COVER REVEAL: A Beautiful Rival - Gill Paul

I'm a huge fan of Gill Paul's books so I’m very excited for the publication new novel about the rivalry between cosmetic queens Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden.  A Beautiful Rival is publishing on 31st August 2023 in UK, Australia and New Zealand and 5th September 2023 in US. So without further ado, let's have a look at the cover... 

Isn't it just gorgeous?  It looks so glamorous (and bitchy) and I can't wait to read it.

Here's a little bit about the book:

In this stunning new novel, bestselling author Gill Paul reveals the infamous rivalry of cosmetic titans Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein.

They could have been allies: two self-made millionaires who invented a global industry, in an era when wife and mother were supposed to be any woman’s highest goal. Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein each founded empires built on grit and determination…and yet they became locked in a feud spanning three continents, two world wars, and the Great Depression.

Brought up in poverty, Canadian-born Arden changed popular opinion about make up—persuading women from all walks of life to buy skincare products promising them youth and beauty. Rubinstein left her native Poland, launching her own company with scientific claims about miracle creams and anti-aging herbs.

And when it came to business, nothing was off-limits: poaching employees, copying products, planting spies, hiring ex-husbands, and one-upping each other every chance they had. This was a rivalry from which there was no surrender!  And through it all, were two women, bold, brazen, and determined to succeed—no matter the personal cost.
