Blog Tour and Giveaway: Made in Hollywood by Michelle Keener

About the Book

Book:  Made in Hollywood
Author: Michelle Keener
Genre:  Christian Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 10, 2020

When a pastor’s son saves her life, can a prodigal daughter dare to believe in second chances?

Noah Shaw is almost thirty and he still doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up. Torn between running his business as a limo driver for Hollywood’s elite, and feeling called to ministry, he prays for direction. But he never expects that direction to include finding a woman near-death on the front steps of his father’s church.

Hannah left her family and her faith when she moved to Hollywood looking for adventure. Instead of finding fame in the movies, she was lured into the life of an exotic dancer. Hopeless and ashamed, suicide seems like her only escape. Until the night Noah saves her life.

The Shaw family welcomes her into their home and gives her a chance to start over. When the shadows of her former life threaten to expose her past, she must choose between running away or fighting for the new life she’s built and the man she’s grown to love.

The Story of a Prodigal Daughter

Made in Hollywood is the sequel to my first Christian romance novel Mission Hollywood. It’s the story of Lily’s brother Noah and his search for love and direction. In the book, Noah meets a young girl who has been through some truly dark and terrible places. She’s been wounded, abused, and she’s lost hope. She’s worried that her past is too much for God to forgive, and that she’s fallen too far and doesn’t deserve God’s grace. She is a prodigal daughter lost on the streets of Hollywood.

One of the reasons I wrote Made in Hollywood (aside from the fact that I just adore Noah) is to be a reminder that God never gives up on us. Just like the story of the Prodigal Son, if we turn back to God, He will run to us and bring us home.

There is no place so dark that God light can’t reach.

There is no sin, no mistake, no circumstance that can separate us from the love of God. His arms are always open to us. His love is unchanging, unending, and unfailing. His amazing grace reaches the lost and restores what was broken. His love binds our wounds and heals our past. What the enemy intended for evil, God will turn to good. It’s a truth Hannah had to learn. It’s a truth I had to learn. And it’s a truth God wants His people to share. God’s love never fails.
I hope you enjoy Made in Hollywood!

My Review:

Made in Hollywood is the first book I have read by Michelle Keener. It is, also, the second installment from her A Red Carpet Romance series. Even though it is part of a series, I feel as though it can be read as a stand alone. I did not feel like I was missing anything that was covered in the first book, Mission Hollywood. However, I do plan on going back to read that one in the near future.

I really liked Made in Hollywood. It My favorite character was Hannah. I felt connected to her. She was so broken and lost. I am sure many readers would be able to relate to her. I was so glad to see that she was rescued by Noah. I enjoyed watching the two learn how to grow and learn to have faith.

 Made in Hollywood four and a half stars. I look forward to reading more from A Red Carpet Romance series. I definitely have to read the first book, Mission Hollywood, to see what happened previously. I recommend this one for readers who enjoy a clean romance with relatable and true to life characters. It is most definitely worth a read.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
