Waiting on Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to show which upcoming releases we are looking forward to. This week my selection is:
Gallery Girl by Wendy Holden
Release date: 13 October, 2010
Zeb's the darling of Brit Art, the rock'n roll bad boy artist whose works go for bazillions. But can he keep his end up - in every sense - now that his powerful female patron is losing interest? Beth loves are and the traditional gallery she works in and loves her boyfriend doctor, David. But the hospital hours he keeps are putting a strain on the relationship. Marie's pop-star husband was big in the Nineties, now he's relaunching his boy band with a vengeance. But where does this leave Marie and her dreams of being a painter? Ben's a brilliant portrait artist but no one wants his stuff. Why have a picture that actually looks like you when you could have a gold-sprayed prosthetic limb? Disillusioned Ben's reduced to living in the country and holding adult education life classes. But what happened to his life? Then Beth finds herself catapulted into the crazed world of contemporary art. Marie walks into Ben's life class. And the picture changes completely.
I have liked all of the novels I've read by Wendy Holden. They have always been enjoyable, easy reads. The description on this one sounds like this will be another great one. However, it has already been released in the UK and the few reviews on Amazon aren't that favourable. So now it really has my interest, reviews always up the need to read factor for me, whether they are positive or negative.
