BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Star Struck by Kathi Oram Peterson


Mercedes Grant is known to the world as Stormy Ryan, action hero. Her movie-star status has led to some unpleasant interactions in the past, and even a few stalkers, but none has ever come close enough to her to seem dangerous—until now. When she receives a death threat on her personal cell phone, she is understandably shaken. Seizing the opportunity to take some time away from the limelight while the police investigate the phone call, Mercedes escapes to her remote cabin near Idaho’s Snake River. She knows it is the perfect place to lie low, but she doesn’t realize how low she’ll actually feel once she arrives. After days of suffering from a cold she just can’t shake, Mercedes visits the town physician, Luke Parker. The handsome doctor, a fan of the stunning celebrity, performs the necessary tests and is devastated at the unexpected diagnosis he must give her. Mercedes is sick—really sick. He knows she can handle crazy fans, but the news he has to give is another story. As Mercedes struggles to come to terms with her new future, she relies on Luke’s support. But neither imagines the disease is not the only danger Mercedes is facing—because just out of view, someone is watching her and is determined to make good on their threat.


This sort of book always intrigues me a bit, because the main character comes from a world so vastly different than my own.  Mercedes comes from a world of fame and fortune and that goes with it both good and bad.  But fame and fortune can't stave off disease and when Mercedes discovers just how sick she really is, it really throws her off.  Luckily, the doctor who gave her the bad news is a nice guy whose willing to support her efforts to adapt to her changing reality.  The addition of a crazed stalker complicates everything to the nth degree.  I can easily recommend this book if you enjoy thoughtful, romantic suspense.
