"Birds of California" follows Fiona, a former teen star on a show that sounds a lot like 7th Heaven, and her former co-star who is trying to convince her to come back for a reboot. She crashed and burned publicly toward the end of her time on the show, and she's not interested in visiting the spotlight again. But her friendship with Sam opens something up in her, and she begins to wonder if things could be better.

I love a good dynamic character. Fiona isn't always pleasant, and she's adept at self-sabotage, but dang if I didn't love seeing her grow and soften. I also love Hollywood romance and books set in California, so that was spot-on for me.
