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?
I took a risk and started with the final book in the series. I guess I don’t believe in the adage: Save The Best For Last – because reading the blurb, I knew I had to read this first.
I love stories of love and second chances.
Hollywood Homecoming is Helen’s story. She had watched other members of her family fell in love and found their partners. Oh she’s happy for them – but deep inside, she’s single and alone, secretly pinning for someone who is a thousand of miles away from her.
Joseph is a doctor who is off to save the world. They have been exchanging letters for years, trying to be a ‘friend’ to him and hoping he wouldn’t notice how she feels about him. He is her best friend and her someone who got away. But writing letters is totally different from seeing him face to face at their parents’ wedding made Helen realize that her feelings remain the same.
When Joseph once again saw Helen – he was mesmerized. On the contrary, she was never out of his system. He just knew he would do anything to have her. Their past choices may have drifted them apart, but Joseph is willing to take the risk.
I love the characters – especially Helen, she’s everything rolled into one: smart, pretty and a woman of the world. She loves fiercely, intensely and is totally loyal. She and Joseph are just perfect and really meant for each other. Hollywood Homecoming is romance at its finest.

Sasha is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, romance, and travel. She writes both lyrical romantic fantasy AND steamy contemporary romance. Her first play was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she's doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.
