Content

Getting ahead in Hollywood poses a challenge for Raquel Azorian, a lowly marketing assistant at a major production company, and while she has ambition, energy, and smarts, the heroine of Candela’s wry latest doesn’t have a mentor or even a boss who can hold it together. Determined to chart a course that will save her job and yield a well-deserved promotion, Raquel goes Working Girl, calls on her few friends, and begins making big plans. When a sexy superior takes an interest in her, there’s equal potential for success and disaster: meanwhile, her parents and brother have plenty of problems and lean on Raquel for help. Candela (More Than This) combines a cunning wit with a deep understanding of the office politics specific to the entertainment industry to create a frantic atmosphere and a near breathless momentum as the story barrels toward an ending that’s anything but your focusgrouped happy fade-out.

Lead Review

With her dead-on observations and well-drawn characters, Margo Candela clearly knows Los Angeles, Hollywood culture, corporate culture, and dysfunctional family dynamics. (Up in the Fog)
