Even with the spelling errors that are usually distracting for me, I enjoyed the humor of the Aunts . I am 64 and loved this book, I have read 4 of Gemma's books since December, and love them. I feel like I am right there in the action. Yes it was predictable but still an enjoyable read. Thanks for the entertainment that is so much better than the T.V.!!!!!

I enjoyed this book a lot, kept me laughing and on the edge of my seat, guessing what was going to happen next. A book full of wacky characters I think you will enjoy.

A quick read. The character development is thin and the plot spotty. Editing very dicey, especially towards the end of the book. Might not have finished it if it had been longer. Not a bad story line, just not well-developed enough.

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

The three main Characters were rather well developed.

This is a good read. Laugh out loud funny at times while sweet and tender at others...with some great action mixed in. I will definitely read more in this series.

I missed this disclaimer and when I started reading it I thought "I know this story". Loved the story, just disappointed that I paid AGAIN for the same book. I know buyer beware.

This book was OK. The ending was good, but I had trouble staying interested in the story throughout the beginning and middle. I can't say I'd recommend it, but I would give the series one more try because I did like the main character and her Aunt.

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!

This I got when it was a free download. I loved it. I have ordered more from her because it was wonderful. Hilarious and still you were trying to figure out who did it.......Would recommend to everyone!!

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.

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.

This was an exciting and compelling story. I loved every word of it. I think you will also. The reporter did a great job finding her theatening person and it shocked her and me who it was. Must read.

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.

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. :)

Fluffy. Take 1 paparazza, one scandal rag, a lot of testosterone, and a boatload of snarks and humor and you have a nice beach read.

Possibly the best yet of Gemma Halliday's books (and I think this is the 14th one I've read). Sharp, funny and just a perfect read after you have had too much reality from your everyday life. I am also filling out paperwork to have Aunt Sue and Aunt Millie adopt me.

Wonderful Humorous Book! This is a great humorous book by Gemma Halliday. This is the first book in the Hollywood Headlines series. This is such a fun read that had me reading until the end. Tina Bender is a gossip columnist for a tabloid and is not afraid to print what she knows about everyone. That is until she receives a letter telling her “If you don’t stop writing about me, you’re dead.” The problem is she doesn’t know who sent it to her. She gets the help from her friends to try and solve who sent her the letter and why they are willing to kill to cover up their secrets. I can’t wait to read the next books in this series. This book has it all humor, romance, and mystery. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Very good read! I love the characters, the story is part funny, mystery and romantic. I have enjoyed this series very much! The crossover between High Heels Mysteries and Hollywood Headlines is awesome!

(FTC:If I can ever stop laughing I will tell you I received this book from the author as a thank you for signing up for her newsletter. In no way did this influence my opinions, which, as usual, are 100% my own) Without a doubt, this is the most fun I have had reading a mystery in a long time. I was laughing so hard towards the end.... OK, that said, I love the chracters in the book: Tina Bender, the gossip reporter, her Aunts Sue and Millie, ,her boss Felix, and the other various worker bees at the paper, and Cal, a recent addition to this very long list who figures heavily in the story after some disgruntled reader threatens Tina. I am not a plot spoiler, so all I can say is pull up a virgin margarita, put your feet up, and get ready for a ride around Tina's Small World
