9780099505785: Acting Up

From the bestselling author of The Learning Curve.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large ego must be in want of a woman to cut him down to size…

Sharp, witty Jasmin Field has her own column in a national magazine and has just landed the coveted role of Elizabeth Bennett in a one-off fundraising adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Better yet, the play’s director, Hollywood heartthrob and Oscar-winner, Harry Noble, is every bit as obnoxious as she could have hoped. Which means a lot of material for her column. And a lot of fun in rehearsals.

And then disaster strikes. Jazz’s best friend abandons her for a man not worthy to buy her chocolate, her family starts to crumble before her eyes and her award-winning column hits the skids. Worse still, Harry Noble keeps staring at her.

As the lights dim, the audience hush, and Jazz awaits her cue, she realizes two very important things, one: she can’t remember her lines, and two: Harry Noble looks amazing in breeches…

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large ego must be in want of a woman to cut him down to size...

When journalist Jasmin Field lands the coveted role of Elizabeth Bennet in a one-off fundraising adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, she is not surprised to find that the play's director, Hollywood heart-throb Harry Noble, is every bit as obnoxious as she could have hoped.

And then disaster strikes. Jazz's best friend abandons her for a man not worthy to buy her chocolate, her family starts to crumble before her eyes and her award-winning column hits the skids. Worse still, Harry Noble keeps staring at her.

As the lights dim, the audience hush and Jazz awaits her cue, she realises two very important things, one: she can't remember her lines, and two: Harry Noble looks amazing in breeches...
