Virtual Tour Book Review: Down and Out In Beverly Heels by Kathryn Leigh Scott

About the Book:
Down and Out in Beverly Heels tells the story of Meg Barnes, a beloved actress for her role as TV detective Jinx Forgarty, who has it all and loses everything — and ends up living on the streets of Tinsel Town in her Ritz-Volvo, thanks to her newlywed con-man husband. This novel, a fun, light-hearted romance, take us into the Hollywood social swirl, but also delves into the gritty truth of what it is to be “homeless and hiding it” in one of the most glittering, fashionable cities in the world. It’s also a story of redemption with a Thelma and Louise twist as Meg, incorporating skills she learned as a TV detective, tracks down her fugitive husband and struggles to regain her reputation, career and friendships.

My Review:
This is a perfect book for light summer reading! After losing everything,  Meg Barnes is learning how to live in her car ( and sometimes sleeping in other people's cars ) and to take showers at the local Fitness Center to get herself ready to be at her new job on time!  No one knows where her Husband is, and the mystery element of this story is intriguing!  The Characters are well developed and the story keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next!
Without giving too much away....this is a great story about trying to find love, and working thru obstacles that are thrown your way. 

About the Author:

 Kathryn Leigh Scott is an actress, probably best known for creating the roles of Josette DuPres and Maggie Evans, the love interests of vampire Barnabas Collins in the cult classic TV show “Dark Shadows.” Down and Out in Beverly Heels is her second work of fiction.

My Recent Favorite Books


  1. Hi Melissa,
    Your line up for July looks great, I need to get reading! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!
    Miz Helen

  2. Sounds like a fun, light read! I just finished the book I have been reading for the last couple of weeks, so it's off to the library I go tomorrow :)

  3. Nice review! You have me interested! I like summer reads that are fun diversions that you can grab every time you have to stop and wait for something...appointments, dry cleaning, etc!

  4. It sounds like a fun book to read while parked on a hammock on the beach!

  5. Yup, perfect read for my time on the lakeside beach. :)

  6. Oh this looks good. I'm starting to read other genres (other than mysteries) and I might have to have to add this to my list.

  7. Thanks for stopping by everyone! =)
    I really enjoyed this book!

  8. Yay, a book blog! So glad I found you and I'm following on my email.

  9. Wow, I haven't read a book like this in YEARS! Your review reminded me of how much I use to love reading before I got into the whole busy blogging thing!

  10. Oh my goodness I had no idea that the author played Josette on Dark Shadows--that was one of my favorite shows when I was young. Small world, Haha!

  11. Mystery and fun, that sounds like my kind of book. We have had stormy weather daily for almost 3 months now and I think it's Gods way of telling me I need to rest and read (lol), because that's all I've been able to do with the Internet down almost all day every day.
    I've read some great books and I'm going to add this one to my next list of must reads. Thank you so much for sharing.

  12. Looks like fun!

  13. This sounds like a good read! I'll have to put it on my wishlist!


I love comments, thanks so much for stopping by!
