The Star AttractionDays of Our Lives Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier, Balanced LifeMany people know Alison Sweeney from her work hosting NBC’s The Biggest Loser and her long-running role as Sami Brady on Days of Our Lives. Recently, she took on a new challenge and wrote The Star Attraction, her debut novel. Sophie Atwater is a self-confessed workaholic. She loves her job as a publicist at a well-respected Los Angeles firm. When she is chosen for the highly sought-after job of representing A-list actor Billy Fox, Sophie is thrilled, but soon her interactions with Billy take a flirty turn that puts her relationship with her long-term boyfriend Jacob in jeopardy. After she’s caught in an ill-advised make-out session with Billy, Sophie’s life and career fall apart. She has to decide what she really wants for her life and take charge to get it.

 

Sweeney’s insider knowledge of life in Hollywood is evident in the story. Sophie has a clear and distinct voice, and reading her story feels like gossiping with a friend. With a wry sense of humor, The Star Attraction is a fun, fast read that will remind readers of classic chick lit novels like Lauren Weisberger’s The Devil Wears Prada.
 

Days of Our Lives fans also won’t want to miss Days of Our Lives Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier, Balanced Life by Greg Meng and Eddie Campbell.  Featuring plenty of color photos of the cast, this book includes recipes, fitness tips, fashion advice and lifestyle solutions from your favorite Days stars.
