Her Part to Play by Jenny Erlingsson ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Adanne is a make-up artist working on a movie that is filming in her home city in Alabama.  She is working hard to help save her parent's legacy plus make life easier for her brother so that he can spend more time with his son who has leukemia.  She had been working on secondary actors but one day is asked to do the makeup of the main actor John Pope.  He isn't her favorite person because he got her fired from a movie in Hollywood three years earlier when she missed work because her mother was sick.   Even as she tries to make the best of the situation, there's a lot of tension between them.  John is recovering from substance abuse and has just endured a painful breakup - which the tabloids keep writing about.  He turned his life over to God and started rebuilding his career.  The tension between them turns into sparks of interest.  Can a small-town girl and a Hollywood star make a life together?  The answer is NO if it's up to John's manager.  But decisions are being made by a much higher power and their relationship will flourish or end based on God's leading.

My favorite person in this book was John Pope.  He was really working to change his life and learning how to make his own decisions instead of following the direction of his agent.  He is well aware of the faults of his past but knows that he is becoming a new person after turning his life over to God.

This was an interesting debut novel by this author and I look forward to her future books.

Revell publishes Christian fiction books that are clean with no sex or bad language.  I usually enjoy their books but this one was a bit preachy for me.  Despite that, it was still an enjoyable quick read.
