Christina George in her new book, “shelf life book coverShelf Life” Book Two in The Publicist series published by Christina George continues the story of Kate Mitchell.

From the back cover:  Publishing: An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk.

This is Kate’s world, but for how long? When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, she thinks it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold onto but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. When her career and love affair hit their expiration date, Kate sets off on a new adventure….

Starting over in California is easy, but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn’t. Nicholas Lavigne is eager to help her forget, but two things still own her heart, the dream of discovering the next great American novel, and MacDermott Ellis.

As Kate tries to rebuild her life she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest bestsellers publishing has seen in ages and she’s welcomed back with open arms. At the height of her success the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she’d been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart.

Behind the book, there’s always more to the story. Welcome to Publishing, the ego has landed.

If you did not read the first book do not panic as you can pick up the storyline right at the beginning. I do recommend that you read the first book, “The Publicist” when you get the chance as Kate is such a marvelous character you do yourself a disservice if you do not. Things all fall apart for Kate and she relocates to California. However when you are that good at your job she finds herself back in the publishing world. Only this time she is concerned as to whether she will stay there. This saga of Kate makes for an exciting story! I have to admit I do not approve of how she handles her love life but I have no say about anything. Once again there is plenty of action and drama to keep you interested. Kate is a fascinating character in a special world with special needs. And the good news is that there is one more book to go so we still have a great deal more story. I can hardly wait. I recommend this book.

  1. WOW thank you so much, what a really lovely review. So glad you liked Kate. Some folks thought she was a little spoiled. Maybe she kind of is 🙂 But anyway, I really appreciate the time it took to read and review, thank you!
