Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Young actress Anna Finnegan is plucked from obscurity in a St. Louis theater to play the lead in a Hollywood western. Shot on location in hardscrabble Redstone, Texas, the film is being sabotaged by an unknown person who has hired local criminals to set fires, steal, and create mayhem on the set. If that’s not enough excitement, Anna is also fending off advances from a lecherous costar and bullying from the other female lead. Off set, she manages to fall for the local blacksmith, Dalton Barnes, who is hardworking, handsome, fiercely proud, and not at all interested in the trappings of Hollywood. Dalton and Anna come up with a plan to expose the saboteur, save the movie, and live happily ever after. Set during the Prohibition era and replete with stereotypical Hollywood and western characters, the latest from romance doyenne Garlock mixes light suspense with traditional romance for an entertaining effect. --Aleksandra Walker

Format: Paperback
This is a historical fiction about living in the late 1920's to mid-1930's when the film industry searched for the next star by visiting theaters and street corners from coast to coast, when the only mode of transportation for long distance was the train, when people went to the theater to be entertained, when those with only a dream of making something of themselves was brighter than any star in the sky. That's what this is about. It's about a woman who did whatever she could to survive her early years and made it to the silver screen. It's about love and hope and greed. It's about how your dreams may not be what you really want after all. Life is filled with surprises. This story is filled with surprises, love, wonder and deceit.

There is mystery in that someone is out to sabotage the film. Who is it? You wonder and enjoy how the new starlet and her first love go about solving the mystery. Will she see her name up in lights and be famous? Will she survive the filming of her first movie? You read until you get to the last page.

The stars over Texas were brighter than any light you may have ever seen. Each star is brighter than a spotlight.

Love. Hope. What else is there?

When I finished this book, I felt content. This was new for me. A book doing this? Now that's writing!

I am normally a big fan of Dorothy Garlock's books but I don't rate this one very highly. I've read about half of the book and have yet to really connect to the characters or the story. I will eventually finish the book but I've put it aside to read something else right now.

I am a long time Garlock fan and have read everything she has written. Unfortunately, this story just did not hold my interest. I had to make myself finish the book. I usually can't put one of DG's books down, put that wasn't the case this time. I thought the characters were boring and shallow. Just disappointing.

Romance with some Mystery!
A well written romance. Just as soon as I thought I knew "who dun nit" the plot twisted and turned again! Garlock novels always are worth the time invested. Enjoy! NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing provided an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Historical romance is not my preferred genre, however I always enjoy this author's books and this is no exception. The story itself-a romance between a blacksmith and a fledgling Hollywood actress is a little different from the author's usual h/h, and the book seemed a little quicker and less detailed, but it was a pleasant and enjoyable change from my usual reading. If you like historical romance this author writes well with a little bit of old fashioned phrasing which adds realism to the experience. Recomended to all lovers of the genre.

We get too much Hollywood these days. I was hoping for something different from Dorothy Garlock. I was somewhat disappointed.
