Made in Hollywood ~ Michelle Kenner

This is book two of the A Red Carpet Romance.  In this book Noah is a part-time limo driver that lives with his dad a pastor.  He is not sure if he wants to be a pastor or keep the limo business going. When one night he is back late from driving the limo and he finds a beat up girl laying on the church steps.  He calls 911 and goes to the hospital with them.  When the girl (Hannah) will not give any information, for some reason he is drawn to help her.  When Noah's sister visits in the hospital, her and Hannah befriend each other and build a very close relationship.  Hannah is taken in by this family and the relationships between them and God grow.  Everything is going great, when all of a sudden Hannah's past is catching up to her.   Can she stay on God's plan or will she disappear to her past?

I would recommend this book to any age and anyone that likes a read that just doesn't stop with the twist and turns.  This is a read that you won't be able to put down, each chapter leaves you hanging to make you want to read more and more until the end.  I didn't read book 1 and when I was in the middle reading, I thought was there a first book, because of things they talked about, it didn't stop you from understanding this version but you want to know more.  This book will wrap you into the characters.  It felt like a book from all my favorites wrapped into one:  Karen Kingsbury (family & faith), Terry Blackstock (suspense), Melody Carlson (love, fun and romance) with that being said, Michelle is one of my new favorites, I can't wait for book three and now I plan to go back and read book one.  Great Read!

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!
