Kathi Oram Peterson's Star Struck stars Mercedes Grant, who is known for her action-hero role of Stormy Ryan. Mercedes escapes to take a relaxing break in her remote cabin near Idaho's Snake River seeking relief only to find she has a cold, parents and a stalker she can't shake. She meets the town's physician, Luke Parker, and finds an unexpected illness and a friend.
To be honest, I only picked up this book because I wanted something to read and was getting tired of the books I had at home. The summary on the back and the cover wasn't engaging enough to seem interesting, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The actual story and characters were interesting and engaging. The story contained suspense, romance and action. At times the suspense felt a little forced when the author made recommendations of different stalker suspects, but the rest of the book flowed easily. I love characterizations of Mercedes' parents and Winona, Luke's 90-some year old nurse. The minor characters were just as memorable as the major characters. To learn more, click here.
