Caught on Camera
Madelle Morgan
(Hollywood in Muskoka, #1)
Publication date: September 9th 2016
Genres: Comedy, New Adult, Romance
To achieve her dream of working on Hollywood film sets, star struck chambermaid Rachel Lehmann needs $35,000 for film school tuition by the end of the summer. When she’s asked to fill in for a missing bridesmaid at a movie star’s wedding, it’s her big chance to take candid photos of celebrities and sell them to the entertainment media. Then groomsman Mickey McNichol, agent to the stars, sweeps her off her feet.
Mickey’s bitter experience is that everyone in show business fakes emotions. When he falls for the stand-in bridesmaid, he thinks he’s finally met a beautiful woman he can trust. But if Rachel betrays his friends’ privacy, Mickey will ensure she never works in Hollywood.



My Musings :

I received the ebook free of charge for an honest review.

I picked this book based on the blurb. The situation outlined intrigued me and I was sure it would be a good read. And I have to say the author didn't disappoint me. This is another new author to me so I didn't know what to expect but she went beyond my expectations.

The characters were refreshing and well developed. Rachel is a strong woman whom I liked a lot. At the beginning I had my doubt but as the story progressed I fell in like with her. As for Mickey, well, he was my favourite from the start. I just loved his character. At the end, both of them satisfied my heart!

The side characters add a lot to the main characters and the story. They add more life and they are also as developed as the protagonists. I loved reading about them. The story seemed to happen in a short time frame but it had lot of development during that time. It was full of drama, romance, humour, love and sadness. It catered to all sides of my heart and mind. It left me with a complete tale covering all the pertinent details.

This book also deals with themes like honesty in a relationship and how to overcome differences too. This in turn made the characters realistic to me. It was refreshing to read about the complications in a relationship and how honesty can make everything better at the end.

All in all, it was an entertaining read and this has made me want to read more of the author's works.

My rating : 5/5



Author Bio:
Madelle completed four novels before Ellora’s Cave Publishing Inc. contracted to publish her debut romantic suspense, Diamond Lust—republished as Diamond Hunter—and a sexy, short free read, The Next Big Thing, in 2010.
When Madelle realized her author voice is more suited to light, humorous contemporary romance, she went waaaay back to her teen years for the Hollywood in Muskoka series setting. Madelle, her sisters, and assorted pets enjoyed idyllic summers at a lake in the District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.
The Muskoka lakes’ forested shorelines are dotted with palatial properties owned by wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. At sixteen, being neither rich nor famous, Madelle worked briefly as a chambermaid at the now-closed Delawana Inn, a local resort.
Madelle is retired from an engineering career in the federal public service and lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband. She tries to keep fit with cycling, Pilates, and yoga, and dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.
She tweets and posts on Facebook and Goodreads about Hollywood, filmmaking, Muskoka, and, of course, writing. She blogs the second Tuesday of the month at romancingthegenres.blogspot.com and occasionally on her own website.
