Star Struck by Kathi Oram Peterson, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway!
Mercedes Grant is known to the world as Stormy Ryan, action hero. Her movie-star status has led to some unpleasant interactions in the past, and even a few stalkers, but none has ever come close enough to her to seem dangerous—until now. When she receives a death threat on her personal cell phone, she is understandably shaken. Seizing the opportunity to take some time away from the limelight while the police investigate the phone call, Mercedes escapes to her remote cabin near Idaho’s Snake River. She knows it is the perfect place to lie low, but she doesn’t realize how low she’ll actually feel once she arrives. After days of suffering from a cold she just can’t shake, Mercedes visits the town physician, Luke Parker. The handsome doctor, a fan of the stunning celebrity, performs the necessary tests and is devastated at the unexpected diagnosis he must give her. Mercedes is sick—really sick. He knows she can handle crazy fans, but the news he has to give is another story. As Mercedes struggles to come to terms with her new future, she relies on Luke’s support. But neither imagines the disease is not the only danger Mercedes is facing—because just out of view, someone is watching her and is determined to make good on their threat.
This was quite an interesting read! Mercedes in a famous actress, born to one of Hollywood's most elite couples. She received a death threat so she seeks solace in her secluded cabin in Idaho. She ends up getting really sick and turns to the only clinic in the small town for medicine. Where she happens to meet the super handsome and rural town Doctor, Luke. He is widowed with a teenage daughter. The story just spirals from there. While I completely enjoyed this story and each character in it, I felt like the suspense fell a little flat for me. I have read many suspenseful romance books by LDS authors, and while this one is definitely worth the read (good overall story), the suspense was lacking for me personally. However, the author did a great job keeping the reader guessing as to who the stalker really was and I could not figure it out for anything! So kudos for keeping me guessing and for an enjoyable story!
