Candid and hilarious, Hollywood in Heels: A Small-Town Girl's Adventure in Tinseltown is a light and adventurous memoir about one young woman's brave journey into the land of movie stars and models. Charity G. Finnestad's story of self-discovery is packed with insight on love and relationships and includes her explanation of a number of delightful new phrases like "ass-sets" and "the dating diet". Performed with characteristic humor and wry levity by A. Savalas, this audiobook is a perfect beach listen!


Hollywood in Heels is a sexy, smart, shockingly honest and wickedly hilarious memoir of a young woman finding her way in a city where sex is the primary commodity and illusion the name of the game.

Charity Gaye Finnestad is a small-town girl with big dreams: to go to Los Angeles and make it as a writer.

With only enough money to survive 60 days, she packs her bags, says goodbye to an unhappy marriage, and hits the road in search of her destiny. Struggling to pay the rent with occasional modeling jobs, Charity suddenly finds herself privy to a high-flying, fast-paced life - sipping champagne at exclusive parties with A-list celebrities in the Hollywood Hills by night, and shopping at the 99-Cent Store by day to stretch her tiny budget. She quickly discovers that in Hollywood, as with anywhere, it’s your relationships that matter. Determined to be true to herself, she sets out to make lasting friendships and maybe even discover true love along the way.

Fearless and forthright, Charity delivers the dirt on the ups and downs of living in Tinsel Town. A modern day fairy tale in which the heroine rescues herself and then meets her Prince Charming, Hollywood in Heels is a rollicking fun listen that teaches some very important lessons about life and love.
