Grace Cavanaugh is a Ph.D. candidate in Women’s Studies whose thesis hypothesis is beauty leads to misery.  Her octogenarian Great Aunt Sophia, a retired movie star, asks her to spend the summer with her as she heals from surgery.  Though her aunt hurt her badly when she was a little girl, Grace agrees as Aunt Sophia is the anecdotal poster child of her thesis.


Grace assumes Aunt Sophia is alone in Pebble beach so she reached out desperately to her great niece.  Instead Aunt Sophia may suffer from arthritis and have ancient skin, but remains a dynamite queen of her mansion and beyond as it’s the attitude that makes a bombshell a bombshell even at eighty-five.  Her aunt mentors her into letting out her inner bombshell and soon Grace has two different men Declan and Andrew enthralled by her beauty.


This is an amusing lighthearted chick lit tale in which the triangle participants are overshadowed by the geriatric actress.  Sub-genre fans will enjoy Grace gets her groove but seemingly at the cost of her dissertation as Great Aunt Sophia’s Lessons for Bombshells is based on the hypothesis that beauty is more than skin deep with the right attitude.
