Hollywood Homecoming

Description Provided by Goodreads: Make-up artist to the stars. The favorite aunt. Dance teacher. Baby sister. Talented musician and song-writer.
Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’d found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.
Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph… which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in. 
But she was. And her secret will change everything. 
Will it destroy hope for a Hollywood happy ending too?

Story line: While this is the third book in the series and I haven't read any of the other books I found it really easy to keep up with the characters and the relationships between the characters. The series isn't continuous meaning that it's not about one pair of characters, which is something that I liked in this series because you don't have to read the first or second book to be able to read the third book, as I did. Now on to the actual storyline. I really liked this story line because while reading it I could imagine it being turned into a hallmark movie, which I love the Christmas ones. There are many bumps and obstacles in their story that it makes it more interesting than your typical guys falls for girl story.

Joseph: Gah Joseph!!!! He's amazingly sweet, romantic, heroic, humble, and just plain amazing. On the surface he seems perfect; he's a super doctor going out to help the world but he has a secret that changed him as a person but makes his character more human like, which I love to read about.

Helen: I loved Helen because she was a strong character and the inner chatter she had going on in her head was absolutely hilarious. I loved the mystery that revolved around her character and the unexpected turns that her life takes.

Overall: This was a highly entertaining book and I could definitely see it as a movie. The ending was a little predictable except for a certain twist at the end. I would definitely recommend this book to other people!

Rating: I would give this book an 8!
