Starstruck in Willow Falls | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


As a Hollywood film crew and famous movie stars swoop into Willow Falls to film a full-length motion picture, the small town’s new normal as a popular North Georgia tourist destination is thrown into chaos.

Weeks away from marrying the manager of the town’s new winery Rachel Streetman fears her life-long dream to act is drifting into oblivion and leaving behind bitter regret. She wonders if auditioning for a role in the movie will boost her lackluster career or open the door to a lifestyle incompatible with the small-town life she has come to accept.

Rachel’s sister, Emily Hayes, also has a dream—to be a famous author. But the release of her debut novel is upstaged by the Hollywood invasion. When she and Rachel accept the role as the director’s liaisons, their patience is stretched to the limit by starstruck residents and ego-driven celebrities.

Can these two sisters survive the chaos in Willow Falls and still achieve their dreams?

“I guess a car isn’t dramatic enough for a male publicity hound.” Emily shot a photo of the crowd. “One good thing, it will make a great front-page story for next week’s paper.”

Gertie sidestepped her way past the teenagers and stood beside Emily. “Things around here get a little crazier every day.”

“Movie madness,” Emily said with a grin. “Are you a Justin Brooks fan?”

“Honey, I don’t have a clue who the young man is. But I figure anyone coming into town with this much fanfare is worth a look.”
