Author: Jacquelyn Middleton
Published: October 2016, Kirkwall Books
Format: Paperback, 394 pages
 
A New City A New Start. Same Old Demons.

Alex Sinclair couldn’t jump on a plane fast enough. Broken from an unexpected betrayal, the twenty-one-year-old flees sunny Florida for the Britannia cool of London—home of her favourite TV shows, plays, and fangirl heroes. Alex believes London is where she belongs, where she’ll heal old wounds, and chase her dream of writing for the theatre. Staying with her British friend Harry with barely a year’s rent money in her pocket, the clock is ticking.

But when a wealthy rival fueled by ambition and jealousy threatens her career and a fledgling romance, Alex once again questions her self-worth—and is left wondering if London is where she truly belongs.
