If you read the blurb for this book, I can guarantee you will get all that and MORE! Lucy is happier playing in the dirt than glamming it up, but she will do anything to help Holden. Yes, some of the issues stars deal with Lucy falls face first into, but the way they come about will have you rolling on the floor.
Meet Lucy Hansen. She’s the richest teenager in the world – and possibly the shyest. She doesn’t flash her business to the paparazzi as she’s getting out of limos or send selfies while smoking salvia. No, Lucy hides behind her frizzy bangs, environmental causes and organic hemp-blend sweats. Her one true friend (and secret crush) Holden is the poorest kid in Beverly Hills – and probably the scrappiest. He interns for a famous private investigator, and when he asks Lucy to help him crack a case, her life turns from tame to tabloid, from glum to glam, from private to private eye. And when the trail leads directly to her hotel magnate father, it’s up to Lucy to solve the case by infiltrating Hollywood’s most elite and unwelcoming club: Celebutantes. Teens who are famous for, well… being famous.
Along the way, “LuHan” endures wardrobe malfunctions, fake romances, compromising videos-turned-YouTube hits, unflattering mug shots and – worst of all – a makeover. Now Lucy has to save her father, dodge the paparazzi, and keep her IRL ID on the DL – all while maybe, almost, possibly having her first real kiss.
If you’ve ever read the tabloids and wondered, “What was she thinking?” then HEIRESS, P.I. offers one possible answer.
Lucy is bold and fearless once she puts her mind to something. When she makes a name for herself she goes ALL OUT! The wardrobe malfunction that happens to Lucy had tears running down my face….from laughter! Everything that Lucy does she does with gusto.
I absolutely loved this story and would love to read more about Lucy! You cannot help but love her and what she stands for. You’ll love how Holden bribes her to do some investigating for him! This book is sweet, funny, and intense. Some of the situations Lucy gets herself into get pretty hairy.
Don’t miss this book!
