Former TV star Brandi Tyler’s big screen debut crashed and burned amid rumors of an affair with her married co-star… Now, she wants nothing more than to quietly slink away from Hollywood. When she’s offered an opportunity to get out of town and work on a project involving the photographer that launched her career, it seems like the perfect escape! Unfortunately for Brandi, her famous face makes hiding out even a huge city like Houston a little tricky.
When the celebrated photographer’s son offers to let her use his home for privacy, it seems like everything is falling into place. Little does she know that Michael Ames a gorgeous best selling author, and he comes with the package! As Brandi makes her way through old photographs and new scandals, Michael struggles with his next project, and they both fight the growing attraction between them.
Maybe a posse of new girlfriends, some Texas-sized boozy brunches, and a little private time in the writer’s room will help this leading lady find her path back onscreen. And, if she can just picture it, maybe this time she’ll even find love?
Not everything is perfect
Brandi is an actress who need to escape her life in LA so she agrees to sort the estate of a late famous photographer, Brighton Ames. Michael is Brighton’s son and is a famous writer in his own right and circumstances mean that he and Brandi are now living together
I loved Brandi as a character, she is smart but also vulnerable. She loved Brighton’s work and would pose for him quite a bit so being able to sort through his photographs and to use her education and knowledge makes her the ideal candidate. She is so much more than what people perceive and throughout this book it was seeing her develop, to come to terms with what has happened and to try and find a way forward for her future really made this book for me
Michael isn’t at all sure about having Brandi living in his house but he soon becomes accustomed to it. He seems surprised to find out that she hasn’t read any of his books but he also enjoys hearing her perspective when she does eventually read them. Not as much of the story is written from Michaels point of view and he is a harder character to get to know but seeing him and Brandi learning to communicate and seeing him through her eyes helped to make me come to adore him
The main focus of this book is that not everything is perfect and that sometimes things happen but almost always for a reason. Both Brandi and Michael are going through challenges and to see them start to understand what is important makes this an unputdownable read which I quickly became addicted to
Brandi and Michaels story caught my attention and I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story of acceptance and self discovery with a fabulous cast of characters

Author Bio –
Born in Montreal but raised in New England, author Michelle L. E. Price has been writing as long as anyone can remember. An avid reader who was on the verge of losing her mind as a mom to two small children, Michelle began writing her first book, Hidden in the Writer’s Room, as an escape… at least her characters would do exactly what she told them to do and she could always count on a happily ever after ending. She also enjoys wine, re-watching 90’s sitcoms and occasionally running, but heavily relies on writing to stay sane. Michelle is a firm believer that laughter and love are the best parts of life.
