    A book written by Lauri Robinson is pretty much a guarantee for me that I am going to have an enjoyable read I m pleased to share that Baby on His Hollywood Doorstep wasn t a disappointment In fact, I m excited that it is book one in the series Brides of the Roaring Twenties I don t know why I count but this happens to be my seventh Lauri Robinson book.Baby on His Hollywood Doorstep was an excellent introduction to a new series I considered the plot and setting to be rather unique and it the A book written by Lauri Robinson is pretty much a guarantee for me that I am going to have an enjoyable read I m pleased to share that Baby on His Hollywood Doorstep wasn t a disappointment In fact, I m excited that it is book one in the series Brides of the Roaring Twenties I don t know why I count but this happens to be my seventh Lauri Robinson book.Baby on His Hollywood Doorstep was an excellent introduction to a new series I considered the plot and setting to be rather unique and it therefore piqued my interest to want to read the next one.Another reason I enjoyed this is because of the cast of characters I developed a kinship with each one Helen, the heroine, was born into a life that she had no choice in the matter As life typically goes, there are often turns of events that we have no control over We all have the choice to let it define us or not Helen struggled with the cards life dealt her It was heartwarming to read how she chose to rise above it It happens, of course, with the help of others, mainly the hero, Jack, and as expected Jack had his life struggles too, but together they became a united force.I truly loved this book and have no qualms recommending it However, I have one bone to pick Without giving any spoilers, I felt that there is a scene omitted If so, it s one I would have preferred to have been in on because Helen has a rather significant meeting conversation with a significant person and I was not privy to it and I felt I should have been I learned of it and heard what was said after the fact because she told Jack Prior to this meeting there was a previous confrontation with this particular person where things were said that were pivotal to the plot There was an agreement and, well I can t say any other than I would have liked to have heard her and this particular person have this second conversation Perhaps it was done on purpose so that I would feel the same anger as Jack did when he learned what Helen had done behind his back He forgave her faster than I did Perhaps if I was in on the conversation then I would have beenforgiving I kind of understand her reasoning but I didn t like feeling left out That s the only major hiccup I experienced while reading this story.I was entranced from beginning to end and was genuinely entertained I m thrilled that I already have the next book sitting next to me waiting to be read I encourage others to join me in experiencing this new reading adventure, starting with Baby on His Hollywood Doorstep The future for this series looks promising

    This started out strong but ended up being absolutely awful Bland storytelling, wallpaper history with blatant errors, uneven plot pacing, tepid romance, melodrama out the wazoo Helen acted TSTL in every moment of crisis and a champion conclusion jumper For all that Jack goes on about the Hollywood morality code, this forced proximity trope would never have happened in real life, and thus, these characters who have nothing in common would ve never fallen in love.The next pairing in the series This started out strong but ended up being absolutely awful Bland storytelling, wallpaper history with blatant errors, uneven plot pacing, tepid romance, melodrama out the wazoo Helen acted TSTL in every moment of crisis and a champion conclusion jumper For all that Jack goes on about the Hollywood morality code, this forced proximity trope would never have happened in real life, and thus, these characters who have nothing in common would ve never fallen in love.The next pairing in the series was not only clumsily foreshadowed, but their ending was in this book, too, so what is the point in continuing with the series A terrible disappointment, because I m always on the lookout for stories set in the 1920s and the early age of motion pictures
