Publisher's Summary

A fearless and spirited pilot conquers Hollywood. Now can she survive movie stardom?
In 1945 Velva Jean Hart is a bona fide war heroine. After a newsreel film of her triumphant return to America, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer promises to make her a star. They give her a new life story and a brand-new name. As "Kit Rogers", she navigates the movie sets, recording sessions, parties, staged romances, and occasional backstabbing that accompany her newfound fame. She also navigates real-life romance, finding herself caught between a charismatic young writer and a sexy and enigmatic musician from her past. But when one of her best friends dies mysteriously and the most powerful studio in the world launches a cover-up, Velva Jean goes in search of the truth - risking her own life, as well as her heart, in the process.
Set during Hollywood's Golden Age and peopled with a cast of unforgettable characters, American Blonde will mesmerize fans of The Chaperone as well as fans of the Velva Jean series.

Ugggghhhhh - I could not get past the voice!

I LOVED the first three books of this series and I was really hoping to love the 4th book, however, the person they picked to read this book had an older sounding, raspy voice. Velva Jean went from having a young, innocent, southern girl's voice, to a middle age smoker's voice. Maybe if I had read the book myself, I would not have had any issues with it. Admittedly, this story was not as good as the others, but I think it was still good - however, the voice killed it for me.
