Smashwords book reviews by Tina Dreghici

  • Starlight (The Starlight Trilogy Book #1) on May 30, 2013

    Beautifully written, this book is very captivating from the first page. I love all the details about the film industry, which show Alexandra's extensive research and knowledge. It was fascinating to be transported back to a time when certain subjects were taboo. The action is set in Hollywood in the 50's. Marie is a small town girl with a dream to become a teacher. She never thought she would become an actress...but one day, a man enters Schwab's Pharmacy and her life changes. Aidan is a method actor (I had no idea what that means before reading this book) from New York, that came to LA to film a movie. He's a very talented young man, but also haunted by ghosts in his past. I love Aidan, the author has created one of the best structured male characters I have ever read. He is tortured, haunted, dark, but there is a tiny spark of light from the beginning. His path towards the light is sinuous and painful, I cried, smiled, had my stomach into a knot a few times for him. I'll let you discover the rest. This is a beautiful story about innocence, love, fame and redemption. Having read Starbright (the second book in Starlight trilogy), I can tell you it only gets better. Thank you Alexandra for sharing your amazing talent with us. Wishing you continued success!!
