Publisher's Summary

It's 1955, and four talented young women become best friends while living at the Hollywood Studio Club, the famous boarding house for movie hopefuls.

Julia Newman is a rising star. As Goldstar Studios' 'new Grace Kelly', she has been sent to the Club to keep her out of trouble, though Julia is just thrilled to finally make friends.

For Peggy Carmichael, Julia's roommate, life is not so easy. She takes classes, auditions constantly, and grabs whatever bit-part is offered. Still her 'big break' remains stubbornly out of reach.

Meanwhile Vivienne Lockhart, the most talented actress of them all, is constantly reduced to 'sexpot' roles. She'll do whatever it takes to succeed. But is she driven by ambition, or by a heart-breaking need to be loved?

Finally there's aspiring scriptwriter Sadie Shore, who has little interest in the trappings of fame. Particularly when she becomes the PA of a big studio boss, and her eyes are opened to the perils of her friends' dreams...

Critic Reviews

'Fans of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo will love Lisa Ireland's cinematic new novel. Set in the Golden Age of Hollywood, The Studio Girls is opulent and scandalous, yet ultimately uplifting. Ireland's best yet!' Sally Hepworth

'Inspired by fascinating real-life history, The Studio Girls is a stunning tale of love, friendship and secrets, perfect for fans of Natasha Lester and Fiona Davis. Sure to be one of the biggest books of 2024!' Kelly Rimmer

'If Sex and the City was set in 1950s Hollywood, with the perfect mix of gossip, glam and scandal! But it's the moving friendships, heartbreaks and the enduring spirit of women that made this book hard to put down.' Kerryn Mayne
