Navigating the post-university world is tough. Unable to find a direction, Hollie moves back in with her mum and nan and gets a job at the local electrical store. It’s boring and under-stimulating, but it pays the bills.
Until one day, when she can’t handle her boss’s customer stealing, or leering, or games of Spider Solitaire any longer.
Once again without a direction, she drives to Scotland to visit her best friend Fayth.
Fayth lost her mum and sister in a car accident just six months ago, and she can’t wake up, go to work, or even walk the dogs without something reminding her of them.
To make matters worse, her ex-husband cheated on her not long after their death, and he still thinks she’ll take him back.
Fed up with their lives and in need of a change of scenery, the two friends go on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to New York.
When Hollie goes for a last-minute toilet break and gets locked out of the theatre, little does she realise she’s about to meet model-turned-stunt performer Astin Mack.
Astin introduces them to the Hollywood elite, but is all as it seems? Is the grass any greener just because they have fame, money, and power, or are they just as susceptible to love and loss as everyone else?
What Happens in New York is the sexy, sassy debut novel by author, poet, and blogger Kristina Adams. If you love stories of fame, fashion, and friendship, it’s not to be missed!
