This book is fun-- plain and simple. It has funny, quirky characters (I just love the aunts!) that make you laugh. It's a quick and easy read. I generally reserve 5 stars for truly fantastic books (so I don't give them often), so 4 stars to me is still a very, very good read. I definitely recommend it. I think I read somewhere that this is going to be part of a series. If so, I am very much looking forward to the next installment.

Warning to Kindle users, however. It seems that the editing on the Kindle version fell through the cracks, so to speak, about 80% or 90% of the way through the book. All of a sudden all of the quotation marks disappear! It made the last part of the book a bit of a challenge to read. :-)

Hollywood gossip columnist Tina Bender has the scoop on all the latest celebrities. She has no hesitation whatsoever to print the latest news --- no matter how scandalous and she has even been known to bend the truth a little in the name of a story. When Tina receives an anonymous threat, her whole world is upturned especially when it comes to the sexy bodyguard, Calvin Dean, that her boss hires to keep her safe. How can she do her job with him shadowing her? But as the threats become more deadly, his presence might be exactly what she needs and in more ways than one. Until now, Tina's lacks any real connection to those around her. Her love life is confined to a internet friendship with ManInBlack72 and she lives in a retirement home with her Aunt Sue. As the danger mounts, so does the heat between this gossip columnist and bodyguard. Together, they will have to sift through all the stories she has printed and discover just who might be willing to commit murder.

Gemma Halliday's sassy new Hollywood Headlines series in SCANDAL SHEET starts off with a bang. Humorous, slightly outrageous and playful, this mystery romance also touches the heart in moments amid the fast-paced race to catch the culprit. A crazy set of Hollywood characters make up the suspect list, characters just as wild as the stories Tina creates from even the slightest innuendo. Tina may ride a hot pink Honda Rebel motorcycle complete with yellow flames, but beneath the tough exterior she wears on the job, her life lacks the kind of intimacy and indeed non-virtual friendship a woman needs. Sexy, protective and yet willing listen, Cal is just the man for this independent, sassy tabloid reporter.

The first book in the new Hollywood Headlines Mystery - Series by Gemma Halliday is funny, great and a joy to read.

Tina Bender's job is to find out all the dirty little secrets nobody wants to share. She is working as a gossip columnist at the infamous L.A. Informer tabloid and loves her job.
But when she starts to receive threatening notes that announce her death, her boss Felix Dunn thinks it's time to team her up with hunky bodyguard Calvin Dean. Tina and the sexy bodyguard are attracted to each other from the beginnig and when the threats become more serious Tina is glad to have Calvin on her side.
But even Calvin can't stop her from digging for the truth about who is willing to kill because of some Hollywood gossip.

"Scandal Sheet" made me laugh a lot and I'm already excited to see how the series goes on. Tina and Calvin are great characters but I also enjoyed reading about Tina's friends and colleagues.
Tina is a hilarious heroine, very witty and clever and you have to love her even though I'm normally not a fan of gossip. Calvin is more of a strong and quiet type but with a good sense of humour. Together they make a great couple and I guess he will have his hands full with Tina and her actions in the future.
It was also nice to meet some of the characters from the High Heel Mysteries- series again. It's not clear where the relationship between Allie and Felix stands so that's another thing I want to know from the next books in the series. I loved Tina's reaction to Allie and how she doesn't know that Allie and Felix share some past.

"Scandal Sheet" is just the right book to relax after a stressful day and I will definitely read the next book in the series called "The perfect Shot" (coming fall 2010) with Cameron Dakota, L.A. Informer's photographer, in the leading role

I loved Halliday's series with Maddie, the Tiny Tot shoe designer who kept walking her high heels into murder, so had high hopes for this new series. And I wasn't disappointed.

Main character, Tina Bender, works for Felix at the LA Informer, and she's full of spunk and promise. What a chick! What a read!

Plus, I love the way people from the first series get pulled into this one. Besides Felix, Marco makes several swishy appearances, and is as priceless as he's always been. While he was Maddie's connection to gossip and all things fashion in the previous series, now he's one of Tina Bender's links to stars and gossip to fuel her column.

When I start reading a book I have certian expectations of it based on the author and thier previous books. Books that exceed my expectations get a 5-star rating. Having never read any books by this author I wasn't expecting a whole lot, however; I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It pulled me into the storyline and it was one of those books I didn't want to put down until I was done reading it.

It was a more light-hearted, humor-filled, suspense/romance book without detailed death scenes and no sex scenes. I loved the quirky characters especially Aunt Sue, Aunt Millie, and Tina Bender (with her purple hair, pink Honda motorcycle, and Strawberry Shortcake purse). This book made me laugh out loud several times. No it wasn't perfect... the bad guy had an over-the-top motive and the romance was predictable (as it is with all other romance novels). I would recommend this book to those looking for a quick read suspense/romance book that will make you laugh but is not too mentally taxing. I read this book on the Kindle and didn't notice any formating errors like at least one other reviewer talked about... then again maybe I was too involved in the story to notice!

Good job to Gemma Halliday... I love your sense of humor and look forward to reading other books of yours.
