Acting Obsessed Book Review


 
If you like mystery along with some romance thrown in for good measure, then you will love this book. It's called Acting Obsessed by Peter Silverman.
 
Synopsis of Acting Obsessed:
A novel of romance and drama, stalking and violence, mystery and intrigue in the historic heart of Philadelphia. In Ginger Brossard’s life the line that divides obsession from passion seems especially thin and easily crossed. As a young and talented actress with a burning ambition to be on the stage, she embarks on a career with a theater company in Philadelphia.  
An actor in the company soon displays an unwanted interest in her. When she turns his advances aside, meets an intriguing new man, and then receives a costly and beautiful gift from an anonymous admirer, Ginger finds herself entangled in a web of unanswered questions from the past, lethal danger, and the obsession of an unknown person who may have the power to devastate her life. In the end, she comes face to face with betrayal and violent death.
Poor Ginger! She just can't seem to catch a break in her life. First she lets Tony talk her into leaving home and going with him to Hollywood. They are married and Tony starts getting roles left and right but Ginger can't seem to catch a break. She also is very naive when it comes to Tony.

She catches him in an affair with one of the actresses who plays a part in one of his projects. She divorces Tony and moves to Philadelphia where she thinks all of her problems are finally behind her. She starts getting parts and is so very happy. Until she meets Grady who is very weird and gets even more weird when he is drinking. What is actually an innocent incident while they are drinking together one night, he mistakes for something else and vows revenge.

Like I said, she just goes from one frying pan to another. Will she finally meet someone who will be good to her? Well, that won't happen until she figures out who the mystery man is that sends her gifts and puts a stop to them. But, in the process, she is in danger and will need help to get out of it.

Happy Reading!

I enjoy reading both romance and mystery. But it makes it even better if they are combined in the same book. Thanks for having the giveaway.
