My Review

I have read the most of Allison's books and each of them are completely different. The first book in this series I really didn't like so I was hesitant on reading this one, (I haven't read book two yet). This book was much better than I expected and really amazed me with it's multi-character depth. There is a lot going on in this book, at times it was hard to follow. I liked most of the characters though Dana was my favorite. There is a lot of drama and so many secrets in this book it was hard to keep them all straight. I thought I was reading a different author for awhile and was really impressed with how Allison pulled off this story line. Hollywood in the twenties comes with all kinds of scandals and people. Allison portrays God through the midst of change and developed a great story!

Four and a half stars!
