I have been following Vickie Lester’s blog for a couple years because I love her photographs of classic Hollywood. Slowly, I began to understand that she is a screen writer and an author. Recently, she sent me a signed copy of her book: It’s In His Kiss. I finished reading it today and have already sent her a gushing email about how much I enjoyed it. Don’t read a lot of books? I have posted the link to the audiobook below.
It’s In His Kiss is a Hollywood murder mystery, a page-turner, a love letter to everything that is great and horrible about TinselTown. Her characters are fully developed and lovable, her dialogue is distinct and believable, her word choices are brilliantly clever and her plot is full of blind corners you will never expect. This book has reignited my passion for 21st century fiction. Add into that mix that the author is a genuinely kind and lovely person. Please do yourself a favor and read this book.

Hollywood. The Dream Factory A camera-ready world of fantasy fulfilled, artifice and bone-deep glamour — or a place of dark reality, depthless closets, failed love, false prophets and untimely death. Anne Brown must find where the truth lies. Truth. Lies. It’s in his kiss. Vickie Lester has written the ultimate Hollywood insider murder-mystery with gasp-worthy plot twists and plenty of delicious, naughty moments. It’s In His Kiss roams from the dark underbelly of Palm Springs to the power canyons of Hollywood. Everyone has a secret: once-wealthy moguls, studio executives with double lives, wry East Coast novelists plunged into intrigue, uneasily blended families and a certain church that likes to keep its movie colony types in check. A must read that you won’t want to put down until its final brilliant conclusion.
