Book Review: Stars Collide by Janice Thompson
Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom--they are actually head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps. But when Kat's grandmother, an eccentric star from Hollywood's golden age, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of control. Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed family members?
From the soundstage to a Beverly Hills mansion to the gleaming Pacific Ocean, Stars Collide takes you on a roller-coaster tour of Hollywood, packing both comedic punch and tender emotion.
My Review: I didn't much care for this book. It was pretty contrived and predictable. Every one was always upbeat and happy. Always praising God yadda yadda. I know several Christians and they don't throw around so much God praising as this book does. It was all too staged. It was very much removed from reality. If you view the world through rosed-coloured glasses you may enjoy this book, otherwise give it a pass.
