Review: Scandal Sheet - Gemma Halliday


The first book in the new Hollywood Headlines Mystery - Series by Gemma Halliday is funny, great and a joy to read.Tina Bender's job is to find out all the dirty little secrets nobody wants to share. She is working as a gossip columnist at the infamous L.A. Informer tabloid and loves her job.
But when she starts to receive threatening notes that announce her death, her boss Felix Dunn thinks it's time to team her up with hunky bodyguard Calvin Dean. Tina and the sexy bodyguard are attracted to each other from the beginnig and when the threats become more serious Tina is glad to have Calvin on her side.
But even Calvin can't stop her from digging for the truth about who is willing to kill because of some Hollywood gossip.


"Scandal Sheet" made me laugh a lot and I'm already excited to see how the series goes on. Tina and Calvin are great characters but I also enjoyed reading about Tina's friends and colleagues.Tina is a hilarious heroine, very witty and clever and you have to love her even though I'm normally not a fan of gossip. Calvin is more of a strong and quiet type but with a good sense of humour. Together they make a great couple and I guess he will have his hands full with Tina and her actions in the future.It was also nice to meet some of the characters from the High Heel Mysteries- series again. It's not clear where the relationship between Allie and Felix stands so that's another thing I want to know from the next books in the series. I loved Tina's reaction to Allie and how she doesn't know that Allie and Felix share some past.

"Scandal Sheet" is just the right book to relax after a stressful day and I will definitely read the next book in the series called "The perfect Shot" (coming fall 2010) with Cameron Dakota, L.A. Informer's photographer, in the leading role.
