The Guy From Glamour (The Guy #1) by Skylar M. Cates
The Guy From Glamour (The Guy #1) - Skylar M. Cates

#Contemporary, #GRRC, #MM, #Military, #Romance

 

THE GUY FROM GLAMOUR is the first book in The Guy series, and we start off with a tragedy. Dean is in the army, serving as a Night Stalker, when he finds out his sister has been killed in a car accident, leaving behind a thirteen-year-old daughter, Nikki. He leaves Afghanistan and heads to the US where he meets Anthony. Anthony is Nikki's school Guidance Councillor and also the son of the couple who has been looking after Nikki. The story is basically about Dean, Nikki, and Anthony. They figure out what they're doing, how to work together, and what expectations they should, or shouldn't, have.

I was completely engrossed with this story, loving every word of it. I loved how Dean has his 'tutoring' with Anthony, plus Nikki's easy acceptance of them as a couple. All the characters in this book, whether main or secondary, add something to the story. The pacing was perfect, and I found it very hard to put down.

I definitely want to return to Glamour as there are simply so many characters I want to pair up! Loved this as a first book, and can't wait to read more. Highly recommended by me.

Glamour in Glass - Mary Robinette Kowal
Glamour in Glass - Mary Robinette Kowal

Had this just been a book of Regency magic and manners it would have been charming enough: the period is evoked more convincingly than usual in both dialog and mores. But no, Kowal wasn't content to leave it at that: there are complications such as creative and technological insight and war. You don't get a lot of that sort of development, which is a pity, because I really love seeing characters work through problems and setbacks. There were also books being read, both for information and group entertainment, which doesn't appear nearly as often as it should in books.

So, awesome. All the pleasures of an Austen novel, such as the mortifying realization of how the regular and normal behavior of one's family is perceived by others. But also the kinds of things that are left out of Austen. Although she must have known a great deal about solving problems in her work and testing out various options, I can't recall any instance of someone actually doing anything like work, let alone encountering challenges in it. And the wars, of course, were never mentioned directly, despite the number of officers in uniform who are so very appealing to the young women. Mind, I'm not saying that Kowal is trying to fix Austen in any way, just that she has found interstices in which to introduce other elements without seeming to contradict the historical feel. Plus, the heroine is not beautiful and knows it, a rare element in fiction.

I'm very eagerly looking forward to reading the rest of the series, and then moving on to Kowal's other work.

The Glamour Thieves
The Glamour Thieves - Don Allmon The Glamour Thieves - Don Allmon Many things in this book require additional information, as they are not explained or explored enough. That was the only downfall. However, I am hoping the next installment (or two) will clear up the confusion.

Trouble in Glamour Town
Trouble in Glamour Town - S.R. Mallery

Rosie Paige is an actress in 1926.  She has been pushed into the rush of 1920's Hollywood by her mother, Beatrice who believes that making Rosie a starlet will solve all of her own problems.  Rosie would much rather spend time with her pets and her boyfriend, Eddie who helps out on set.  When the Chester Harris is suddenly shot and killed on the set of a movie Rosie is in, Eddie is considered a prime suspect.  However, with several similar shootings in the past, the police department needs to solve the case quickly and is willing to blame just about anyone in order to call the crime solved exposing the corruption, greed and political influences of the time.

Trouble in Glamour Town is a fast-paced historical mystery set within the mystique of 1920's Hollywood.  This book caught my attention right from the start with an intense look at the murder from the killer's point of view.  After that moment, we still have no idea who committed the crime and the mystery builds.  From that point, Rosie took center stage.  She is a strong character from the start making herself stand apart from the other Hollywood starlets that she is surrounded by.  Despite Rosie's strength of character, she struggles to find her independence due to her dedication to her mother.  Beatrice is the ultimate stage-mother taking a job as a seamstress to be close to Rosie as well as get all the inside gossip.  Beatrice also uses the guilt of Rosie's father leaving them to oversee the comings and goings of Rosie's life along with their superintendent, Walt.  Along with the murder mystery and the suspense of having Eddie as a suspect, this was also a coming of age story for Rosie.  The shooting acted as a jumping point for Rosie to think about getting out of the corruption of Hollywood; she begins to think about her own dreams rather than her mother's and push back.  The mystery itself grows gradually until the end. Along with adding suspense, the killing exposes many nuances of the time period including prohibition, sexuality, and crime.  With an exciting and unexpected conclusion, Trouble in Glamour Town provides a fun and fast historical mystery. 

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
