A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

The Art of Falling in Love with the Movie Star (again) by Anne Kemp: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

All’s fair in love and war…until you’re forced into an RV with your ex.

Amelia: I had it all; a loving marriage, an adorable dog, and plans to build the home of our dreams in idyllic Sweetkiss Creek. Moving here meant we focused on us, and starting a family, but those dreams came crashing down when Spencer made the choice to go back to Hollywood and left me flying solo.

Christmas snowflakes fall, fate jingles its bells and my estranged movie star husband returns for the reading of my late aunt's will. But it's not just legal matters and tinsel-covered nerves that he brings; oh no, this man is on a mission—to unwrap the gift of a second chance with me.

Spencer: On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me: Divorce papers. Now, I'm on a yuletide quest to win back my leading lady. You know, sugar plums, mistletoe and all the festive feels dancing in my head like an over-the-top rom-com montage.

Comical to think that an RV we inherit could become the sleigh to propel us back together, with a sprinkle of redemption and a dash of eggnog-induced chaos, of course. Could this be the holiday miracle I’m hoping for?

The Art of Falling in Love with the Movie Star is a second chance Christmas rom com with a one year time jump, serious forced proximity, sizzling and swoony kisses, and lots of love from Barney the Beagle. It’s a chemistry and tension collision in this closed door romance!

Anne Kemp is a bestselling author of romantic comedies. She loves reading (and she does it ridiculously fast, too!), gluten-free baking (because everyone needs a hobby that makes them crazy), and finding time to binge-watch her favorite shows. She grew up in Maryland but made Los Angeles her home until she encountered her own real-life meet-cute at a friend's wedding where she ended up married to one of the groomsmen. For real.

Anne now lives on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand, and even though she was married at Mt. Doom, no…she doesn’t have a Hobbit. However, she and her husband do have a terrier named George Clooney and when she’s not writing, she’s usually with them taking a long walk on the river by their home.

The Art of Falling in Love with the Movie Star (Again) is the third book in the Sweetkiss Creek series. While you will see some familiar characters if you've read the previous books in the series, this could certainly be enjoyed just fine as a standalone as well. 

As a romance reader, I love seeing a couple meet and fall in love for the first time. But as someone who has been married for 17 years, I very much know that the REAL love story is what comes next and figuring out the ups and downs life brings together. As such, I really loved Amelia and Spencer's story. There's nothing like being forced on an RV trip to bring two people back together, right? It certainly led to some laugh out loud moments along the way! But more than that, I enjoyed seeing the two of them remember why they fell in love in the first place. I am always a fan of meddling relatives, but I have to say that Aunt Hattie takes that to the next level, sending them on a scavenger hunt in an RV... from beyond the grave! And I absolutely loved every single second of it! If you're looking for a fun holiday romance with a road trip adventure and a second chance at love, you'll definitely want to check this one out for yourself. 

The Art of Falling in Love with the Movie Star (Again) is a closed-door romance with kisses only and no language.
