As a top international catwalk and cover model, Danish-born Penelope Plessen changes her hair like other women change their shoes. Jetting between runways in the world’s most glamorous cities is a gilded dream, but when an old flame reappears during Fashion Week in New York City, she can’t help but wonder — what’s really behind his intoxicating charm?

Late one evening when a run-in with a paparazzi turns deadly, Penelope's friends — Verena, Scarlet, Fianna, Dahlia, and Elena — rally around her, but the stakes are high in what could signal an end to her career — or her life.

The fifth installment of the Love, California series whisks readers from Beverly Hills to stylish New York and pastoral Denmark. STYLE may also read as a stand-alone novel. Sign up at to receive notice of new books in this contemporary series and of Jan’s other historical novels and audiobooks.
