Reviews of Hollywood Scandals by Gemma Halliday

Laura Moreno reviewed on May 1, 2021

This book had me laughing literally out loud. Tina Bender is unapologetically true to herself and shows the gumption most of us only dream about. The author includes Aunt Sue and Aunt Millie who are hysterical and make me want to be just like them when I'm in my 80s. Tina is a writer for a gossip column that focuses on celebrity lives. She taunts the wrong person and unwittingly becomes a target for one person who is offended by Tina's column. Let the humor begin!!!!!

I loved this book. Tina is a riot. She is a a strong woman that does not want any help. After she received a threat on her voice mail, her boss, Felix, stepped in and got her a temporary bodyguard. When Tina first met Cal, the rent-a-goon, her words, not mine, sarcasm was scattered everywhere. She did not need or want a bodyguard. Tina was stuck with one, if she wanted to continue to go out and do her job.

Tina also had a friendship via IM. She would confide in this person, ManInBlack72. There was definitely a You’ve Got Mail, thing going on in the book. Laugh out loud humor.

I could just see the characters from the descriptions in the book. There is lots of details about even small things.

I could not put the book down.

Hollywood Scandals (Hollywood Headlines, #1) by Gemma Halliday

Tina is a writer for a "Gossip Magazine". She is feisty, fun and loves her job, life is good. Then she gets a death threat, unless she stops writing about someone. She teams up with a body guard and a few other writers to try to solve this mystery.

A fast paced story with likable characters, humor, mystery and murder. A classic "who-done-it" writing style, set in Hollywood, keeping you guessing until the end. Overall I found Hollywood Scandals quite enjoyable and feel those who enjoy a cozy murder/mystery will enjoy as well.
