Having appeared on General Hospital and All My Children, Hughes has made a world she knows firsthand into the subject of a mild satire-not too daunting a task, considering that soaps satirize themselves five days a week. Hughes has British actress Kate McPhee going to work in Los Angeles on Live for Tomorrow just after discovering that her boyfriend has been sleeping with her best friend. Kate can’t ever quite get it together-she drives for six months with the donut on one of her car’s wheels.

Anne Flosnik might be a lovely person, but she should NOT be an audiobook narrator! Her poor accents and emphasis took almost the first half of the book to get used to and made the characters confusing. The story itself is great until the last five minutes when it ends suddenly and in a quite unsatisfactory manner.

Having escaped to Hollywood after catching her boyfriend in bed with her best friend, London stage actress Kate McPhee is offered a gig on the popular daytime television series Live for Tomorrow. As Devon Merrick - police detective, car crash victim, and love interest for at least two men - she knows all the secrets and sins pulsating in fictional Hope Canyon. But the real drama is off the set, where the soap is indeed slippery. Enter Meredith Contini, the show’s power-wielding diva. Meredith has two rules: Know your place and Stay in it. Kate broke both on day one, which is why she suddenly found her character switching sexual orientation. That brilliant solution came from Daphne del Valle, the show’s barking-mad obsessive/compulsive producer, who drives herself and her actors to enthrall the audience. (“Sell the hurt. Sell the rage. Sell the hunger. Sell the loooooove.”) As gay detective Devon Merrick, Kate is a smash. The show is a hit. But Kate’s private life seems to be becoming something of a drama itself. Especially since everybody thinks she really is gay, which is a problem since she thinks the best cure for her real-life broken heart is to get a man into her bed. But who? Kirk, her sexy, tan, and talented leading man, is involved with Meredith. There’s Matt, the magician who makes her tea, but will her fourteen-hour days keep them from the promise of tangled sheets? And there’s Wyatt, her handsome new co-star, who Kate believes is the great love of her life. Except that he’s married, and his wife, Christine, is Kate’s new makeup artist and the one sane friend she has made in Los Angeles. As the line between television and reality blurs with increasing speed, tension tightens and passions surge. Does Wyatt want Kate as much as she wants him? Will Christine find out? Will Kate lose her new friend? Will Meredith finally have Kate fired? Will Kate ever get to “come out” as heterosexual on the set? Are her steamy kiss scenes fated to be only with beautiful women? Emmy Award–winning actress Finola Hughes whips up a frothy, scathingly funny novel worthy of any afternoon time slot in this delicious romp that takes readers through the twists, turns, and dish that drive the madness that is daytime television.
  • I was looking for a light read after a number of hefty book club selections. This hit the spot, especially since I'm an unabashed soap watcher. I have a sneaking suspicion that this book isn't TOTALLY fiction (wink) but either way, it had me in stitches already in the first chapter. For example, the way women look at and judge other women and the way women judge themselves is laid bare in the first few chapters. While, overall, the entire concept itself is disconcerting and sad, the self-effacing humor is there in spades and I had a total "been there" feeling. It was very easy to connect with the main character even though I'm not in the biz myself... for which I'm glad, because that business is apparently quite cutthroat.

    Good story, good laughs, good read. It's nice to know that the author doesn't take herself too seriously and also has a rather, shall we say, biting wit... and a healthy sense of humor.

  • All the characters were vibrant with their own quirks and talents that kept me pressing the forward button on my Kindle to find out what they would say and do next. I found Kate McPhee to be humble, practical, and full of humor as she makes the most of her new acting role while dealing with the craziness of the soap world, her recent breakup, and emotions for another woman’s husband. The producer, Daphne, had me in hysterics the way she said exactly what was on her mind. This book is pure fun and makes you wonder just how much of Kate McPhee’s life is a reflection of your favorite soap actor. Soapsuds has become one of my all time favorite books (ebook) that I plan to read again and again.

  • It's been a month or so since I read this so I won't try to summarize this book, but let me say I laughed alot while listening to the audio tape and I was sad when I finished it. It was very very funny and I'd have to say, better than some of the soaps on daytime tv!
    I do hope Finola writes more of these sudsy tales, as she is quite adept at it! She should be! She was the queen of daytime tv for years!
    I give this audio-book 5 stars!

  • I expected this to be an ok effort at best but Ms Hughes surprised me, pleasantly. This novel is a funny, realistic look at what soap acting is like. The main character is very relateable and you find yourself, cheering for her, sympathizing with her, and laughing with her. It is filled with unforgetable characters and situations we've all been in at one time or another. I have enjoyed Ms. Hughes' work on screen and am loving it in print. Bravo!

  • More fun than a barrel of monkeys. Well written and engaging it kept me entertained throughout. Good read. Enjoy it!

  • This book is so funny! I loved the book so much that I bought it on Audio CD also which is narrated by Finola Hughes. If you watch soaps you will love this book. Even if you do not watch soaps you'll love it because this book is well written, light, engaging and funny!

  • This was a really good book. I loved it. I liked how it was both funny, and a lot of Drama. Just like a real Soap Opera on Tv. A must read for any soap fan.

  • I love the book!
