Summary from Goodreads:
Make-up artist to the stars. The favorite aunt. Dance teacher. Baby sister. Talented musician and song-writer.
Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’d found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.
Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph… which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in.
But she was. And her secret will change everything. Will it destroy hope for a Hollywood happy ending too?
5 of 5 Hollywood Homecoming
Hollywood Homecoming is an amazing story. This is the first book in the series that I have read but I was not lost like I thought I would be. I loved every page and I wanted more when it was over. I decided I was going to read the first two books. But this book is about Helen and Helen loves her life. She has an awesome family and nieces and nephews she loves. Helen also has an awesome job she is a make up artist for Hollywood and she loves her job. There is only one thing missing from Helen's life and that is love. She does not have a man and that is okay because Helen's heart belongs to someone and she refuses to give it to anyone else beside him.
See she has been in love with Joseph since she was a teen. She loves everything about him but she has never told him how much he means to her. She has kept it a secret and because she has never told anyone how she feels about Joseph. Then Joseph leaves to be a doctor in Africa and has been gone for two years. For two years she has tried to get over him but she can't. Then Joseph comes back for the wedding and all her feelings come flooding back for him.
Joseph has become a doctor and has decided he will be a traveling doctor and go to Africa to help the people out there. But when Joseph returns home for the wedding he realizes he has missed so much of his families lives. He has missed birthdays, holidays, and everything in between. He also realizes that he has missed the one special girl that makes his day when he reads her letters. When he sees his special girl his hearts starts to race and he realizes he better say something soon because he may lose her to someone else.
Can Joseph and Helen be together? Will they tell each other how they really feel about each other?
Barnes & Noble:
Happy Endings are for fairy tales. Or the movies. Not for real life. At least, not in Claire’s life. Even though she’s starting over, she knows better than to want too much this time. But when she falls, literally, into the strong arms of Hollywood’s ‘it’ boy Josh Wiley, Claire’s in for some surprises.
Her plans for rest and relaxation are forgotten as one incredible night with Josh becomes two… And her heart begins to want him as much as her body. Will two kids, one bastard ex-husband, and Josh’s juggernaut career mean the end of their affair? Or can Claire find her happy ending after all?
All she wants for Christmas is for Hollywood to love her again. But once she meets him, her Christmas list changes.
Jen’s only Christmas wish: Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she loves that he has no idea who her alter-ego is: Jen Fleming, Hollywood bad-girl and paparazzi target number one. Why ruin an amazing affair when he’s leaving after the new year?
But the closer they get, the harder she falls, and the more she wants to tell Gunner everything. Especially once he shares his secret with her.
Her new Christmas wish: Gunner accepts and loves her for who she really is.
