills" in some ways. Lauren Conrad moves from Laguna Beach to start over and becomes a household name. This is something i would definitely purchase
