Lynn Blanchett's Steps to Happiness:

Step 1: Find a job. (Done! I'm doing PR for hotshot young designer Muriel B. — which I'm totally unqualified for.)

Step 2: Find a man. (Check! There's a rich, gorgeous man chasing me…so what if I find him infinitely less appealing than my charming, possibly gay, French coworker?)

Step 3: Find a translator. (Hmm? I do have that French-English dictionary…but it so doesn't help with the language of love.)

Step 4: Find a shower. (I did just fly in from New York.… I can't be fabulous all the time!)

Dropped into a ridiculously cushy job in Paris by her distant fashion-icon mother, all Lynn has to do to prove she's not a fraud (which she is!) is figure out what exactly her job entails, how she got involved in something that can only be described as fashion treason and how to untangle her love life in time to make Muriel B.'s next runway show the event of the season. With time running short and expertise running low, Lynn has little to guide her but a self-help manual that promises twenty steps to happiness.

Written by a fashion insider, 21 Steps to Happiness is a dishy must-read whose narrator boldly and hilariously goes where no young American in Paris has gone before — behind the seams.
