Pandora English is no ordinary small-town orphan. When she's invited to live with her mysterious great aunt Celia in New York City, she seizes the opportunity to escape her stifling hometown, break from her tragic past and make it as a writer.
Things, however, are not what she is expecting. For starters, her great aunt's gothic mansion is in a mist-wreathed Manhattan suburb that doesn't appear on maps. And then there's Celia herself – a former designer to the stars of Hollywood's Golden Age – who is elegant, unnaturally young, and always wearing a veil. Pandora lands a job at a fashion magazine and her first assignment is covering the A-list launch of the latest miracle cream, BloodofYouth.

Ok But Not Brilliant - Possibly Teen Reader Story
I might suggest it to a young reader - not enough meat on the bones for me - no depth in the story.
Fine you can see the author setting up for a series
The story was slow to start and was not at all complex. There is a very mild love interest and I could see the end of the baddy coming from the moment she enters the factory. There are a couple really silly elements such as the use of 'loose rice' when I thought - how daft does the author think I am?
I will only buy the next in the series if it is included in the special offers.
