The Friday Column - Belinda Jones California Dreamers Book Review

Book Review - Belinda Jones California Dreamers

I am an avid book reader so I was delighted to be offered this book to read and review.

The story revolves around an English make-up artist, Stella and Hollywood actress Marina Ray. Marina warms to Stella after their first meeting and invites Stella to be her make-up artist on a movie set in California. Stella jumps at the chance at the amazing opportunity and this is where the story really comes alive.

This is a heart warming and fast paced tale of two women with secrets to hide, a quest for love, romance and a back drop of make-up and glamour at its core. In the Californian heat and the film set, hearts melt and passions rise.  The story is told as the voice of Stella which I really like. The main characters are likeable and there is a cute twist to the story which I wasn't expecting at all.

California Dreamers is a light hearted, nice flowing, easy to read book. It is the kind of book that you can put down and pick up at any point without having to think too hard. That said I found I read it quite quickly as I wanted to know where the story was heading. It may have the 'perfect' ending but isn't that just what a girl wants?

If you like chick lit, this is a perfect Summer holiday read.
