Pretty Famous by Carla Caruso

Celeste Pretty is getting married!

A dark secret from Hollywood's Golden Age. A possible prince-in-hiding. Astonvale's about to implode...
Professional organiser Celeste Pretty swore she'd never work with uber-blonde interior designer Imogen Karmel again, but then she's presented with a project she can't refuse. The prestigious Astonvale College is celebrating its centenary and needs the pair to ensure the festivities go off without a hitch.
As Celeste sets to work in a flurry of activity - in between organising her own engagement party - she finds herself blowing away the cobwebs on a sixty-year-old secret.
Meanwhile, Imogen becomes enamoured with a substitute teacher, Hudson Addison, who may or may not be a royal in hiding. And there's nothing Imogen dreams of more than becoming a princess.
Will all be revealed on party night?

Hey! Here's my review.

A fun light romantic cozy mystery. This is the third book in the Astonvale series. 

Celeste Pretty is back and has another run in with Imogen. This book lets us get to know Imogen better. I didn't like her in the previous books, but there is more to Imogen than blonde hair and money. Celeste and Imogen work together on a big project while each having their own little mysteries to solve and romances. I loved all the little Australian references such as vegemite sandwiches.  

Thank you Carla Caruso for the special mention in the Acknowledgements at the end. I ran around the house with a silly grin on my face after reading that! I look forward to your next book!
