The Reluctant Celebrity Review
by Laurie Ellingham
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was cute and heartwarming. Juliet and Guy were very serious in college, but Guy broke up with her and left to pursue a modeling career. Five years later, Juliet has shut herself off emotionally from others. She travels around the country flipping houses, never staying in one place very long.
Guy realizes he is still in love with Juliet and tells a reporter “off the record.” Juliet is furious when she becomes the fascination of the newspaper and sees it as another of Guy’s publicity stunts.
I really enjoyed the characters in this story. The people in the little town that Juliet most recently moved to are really interesting. They are so kind and welcoming to her. I liked Teri especially and her struggles. Guy was an okay love interest. I’m very picky about male love interests in stories and don’t like most, but I didn’t mind Guy. I liked the subplot with his sister. I also liked the subplot of Juliet’s house possibly being haunted!
Overall, this was a sweet, light romance read. I think it was more romance than chick lit. I would definitely recommend it to fans of romance stories and light, summer beach reads!
