Hollywood Hero – Madelle Morgan

This book contains:

  • mentions of alcohol and drug abuse
  • an almost drowning of a young girl

Wendy is a young PA, recently out of university working for a world-famous actor. An actor she has a massive crush on and who she’s hoping will notice her and want to be with her.

Haldon on the other hand is hiding a massive secret, a secret that could potentially ruin his career, not to mention his own crush on Wendy. Given how his first marriage ended and why, he’s understandably worried about opening up to Wendy, especially because he’s her boss.

Halden whisks Wendy away on a two-week getaway to Muskoka to fish and look for his own private fishing get away. During their getaway, we learn some surprising truths about them both, including some that almost ruin their chances.

As a simple contemporary romance, I think this is a great story. Although at times I also wondered why Wendy would like someone like Haldon in the first place. Although he put in a lot of effort to grow up, I’m not sure how much going back to him helps women’s rights and sexism?

I had a great time reading it, enjoyed the simple pleasure of Wendy standing up for herself and the right to have true love. But I also had this weird sense of not feeling entirely happy with how this all played out.

Author Bio

Growing up, Madelle enjoyed nineteen summers at her grandparents’ cottage on Georgian Bay in the beautiful District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.

Muskoka is Canada’s summer playground for many wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. The Hollywood in Muskoka series updates the upstairs/downstairs trope: successful people in the film industry on vacation fall for service providers.

Madelle lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband and their labradoodle Raven. She dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.

Uncork My Love – Rich Amooi

This book contains:

  • emotional betrayal from previous marriages
  • description of being hit by a car and left injured by an ex-wife

Ivy and Ted are both wine makers, one based in Napa Valley and struggling financially after the betrayal of an ex-husband, the other based in Petaluma with an incessant desire to help others. With the help of some meddling grandmothers, they find themselves in some precarious situations that end up challenging their previous conceptions of each other.

Ted’s grandmother comes to him with a proposal that set’s his worrying off the charts which in turn sets off a chain of events that leads him to Ivy’s vineyard, and Ivy. With several ill-advised adventures along the way, Ivy and Ted get to know each other and over time end up “working together” in a way that almost ruins their chances.

This is another great example of Rich’s talents as a writer and his ability to capture a woman’s heart and opinions. I found myself laughing the whole way through, especially once we figured out what the grandmothers were up to.
