A Night in with Audrey Hepburn

Cover image and summary from Goodreads:

Actress Libby Lomax has retreated into the world of classic movies, where the immortal lives of her favourite screen goddesses seem to offer so much more in the romance department than her own life.

After a terrible day on set where she embarrasses herself in front of the entire cast and worst of all, it’s sexy bad-boy star, Dillon O’Hara, she plonks herself down on her battered couch to watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the trillionth time.

Suddenly, Libby is astonished to find screen icon Audrey Hepburn, complete with little black dress, trademark sunglasses and vintage cigarette holder, sitting beside her and proffering advice.

Has Libby got what it takes to turn her life from a Turkey to a Blockbuster? Perhaps with a little bit of Audrey Hepburn magic, she might just pull it off…

A night in with Audrey Hepburn is the first in a series of three books following the life and loves of Libby Lomax as she blossoms from Z-lister to A-lister and all of the stages in between with a little bit of help from some very special friends.

This was such a fun, delightful read! This was a pick for my Sisterhood of the Travelling Book Club, and a couple months back, we all watched Roman Holiday online together, in preparation for reading this book. I love that movie, and it definitely got me excited about reading A Night in with Audrey Hepburn.

This book was fun, funny, and just the right book for me coming back from a great vacation and trying to switch gears to get ready to go back to work. I loved and sympathised with Libby, and swooned over her romance with mega star Dillon O’Hara. Audrey Hepburn, as a character in this book, was so chic and wonderful. And I was rooting so much for Libby to grow more confident in herself, and the way this book ended had me wanting to read more!

I was so happy to learn that this is part of a trilogy. I’ve already purchased the second book, A Night in with Marilyn Monroe (the third, A Night in with Grace Kelly, comes out next year). I can’t wait to find out what happens next in Libby’s story! So recommended!
