    Very easy read -- funny, romantic, & slightly suspenseful. Loved the characters -- particularly Aunt Sue & Aunt Mille!

    Avid Book Reader

    I thought this book was a funny, adventurist, touching, and suspeseful romance. Tina Bender is a quirky gossip columist with a gife for writing spicy and original sarcastic barbs about celebritis lives. She ride a hot pink motorcycle, has a secret online romance with an unknown man, lives with her absent-minded loveable aunt, and has deadly threats against her life. Her boss hires a sexy ripped bodyguard to keep her safe. A great book to read.

    A really enjoyable read!

    I just finished this book, and honestly can say that I enjoyed reading it. Scandal Sheet really exceeded my expectations - as a guy, I did not think that I would be in her target audience, but I found myself enjoying the plot, the characters, and the witty approach to telling a tale laced suspense and intrigue set in modern times in LA. To me, it was a story well told. Gemma Halliday's characters were developed nicely so that I could "feel" them; and the situations within the story were credible enough to make it interesting to find out how the story ended.

    If you like an entertaining story with modern-day characters, you should like this book. There is a romantic element to this story as well, but it is not at all told in graphically sexual way, rather it is the development strong emotions within a relationship that is moving from a casual hint of possibility towards a greater closeness. Quite nicely done!

    Cover Drew Me In, Story Kept Me Reading

    First of all, you CAN judge a book by it's cover, because this one is gorgeous and the story won't let you down. I loved it. Gemma Halliday can hold her own among any of the great romance writers.

    Great read for free.

    Definitely worth reading. An easy read. the story line held my interest. Funny. This reminded me of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. So if you like the plum series you should read this and if you liked this book you should definitely check out the Plum series. I thought the cover is a little misleading. I though there would be some hot and steamy scenes but just teasers. oh well, still enjoyed the book.

    Good read, bad editing

    Great book and had a hard time putting it down. Only problems were the editing. We are so reliant on technology that we overlook misspellings. There were numerous incidences of words that are spelled correctly but used out of context and got rather annoying. For example; our/out and addition/addiction. Should maybe have a "real" person proofread. And also, seemed like towards the end the editor got real lazy and said screw it. The last few chapters were un-punctuated and made it rather hard to follow the read. Still a great book and great plot, glad I read it.

    Great Combo of Romance and Suspence

    This was my first book by Gemma Halliday, it was given to me as a gift. I couldn't put it down! Finished it in a night. It was great. And I loved the writing style of the author. I am buying some more by this author. :)

    This is a terrific suspense tale

    L.A. Informer gossip columnist Tina Bender flirts on line with ManInBlack as her only alleged male in her life besides her boss. Tina has no significant other except perhaps Hollywood as she resides with her beloved Great Aunt Sue in a retirement community. She is very worried about Sue, who seems increasingly absentminded.

    When Tina receives a death threat phone call accusing her of malicious lies and deserving instant death, her boss Felix Dunn hires bodyguard Calvin Dean to protect her. The reporter resents Cal hanging around until the threats intensify. A murder too close for comfort shakes up Tina but the intrepid Hollywood journalist decides to kick butt; however her super investigative skills place her in danger of becoming the next victim.

    The first Hollywood Headlines romantic mystery is a wonderful throwback investigative journalist thriller that will remind readers of play/movie The Front Page and His Girl Friday. The story line never slows down as Bender curses and cajoles her way into getting the dirt and gossip while Dean tries to keep her safe, a mission impossible chore due to her always being on the front lines. This is a terrific suspense tale with more appearances from the woman who writes the Scandal Sheet Hollywood Headlines and the man who tries to keep her safe in his arms.

    Over All Entertaining

    The book was not the worst published material I've read but it was not the best either. The plot was standard, the characters shallow, the romance without emotion and the situations the characters found themselves in as well as their solutions were entirely unreal. But if you can get past that and a little bad grammer, the style of writing kept it interesting and engaging. Over all it was an entertaining read.

    Good book. Not great.

    This book was funny and the two aunts are adorable. Like other reviewers, I was a little confused by the last couple of chapters because there were no quotation marks. This was not limited to the e-book by the way. I checked out the paperback at a used book store in my area. That was also missing the quotation marks in the dialogue of the last chapters. I don't know who edited the book, but they need some retraining.

    Great read for a rainy day!

    This book was better than I had expected. I expected some bad romance with a lot of poorly written sex and some lame mystery. But it was free. BUT I was wrong. It was well written and developed. The characters were great and I can't believe such a good book was free!

    Read it! You'll like it.
