Product description

Review

I was hooked before the end of the prologue, needing to know what happens to Alice. With believable characters to care about, memories of my own teenage years in the seventies evoked by descriptive passages and a real insight into 'behind the scenes' in theatreland, I couldn't put it down...    Kathy Taylor - television personality

 

This terrific story is inhabited by fabulously wicked people who are easy to loathe. Counterbalance this with an endearing heroine and friends we'd all love to have as our own and you understand why this novel works so well. And the ending... oh, the ending! You just have to read this book...   Anne Woodward - author

 

The era is re-created with authenticity; the characterswholly believable... I see productions as the polished outcome of this intriguing, often unpleasant world where characters reflect individuals from all of society. And the ending... astonishingly cleverly crafted!...       Amazon review April 2017

 

Praise for previous books:

I assumed it would be lightweight, formulaic chick-lit, an enjoyable read but little else. I was wrong. It was well written with a pace that grips the reader and believable characters that I cared about... Linda's Book Bag (blogger)

 

Entertaining and heartfelt emotions - Julia Roberts writes believable story-lines for characters that come across as real and imperfect. Holly's story is captivating and emotional... David Reviews - top 500 reviewer on Amazon

 

I really got caught up in this book and became so involved with all the characters and their many twists and turns... exactly what I love for a good read! An impressive first novel... Lulu - International singing star

 

A slice of sheer escapism which packs an emotional punch... Jemma Forte - novelist

 

This is page-turningly unputdownable... I started off thinking I would read the first chapter but stood up many hours later, cold, stiff and hungry - I had read the whole thing! A great holiday read or, in my case, and 'at home' distraction... Andrea McLean - Loose Women TV presenter

Wow Wow Wow, finished reading this book in less than two days.
Once I started reading it, I just couldn't put it down. The characters in this book are so real, it feels like you know them and feel for them . Alice is like any girl next door with great talent and big dreams, you feel for her and want her to make it, and Gina my heart went out to her, and what she had to go through.
But the ending of the book is what took my breath away, what a clever writer Julia is, I have to re read it to believe it, I don't want to say much to spoil it for other reader.
I read every day and buy a great deal of books from Amazon, and I have only 3 authors that I do buy all there books because I know that they never disappoint. I can now honesty say that Julia Robert not just joint the list of these authors but she is the top of the list. Hand on heart I will buy any book she writes, she is one amazing author. Thank you for a very enjoyable Alice in Theatre land, Julia. Can't wait for your next book.

Julia Roberts is not only the best QVC presenter, she has rubber stamped the fact that she is a fab writer with 'Alice in Theatreland'. I had read, and really enjoyed, the Liberty Sands trilogy ....if you haven't read them you must! This book is such a change of direction and style. From the start, Alice draws the reader into the world of dreams of stardom. The main character is so endearing and you just want her to succeed. Throw in unscrupulous producers, reinvented pop stars, a story that you can't stop reading and you have a number 1 bestseller. The outstanding character for me is Gina....hence the title of my review. Gutsy, loyal, a constant in Alice's life, everything someone needs in a friend. The ending of the book is a bit 'heart in the mouth, who are they at the graveside of' ...... had me going!!

The mention of 'a couple of Brandy and Babychams' brought back memories of me and my lovely dad on my wedding day....he made them for us before we left for the Church. Other references to the 70's brought back memories for me too! Julia, I loved your latest book. Keep writing....you're a natural! xx

I loved this book !! It is very different from Liberty Sands Trilogy which I also thoroughly enjoyed , Which to me shows what a versatile writer Julia is.
Once I started reading this I could not put it down .Really warmed to some of the characters especially Alice Abbott the heroine, Gina and Peter. Slight twist at the end and I was extremely Happy with the ending...I hope we hear more about Alice in the future Julia.!! Am now really looking forward to Julia's next book which I will be first in line to read..
I thoroughly recommend this book.

I was a little apprehensive about reading this book after being totally in love with Julia's trilogy but I needn't have worried as this book is fantastic. I loved the story, the characters and the twists and turns. Well done Julia. Another terrific book. Well done. As before, I can't wait for the next one. Xxx

Liberty Sands was the trilogy that saw me through the early days following hip replacement - fantastic read, all three novels. "Alice" is so different. The era ( mine too) is re-created with authenticity; the characters wholly believable; the setting, an unfamiliar one to me - I see the productions as the polished outcome of this intriguing, and often unpleasant world where characters reflect individuals from all of society but thrown together in this competitive microcosm have their traits accentuated. And, the ending ... astonishingly cleverly crafted! A one-sitting must read.

What can I add to what people have already said about Julia and her books. They are just great. Once you start you have to carry on. I tried hard to not finish this book, as I kicked myself after finishing Julia's other three. I do hope there will be a follow on to this one, just to let us know how the two get on over the pond. Looking forward to your next book.

Was not sure about this book at first as I adored the first three books that Julia had written and this seemed very different. Boy was I wrong! This book is every bit as good with great characters and several twists and turns which keep you wanting to turn to the next page.
If anyone wants a good book to read while on holiday I highly recommend Alice in Theatreland
