Publisher's Summary

In The Second Assistant, readers across the country found a heroine they loved to love in Lizzie Miller, the smart and witty East Coast girl clinging for dear life to the bottom rung of the Hollywood ladder. But no more coffee runs and sorting thumbtacks by color for Lizzie; she's been promoted. As first assistant to Scott Wagner, now president of The Agency and one of Hollywood's premiere movers and shakers, she's making decisions and learning the ins and outs of the business. But unlike the other airhead assistants, she's not being wooed by the glamour and mystique of Lala Land. At least, that's what she tells herself. But with a fabulous boyfriend and visions of Harry Winston diamonds and a black AmEx dancing in her head, it is getting harder for Lizzie to keep her pumps firmly on the ground. In The First Assistant, Clare Naylor and Mimi Hare have again joined forces to take a wry and hilarious look at the wheeling, dealing, schmoozing, and snubbing that make Hollywood the cutthroat capital of the world. Listeners are hungry for more, and The First Assistant is just the romp into the red-carpet world that they crave.
Clare Naylor is the author of five previous novels, including Love: A User's Guide and Dog Handling. Mimi Hare was director of development for a Hollywood production company, where she worked on such feature films as Jerry McGuire and As Good As It Gets. Now both authors are busy writing screenplays for a range of studios and production companies, including Miramax and Disney. Both live and work in London.

Loved it!

After just finishing The Second Assistant I felt the need to find out what happened to Lizzie next. I'm so glad as I liked the first, I loved the second. It was wittier, had a better pace and the plot was more developed. It's a winner of a summer read - fun, exciting and completely insane.

This book and narrator had me laughing the whole way through. What absurdities there are in Hollywood, but very funny. I had to get used to the narrator's flat voice, but it really does suit the character. Her Southern leading man accent is dead on and she makes him come to life. There is a lot of bad language in this and some scenes you would not want to listen to without headphones or privacy.
