Books For The Road - Hello, Hollywood!

Romance and humor are a winning combination in Janice Thompson's latest novel, Hello Hollywood!, in the Backstage Pass series. This is your ticket to light-hearted reading on your next travel adventure or from your favorite reading spot at home.

The leading line on the back cover says, "When it comes to love, one thing's for sure--it doesn't follow a script!" How true--especially in the lives of Athena and Stephen who are comedy writers for a popular TV show called Stars Collide, which is also the title of the first book of the series.

Stephen comes to the show and upsets the team of writers as he tries to fit in. Athena, who is head writer, wonders if he's out to take her job. Conflict, the number one element in a good story even if it's a comedy script, abounds not only among the writers but among family. Throw in an inherited Greek Breed Dog who is incorrigible and the mix becomes laugh-worthy.

Thompson's sense of humor is prevelant in many of the books she writes. An earlier book, Gone With The Groom, is a favorite of mine. I read it before I started my blog series called Books For The Road. It would be another recommendation to tuck into your suitcase.
