The messy lives of book people

Patrick, Phaedra (author.).

Summary: "Liv Green barely scrapes by to make ends meet, often finding escape in a good book. She can't believe her luck when she lands a job housekeeping for her hero, bestselling author Essie Starling. The last thin Liv expected was to be the only person Essie talks to, which leads to a tenuous friendship. When Exxie passes away suddenly, Live is astonished to learn that her dying wish was for Live to complete her final novel. To do so Liv will have to step into Essie's shoes. As Liv begins to write, she uncovers secrets from the past that reveal a surprising connection between the two women that will change Liv's own story forever.--back cover
