THE ALICE '65

After a family tragedy, Adam Verlain just wanted to hide away from the world. His job as a book cataloguer for a small English university in London was perfect for that. But when they acquired a newly discovered, extremely rare and valuable 1865 edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", they wanted him to go to Los Angeles to pick it up.

Adam hated even the thought of leaving his careful, cloistered world, and only let them send him when promised the book would be brought to him at the airport. That way, he could return home on the very next flight.

But then he met the amazingly beautiful Casey Blanchard, the movie star who inherited The Alice '65...and she won't let him have the book unless he accompanies her to a premier of her latest film for reasons that seem...well, quite odd.

By this point, Adam is forced to go along...because if he does not get the book, he'll lose a job he loves. But throughout the night, his careful, cloistered world is sent spinning into a chaotic mix of a too-cool henna artist, her demon toddler, her fan-boy husband, a protective mother, a drill-sergeant stylist, questionable edibles, two mistaken identities, hysterical fans, Hollywood royalty, their courtiers and minions, maniacal LA drivers, an outlandish party, a drowning pool in Beverly Hills, a love-struck panther on a homemade veldt, 50 cans of salmon, a bubble bath...and the terrifying realization that he’s fallen in love with a woman every man in the world desires and whom he knows he cannot trust. And what's worse? Could never love him back.

Or could she?
