Confession of a Karaoke Queen by Ella Kingsley
Maddie Mulhern is suddenly in charge. Her parents - former 80s pop duo Pineapple Mist - have left for the summer on a nostalgia tour, entrusting her to manage their struggling karaoke bar, Sing It Back. Panicking over the dodgy finances, Maddie takes a gamble: she signs up for a fly-on-the-wall reality TV series. With her faithful staff (divalicious drag queen Ruby, shy barman Simon and wannabe actress Jasmine) she'll transform the bar into a huge success. Simple. Right?
Executive Producer Evan Bergman knows that scandal sells. It's no coincidence that he hires cool, attractive Nick Craven as director. Evan wants drama on screen - and he'll do anything to get it. As the series builds to a live finale, will Maddie see the truth in a Careless Whisper? Will Nick be able to keep his Poker Face? One thing's for sure: we all do things at karaoke that we regret ..
I bought this book without really knowing much about it. Just that it's a chic lite and I need such book to clear my head on and off.
Confessions of a Karaoke Queen is quite a fun read. It wasn't that good but it wasn't that bad either. Somewhere in between would very be the way the describe it. Because it's a chic lite, there wasn't much character development and the story line is basically just Maddie trying to revitalise the karaoke joint owned by her parents without their knowledge (they are away on holiday) and the way she though would work would be via a reality show and 'get down on it she did'. (cue Kool and The Gang :)
Along the way, what's a chic lite without a love interest?
