Review of the Starlet Series books posted on Goodreads and Amazon:
Each book contains heartfelt insight. Set in Hollywood, STARLET’S WEB shows us what it is like to be a successful, yet very isolated, teen actress. She’s not only hit with betrayal by her mother, but is forced to confront the reality that being ‘in-demand’ and competitive in the movie business means plastic surgery. STARLET’S RUN shows what it is like to fall deeply in love but be ‘too young’ to commit – especially since everyone around the young couple is terrified of what a divorce would do to her image. Afraid of making mistakes, the adults urge the couple to know themselves first – a great message for everyone. However, the adult decisions of the past have been responsible for Lia’s terrible illness. I loved how Lia stays ‘realistically’ positive in spite of everything and we can all learn from moving on.
The third book in the series, STARLET’S LIGHT, is amazing! It’s a beautiful love story veiled in a scathing social commentary. It shows us all the power of truth and commitment in a world driven by profit and social media ugliness. At first the series reads as a love triangle but it’s not. When I finished the series, I felt like I had been peeling back the leaves of an artichoke and had finally reached the heart.
