For light, rom comm, chick lit, Alison Sweeney sure knows how to deliver. But what makes her novels special, is all the behind-the-scenes entertainment industry detail that her characters live in. With her third outing, Opportunity Knocks, Alison tells the story of Alex, aspiring make-up artist, who moves from L.A. to New York to prove herself to her parents, her boyfriend, and most importantly herself. Opportunity knocks, and she answers. But how could Alex know that in mere weeks, while successfully serving as make-up artist to a popular cooking show host with severe diva tendencies, it would all come crashing down, threatening not only her newly found independence, but her very welfare!

Fortunately, Alex has caught they eye of super-celebrity actor Billy Fox, perfect specimen of gorgeousness, and eager to help Alex get out of the incredibly tight spot she has found herself in. While some of the romantic elements of the novel slightly undercut Alex's true road to independence, Sweeney works hard to keep Alex as the primary focus and agent of her life. As Billy points out to her, there's a difference between letting others make decisions for you or swoop in to save your bacon when you're in trouble, and asking friends for some help.

As long as Alison Sweeney keeps writing these fun, breezy, behind-the-scenes confections, I will keep reading them. I think she's found a great market for her talent.
