Review: Hiding in the Spotlight by @Karenbbooth

Alex Halford’s rock-star husband Glenn steals away in the middle of the night, leaving her with their two boys, a mountain of debt, and one person to turn to—his lifelong friend and bandmate David Callahan. David helps Alex pick up the pieces of her shattered life, happy to have any time with the woman he’s loved for seventeen years. Every moment with her is ripe with opportunity, and every last idea running through his mind would destroy his brotherly bond with Glenn. 

Out from under Glenn’s thumb, Alex can see the person she was before marriage, finding feelings for David she thought she’d left behind in high school. A single kiss and the floodgates open, giving her new hopes of happiness. But when David and Glenn’s band has a chance to be back on top again, David must convince Glenn to return. With every passing day, success comes closer, Glenn’s ego inflates, and David and Alex find it more difficult to hide. One misstep and the secret comes out, forcing David to choose between his life’s work and the woman he doesn’t want to leave behind. 


I always get so excited when i get an email from Karen Booth telling me she has a new book coming out an would i like to review it. I so love her books especially her Rockstars . Her books are like watching an episode of where are they now for your favourite band as a teen. 

Hiding in the Spotlight is no exception. I loved watching the relationship between Alex and David develop it felt very natural and perfect. I must admit I wasn't expecting the book to finish the way it did but i loved it. Definitely pick this one up, it is well worth the read.

Overall i give this 5 out of 5

Author bio:

Karen Booth is a Midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on 80s music, Judy Blume, and the films of John Hughes. An early preoccupation with rock 'n' roll led her to spend her twenties working her way from intern to executive in the music industry. Several of her books revolve around the world of backstage passes and band dynamics.

When she's not creating fictional musicians, she's listening to everything from Otis Redding to Duran Duran to Tokyo Police Club with her kids, honing her Southern cooking skills (she makes some mean collards), or sweet-talking her astoundingly supportive husband into whipping up a batch of cocktails.
