Publication Date: November 12, 2017
eBook & Paperback; 202 Pages
Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance/Mystery
"Trouble in Glamour Town is very historically accurate, portraying the real workings of the Hollywood sleaze, dishonesty and corruption happening at that time. S.R. Mallery is a gifted author who drew me into the story from the first word and kept me reading until the very last page...Trouble in Glamour Town is an old fashioned type of murder mystery story and is a very good read." - Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite
I love books set in the 20s, and having this one set in Hollywood among movie stars is a bonus. That it's also a murder mystery books add to the charm as well. And it all starts with a film producer gunned down. Why and by whom is the big question? Could it be someone on the set, someone that has a grudge? Or is it mob related? Rosie didn't think that this murder would involve her, but when the policeman investigating the case takes an interest in her (personally wink wink) and her beau Eddie will this case be very personal.
This book is perfect for historical mystery fans, especially if you like me like the 20s (Hollywood). It does look like an open and shut case, but towards the end, you realize that nothing is what it seems and that it just how I like it when it comes to mystery books. The slow realization, when all the pieces start to fit and the pace starts to get more intense.
I also liked the cameos of celebrities that showed up in the book. Especially Lon Chaney, who played an important role in this book. I found the book to quite good, and I liked both Rosie and Eddie, although Rosie's mother was a bit strenuous, but her past makes that quite understandable.
About the AuthorS.R. Mallery, two-time READERS’ FAVORITE Gold Medal Winner, has been labeled nothing short of 'eclectic'. She has been a singer, a calligrapher, a quilt designer, and an ESL teacher. As a writer, History is her focus and is woven into her stories with a delicate thread. When people talk about the news of the day, or listen to music, her imagination likens the story to a similar kind of news in the past and is conjuring up scenes between characters she has yet to meet.
S.R. Mallery's books include The Dolan Girls, Genteel Secrets, Unexpected Gifts, Sewing Can Be Dangerous And Other Small Threads, Tales to Count On, and Trouble in Glamour Town.
