I have loved all of Gemma Halliday's books but this one was harder to get into. Allie was made into such an unlikable character in the earlier books that I just couldn't warm up to her. There's a fine line between parody and just copying an absurdity, and that's what the author did here. Jon and Kate are so easy to mock but the author doesn't expand or offer a unique twist. I still love the author's other books but this was my least liked of them.
A very fun series with a very enjoyable heroine. The romance was handled nicely, never intruding on the plot. Hollywood tabloids are a super fun arena for mysteries and the author makes the most of celebrities' insanities. Well-written, very funny, and fast moving.
While this book was not nearly as engaging as her other series, I did enjoy it overall. I like the main character and the love complications never elementary too intrusive. Overall, a fun way to spend a few hours with escapism.
I wasn't expecting to find this so enjoyable. However, I did find the main character annoying at times with her insistence at being a detective when she is completely unqualified and pretty much the most unproductive of employees previously. However, I did have fun whipping through this over the weekend.
