Publisher Synopsis:

Los Angeles, Present Day. When an iconic hat worn by Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind  ends up in Christine McAllister’s vintage clothing boutique by mistake, her efforts to return it to its owner take her on a journey more enchanting than any classic movie…

Los Angeles, 1938.  Violet Mayfield sets out to reinvent herself in Hollywood after her  dream of becoming a wife and mother falls apart, and lands a job on the film-set of Gone With the Wind. There, she meets enigmatic Audrey Duvall, a once-rising film star who is now a fellow secretary. Audrey’s zest for life and their adventures together among Hollywood’s glitterati enthrall Violet…until each woman’s deepest desires collide.  What Audrey and Violet are willing to risk, for themselves and for each other, to ensure their own happy endings will shape their friendship, and their lives, far into the future.


In 1940, GONE WITH THE WIND swept the Oscars. (The Oscar statuette–purchased by the late Michael Jackson–is still in the news because it has “gone” missing.) I would love a behind the scenes glimpse of the drama that went into making one of the most beloved (and controversial) films of all time.

Susan Meissner‘s moving novels have made me a long-time fan, and STARS OVER SUNSET BOULEVARD is high on my TBR pile. I have one copy to give away to a lucky commenter below. Please tell me your favorite Meissner novel, or who you want to see win an Oscar in 2016. Please share on social media and enter by 9 PM ET on Wednesday, March 2nd. (US and Canada only.) Good Luck!

    I’ve never read any of Susan Meissner’s books, but I keep hearing so many wonderful things about this book in particular. I would love to see Tom Hardy win although I don’t think it will happen.

    My favorite novel by Susan so far is LADY IN WAITING. I have a few others on my TBR pile that I will need to move up higher. Looking forward to reading STARS OVER SUNSET BOULEVARD as GONE WITH THE WIND is my all time favorite movie.

    I was so glad to see Leonardo DiCaprio win! I’d love to read Stars Over Sunset Boulevard. It looks like a fantastic read.

  6. Coming late to the game here…I’ve never read any of Meissner’s books, but many titles are intriguing. I was also very happy to see Leo FINALLY win an Oscar. He’s such a versatile and talented actor!
