In 1907 San Bernardino Mountains, California, Peerless Studio movie director Martin Tafft begins filming Indian Love Song. One of the stars is Brenda Fitzpatrick, a beautiful woman who hides her above average intelligence so she can make it as an actress. Martin¿s research assistant on the movie picture is Boston College graduate Colin Peters a hunk who hides his devastating looks behind nerd glasses so he can make it as an intellect.

However, Colin becomes disenchanted with the blatant errors that the film contains as Martin brushes off his feedback for the most part as unnecessarily unimportant. Colin finds himself attracted to Brenda, but believes the brainless beauty could never fall for a civilian like him. Brenda finds herself attracted to Colin, but believes a brilliant brain could never fall for an actress.

BEAUTY AND THE BRAIN, the second Dream Maker novel (see COWBOY FOR HIRE), is an entertaining historical romance that brings to life a bygone fascinating era of Americana history. The story line contains tidbits of early Hollywood (on location) through a lovable cast. The lead couple is fun to observe as sparks fly, but neither can see beneath the mask of the other although both Brenda and Colin sense something off kilter. The secondary characters augment the intriguing plot with a feel for the period and propel the story line forward. Alice Duncan¿s homage to the silent screen is another triumphant novel.

If it wasn't for needing a good editor I would have awarded this story 5 stars. It was thoroughly enjoyable read with delightful touches about the making of silent movies. Brenda is a warm and intelligent woman who gradually softens Colin into a feeling human being with both love and passion. I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.
