Book Description

"Fans of Janet Evanovich will love this spin off of the High Heels Mysteries!" - Jen. B, avid reader

From New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle Bestselling author Gemma Halliday...

Cameron Dakota is the L.A. Informer's staff photographer and paparazzi extraordinaire. Her latest subject is Trace Brody, top-shelf actor and half of America's favorite Hollywood couple. Trace is about to get married in a blow-out wedding, and Cam’s editor, Felix Dunn (from the High Heels Mysteries), has assigned her to get the first shots of the bride and groom. But when Cam takes pictures of what looks like Trace being threatened at gunpoint, she suddenly finds herself smack in the middle of a scandal more sensational than even she could invent. On the run, under fire, and in serious danger of falling in love with one leading man, Cam must get to the bottom of this story... before she becomes tomorrow's headline.

the Hollywood Headlines Mysteries:
Hollywood Scandals - book #1
Hollywood Secrets - book #2
Hollywood Confessions - book #3
Twelve's Drummer Dying - holiday short story


“The latest in the Hollywood Headlines series is 320 pages of pure fun. Halliday has created yet another laugh-out-loud whodunit. She breathes life into her mystery with a rich cast of vivid, pulp-fiction type characters and a heroine worth rooting for. 4 1/2 stars!”
- Romantic Times

"Gemma Halliday's witty, entertaining writing style shines through in her new book! I look forward to seeing lots more of Tina as this series continues. A fun read!"
- Fresh Fiction

"(HOLLYWOOD SCANDALS) is a great start to a new series that I will definitely be following as Halliday writes the kind of books that just make you smile and put you in a great mood. They’re just so enjoyable and I would without a doubt recommend this book to romance and mystery readers alike."
- Enchanted By Books

"(HOLLYWOOD SCANDALS) is very well written with smart and funny dialogue. It is a well-paced story that is thoroughly enjoyable with a mystery, a little romance, and a lot of laughs. Readers are sure to enjoy this delightful tale which is highly recommended."

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story but beware the Kindle Edition April 21, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story. As compared to the first book in the Hollywood Headlines Series, Scandal Sheet, The Perfect Shot had far more action and intrigue. The plot of going on the run with a movie star while on a mad dash to find a missing flashdrive, all the while trying to keep the world famous celebrity from being recognized was fast-paced and incredibly interesting (and the side story of an old Hollywood unsolved mystery was great too). The only complaint I have with the story is that I wished the romance between Trace and Cam could have been a bit more developed, as it was with the hero and heroine in the first book of the series. When they're allowed to banter the chemistry between the two is great, as it was in the scene where they were bonding over a similar past while sharing a hotel room, but these moments are few and far between as compared to the mystery. Also, until the finale of the book, the romance seemed one-sided. Cam's attraction to Trace was obvious, as was the fact that she'd fallen in love with him, but other than saying she was pretty and seeming to find some of the things she said and did amusing you really don't get the sense that Trace is in love with her until the very, very end of the book. Unlike the first book in the series, there are no stolen moments, no almost moments, no kisses until everything wraps up. It seemed like a loss because there was a lot of potential there for a more well-rounded romance.

Additionally it really should be noted that if you are considering purchasing the Kindle edition, BUYER BEWARE. It leaves much to be desired.

1.0 out of 5 stars who typed this thing? March 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I adore my Kindle, and have bought hundreds of books on it, including a few self published ones. This is the first one that appears to have been typed by a person who doesn't speak English. I'm not joking. There is on average, at least one typo per page, so many in fact that I haven't been able to finish the book, and will probably ask for my money back. These are not misspellings, they are the work of someone who pressed the spellcheck button, with no comprehension of a word's meaning. If I were a hard working author like Gemma Halliday I would seriously consider getting a contract with another publisher. The story itself, as with all of her others, is adequately entertaining. Unfortunately, I don't think there is an author out there who could overcome the glaring and never ending errors in the production of this manuscript.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It!!! March 30, 2011
By Terri D
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with all of her books, I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. Cam is a photographer with a tabloid paper trying to do her job when she witnesses the kidnapping of Trace, a big Hollywood star. She finds him, but in the process runs across a dead body and a mystery. Cam and Trace team up to try and find the killer before Trace is next in the body bag.
I love the chemistry that develops between Cam and Trace as the story moves along. I read all of the High Heels mysteries, plus SCANDAL SHEET, the first in the Hollywood Headlines series, and have loved each and every one! Can hardly wait on the next one!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hit from one of my favorite authors November 12, 2012
By Cathy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read this series in reverse order (most recently published first) and I'm wishing I read them in the order in which she wrote them. If you buy them all at once, do read them in publication order - it makes the personal interactions easier to understand and appreciate.

Aside from that the good news is that this is a fast paced, truly enjoyable read. Light enough to be fun, with a plot that holds the interest, and characters to love. Cam Dakota is the very talented photographer for Felix Dunn's (of High Heels fame) tabloid, assigned to take pix of heart throb and rising star Trace Brody. Cam is a much more believable character than Maddie Springer (although I'm definitely a Maddie fan, don't get me wrong), and the characters and plot are well-developed.

Now for the bad news: I have the Kindle version and whoever typed this or transferred it to e-reader format and proofed it needs new eyeglasses. If the book wasn't as good as it is, I would have stopped reading. The typos and formatting issues are down right annoying at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Discovery March 4, 2012
By reader
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun story! It was a quick, light read and perfect for my plane ride. I will definitely read more from this author. The main character was well developed and I found her believable. (but please give her a cookie if she is only 110 lbs. and tall! :) )

I believe this isn't the first book of the series and happily it didn't matter. I had no trouble getting into the character as it stood on it's on quite well. I would recommend this book to my girlfriends for a fast paced romance and look forward to reading more from Gemma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood, sex, scandle and fun! February 5, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gemma Halliday's second Hollywood Headlines series book - Hollywood Secrets. We are introduced to Cameron Dakota, the staff photographer for the L.A. Informer, and she is the paparazzi in the designer clothes. She knows who is who, where to find them and how to shoot them for the cover story of the year. She is following Trace Brody, hot, sexy he-man movie star and his soon to be wife Jamie Lee, the actress of the year, for the inside scoop on the Hollywood Wedding of the year. But Trace is kidnapped. Her boss Felix Dunn (he is also in the High Heel Mysteries) thinks its publicity, but Cam thinks there is more. What follows is a wonderful romp, chases, inside scoops, excitement, romance and murder. Cam only has a short time to solve the riddle or have it dropped.

BTW, the Kindle version I have of this book is formatted well and while there is a spelling error here and there, nothing distracts from the story.

Again, this is so entertaining to read. Gemma Halliday has a way with weaving stories and making them enjoyable, fashionable and fun. And now, I'm hooked on the second series. I am going back to find the first book, so I can catch up!
