"Stars Collide" by Janice Thompson

Interesting to say the least, this book is about an on-stage couple that becomes an item off-stage. The protagonist Kat plays Angie that is in love with Jack, who is Scott in real life. In an effort to boost ratings and increase publicity, the producers want Kat and Scott to pretend to be a couple so the paparazzi will cook up some stories. Craziness ensues. The drama escalates as Kat's grandmother is stuck in the past and suffering from memory loss and confusion. Family secrets come out, and love blooms. Several characters pray and refer to the LORD. However, the only time the name of Jesus is mentioned is when a pastor performs marital vows. This story is engaging, but around the 150ish page mark, things slow down. However, around the late 200s, the pace picks back up again.

Available January 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
