Breaking the Rules by Barbara Taylor Bradford

She is a top supermodel, one of the world's most beautiful women. Men love her. Women adore her. So why is someone trying to kill her? Barbara Taylor Bradford's latest blockbuster is the gripping story of courage and revenge, love and passion, treachery and triumph. Following a terrifying encounter in the quiet English countryside, a young woman flees to New York in search of a new life. Adopting the initial M as her name, and reinventing herself, she embarks on a journey that will lead her to the catwalks of Paris, where she becomes the muse and star model to France's iconic designer Jean-Louis Tremont. When M meets the charming and handsome actor Larry Vaughan in New York, they fall instantly in love and marry. Soon, they become the most desired couple on the International scene, appearing on the cover of celebrity magazines, adored by millions. With a successful career and a happy marriage, M believes she has truly put the demons of her past behind her. But M's fortunes are about to take another dramatic twist. A series of bizarre events turn out not to be accidents at all, but assaults on M and her family. The dark figure from M's past, a psychopath with deadly intent, has made a vow: to shatter M's world forever. But M also makes a vow: she will do everything to keep them all safe. When those you love are threatened and at risk, there's nothing you won't do to protect them... you'll even resort to breaking the rules! Moving from New York to the chic fashion capitals of London and Paris, to the exotic locations of Istanbul and Hong Kong, this new tale from a renowned storyteller is a genuine page-turner.

After a horrific incident M runs off from friends and family to reinvent herself (who wouldn't want to do that). Starting by making one friend she finds a place to rent with his girlfriend. She lives under a lucky star and with her natural born beauty and class she's on her way.

Upon reaching heights she has only dreamed of her past comes back to haunt her. Reunited with her famiily she is finally able to confront the past and overcome the family adversity. Good read.
