I was surprised that this book was interesting and a good read because so many Christian fiction books have a character in show business. Unexpected story line, a main character that shares her faith and a surprising ending. I enjoyed that the author skipped over potential rabbit trails like the ex- boyfriend. I gave it 4 stars because the first chapter was not captivating but I am pleased I continued reading.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What a great story! After spending a year in almost complete isolation, Harper finally gets her big break as an actress. But she still isn't happy, as she longs for a meaningful relationship in her life. In desperation and loneliness, she rather skeptically registers for an online dating service. Even Harper is surprised by the outcome.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The most amazing thing that I found about this story was the typical Hollywood setting and how it was mixed with an incredible woman of strong faith in God. Her witness and lifestyle was a clear and honest testimony to everyone that she came in contact with. This story is an inspiration to anyone who might struggle with being honest with our co-workers and friends about what we believe.

Thank you to Audra Jennings at B & B Media for my review copy of this most interesting Christian fiction romance story.This is the first book I've read by this author who enjoys using metaphors and similes. When the story begins, the protagonist, a thirty-year-old wanna-be actress, is at the bottom of her barrel. We watch her struggle and see her story unfold. Intertwined with all of the backstage politics is an internet romance. I learned a good bit about both the career of an actor and online dating.Just when I felt that I had the plot all figured out, the author throws in a twist and then another, until I gave up and just enjoyed the read. Truly, I did not guess the ending. I predict you'll enjoy this one too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Charming romance filled with faith and fun
Screen Play by Chris Coppernoll is a refreshing romance full of faith and hope. Harper Gray has had a rough year: dumped by her boyfriend, a too-long dry spell of no acting jobs, and feeling like she has no purpose, nothing left to live for. The only reason she survived financially was because of residuals from a cold medicine commercial. After giving her heart to the Lord, everything starts to change. She's hired to be the understudy in a play on Broadway working along with her best friend Avril. Then Harper gives online dating a try and finds a couple of men who spark her interest. Things get even better when she ends up in the lead role and astounds the critics and the theatrical world, but she may discover that she'd give it all up for love. Coppernoll does a terrific job of writing Harper's voice, a skill not many male authors possess. Her meteoric rise to fame along with falling in love makes her story a compelling peek into Hollywood and Broadway. (Oddly enough, I had just read a biography of Amelia Earhart to my daughter before finishing up this novel last night. Readers will catch the reference.) Coppernoll is an emerging writer in the Christian romance field, and this may just be his best work yet.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
