Limelight: A Novel
Limelight kicks off when its main character, Allison Brinkley, makes the bold decision to move her family of five from Texas to New York City. Allison expects glamour and excitement from her new life in the Big Apple, but her experience begins with one disappointment after another. Although the move proves to be unexpectedly difficult for Allison, everything begins to turn around after she accidentally meets pop star Carter Reid. Allison meets Carter after he has been abandoned by his staff and hit rock bottom. She takes on the role of Carter’s personal assistant and is tasked with helping Carter out of his slump and convincing him to keep his commitment to star in the new Broadway musical Limelight.
Amy Poeppel’s novel is relatable, her characters are vibrant and unconventional, and the storyline is intriguing for anyone who has ever been enchanted by the urban allure of New York City.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
