I am HUGE fan of Janice Thompson, and her “Stars Collide” is a great book to add to my collection.
While it doesn’t overflow with the humor of her “Weddings by Bella” series, I still found this book to be quite enjoyable. There is an ease of flow to the story- I even referred to it as “smooth”. Easy to slip into and comfortable to stay, with heartwarming characters and a plot that moves from A to B with the precision and grace of a seasoned storyteller.
Kat and Scott play out a touching romance, both on and off screen, and their interaction with Kat’s movie star grandmother is sweet and gentle. All the characters brought a depth to the plot and the faith element was well played out. It goes beyond mere superficial issues and delves into the heart of the issues Kat faces. I thought the progression through the book was well done.
The romance is sweet, characters endearing, circumstances witty, all set against the drama of Hollywood- a fun and colorful setting. It gives an inside peek into the world of glamour without the moral depravity or clichéd drama that often comes with that culture.
I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book and I definitely think fans (both old and new) of Janice will as well!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
