When bleeding heart Melody Frank blows the whistle on her boss, she gets fired from her social services job, and no one else in the field will touch her. Enter the fabulous Charles Ribbon, premier party producer for New Yorks rich and famous. Charless assistant is out of commission, and he wants Melody to start working for him at Royal Entertainment right away. Melody accepts the offer, and she is suddenly propelled from working with disabled children from low-income families to planning parties for New Yorks wealthiest elite. She soon proves that she has a talent for saving the day in this new world—but can she save herself?
“A pitch-perfect roman à clef that dishes on how the 1% lives and parties, even as it paints the soul of one man in such true tones and living colors that it carries the reader beyond class and manners to a glimpse of that unnamable starstuff out of which the heart is made.”
-Peter Hayes, author of The Supreme Adventure, the Feathered Serpent and the soon-to-be published, My Lady of the Blog: An Archeo-Forensic Mystery
“Royal Entertainment is a funny and often poignant window into the insular world of the Manhattan A-list event scene, with all its crazy characters and ridiculous intrigues. Marni Fechter has obviously lived it firsthand and its evident on every page. Highly entertaining!”
-Jim David, comic and author of Youll Be Swell
“Read this book! It's a frolic through the insane world of highfalutin private events, and Marni Fechter knows what she's talking about. Fabulous."
-Guy Smith, President, Guy Smith Productions
“A funny, un-put-dowanable romp through the extravagant, dream-making world of ultra-glam NYC event planning, where Park Avenue wives think nothing of multi-million-dollar bar mitzvahs and Arab princesses apologize for 25 million dollar wedding budgets. Unwitting party planner Melody Frank is a loveable heroine with an oversized heart and a social conscience to match.”
-Carolyn Turgeon, author of Fairest of them All
