Publisher Description

This is the book fans of Candace Bushnell have been waiting for. From the author of Sex and the City, Lipstick Jungle, and The Carrie Diaries comes an addictive story about fame, love, and foolishness that will keep readers enthralled to the very last enticing scene.

Pandy "PJ" Wallis is a renowned writer whose novels about a young woman making her way in Manhattan have spawned a series of blockbuster films. After the success of the Monica books and movies, Pandy wants to attempt something different: a historical novel based on her ancestor Lady Wallis. But Pandy's publishers and audience only want her to keep cranking out more Monica-as does her greedy husband, Jonny, who's gone deeply in debt to finance his new restaurant in Las Vegas.

When her marriage crumbles and the boathouse of her family home in Connecticut goes up in flames, Pandy suddenly realizes she has an opportunity to reinvent herself. But to do so, she will have to reconcile with her ex-best friend and former partner in crime, SondraBeth Schnowzer, who plays Monica on the big screen-and who may have her own reasons to derail Pandy's startling change of plan.

In Killing Monica, Candace Bushnell spoofs and skewers her way through pop culture, celebrity worship, fame, and the meaning of identity. With her trademark humor and style, this is Bushnell's sharpest, funniest book to date

I wanted to love this book,, but I got annoyed with the Monica is alive-dead. It really made no sence. I love this author but this is not the best book she's written.

Save Your Money - Bad Screenplay Dressed Up As Book

No secret that major motion picture studios want to see if a book is a success before spending $$$$$$$ to make it into movie. Unlike her previous novels, this is a screenplay dressed up as a book. It's basically a written audition for her to try to get a movie deal. In PR promo interviews, she told reporters that she has already written movie theme song, and performed and self produced a music video of her song.

This book was awful. I have read all of Bushnell's books and this was a huge disappointment. If you're looking for a good beach read, look elsewhere.
