~ Synopsis ~
When fifteen minutes of fame goes horribly wrong…
Charlotte Young and her five closest friends ring in the New Year on a ski vacation in the swanky, celebrity-packed French Alps, where her world collides with long-time celeb crush, Des Bannerman—aka “The King of Rom-Com.” Unexpectedly, Charlotte finds herself happily reconciled to an innocent evening of drinking champagne, gambling, and chatting to the celebrity of her dreams.
Charlotte’s friends join forces to help her realize her lifelong fantasy, yet his girlfriend, the latest Bond Girl, proves an insurmountable obstacle. Lighthearted banter turns into tabloid fodder and leaves Charlotte saddled with a restraining order.
With the help of her friends, Charlotte finds the answers to life’s biggest questions while trying to deal with the fallout of her fifteen minutes of fame.
Prosecco & Paparazzi is a contemporary romantic comedy about what happens when the paths of a celebrity god and a mere mortal collide.
“Pure, lighthearted entertainment, one mishap at a time! Charlotte’s misadventures and Ms. Kennedy’s keen sense of wit, charm and humor will leave you with a smile on your face and a passport to fun in your hand!” -Dianne Bylo, Tome Tender
~ A Tasty Cocktail to Drink Along ~
This is my favorite prosecco cocktail… but, I’ve been known to enjoy an ice cold glass of the lively sparkling wine all by itself!—Celia
Lemon and Elderflower Fizz
75 ml gin
Juice ½ lemon
2 t. caster sugar
50 ml elderflower cordial
750 ml bottle prosecco
4 T. lemon sorbet
To decorate 2 T. caster sugar
Juice and strips of zest from ½ lemon
To decorate the glasses with a sugar rim, tip the sugar onto a flat plate and the lemon juice into a bowl. Dip the rim of each glass in the juice then twist on the plate of sugar to stick. Put the gin, lemon juice, sugar, and elderflower cordial into a large jug. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the prosecco then the sorbet, and give it a good stir. Pour into the prepared glasses and pop in a few strips of lemon zest.
