She Sins at Midnight

“This whirlwind comedy/drama…centers on Lila Montgomery and her high school crush, a hilarious cat fight with a Hollywood starlet and her award-winning romance novel nobody know about. This fun, quick read examines the envies and dissatisfactions in women’s lives, reassuring reader that no one’s life is truly perfect.” –Kirkus Review Lila Montgomery, thirty-two-year-old Hollywood assistant extraordinaire, has a secret. On the outside, she’s a hard-working dedicated employee, a good friend, and a loving daughter. But above all else, she’s been raised to be a lady, which of course is why she’s determined to conceal her secret life. If her straight-laced friends and family back home ever discover that she is really the smashing new author of a steamy romance novel, their disapproval would shame her forever! That’s why Lila has chosen to publish her sexy narrative under the nom de plume, Jasmine Sheath. With her fifteenth high school class reunion on the horizon, Lila finds herself at a crossroads. More than anything she wants to go home and see her childhood friends but is embarrassed that she hasn’t accomplished the things she feels she should have by this time in her life; mainly marriage and children. After another brutal run-in with Melinda Forrester, Oscar nominated actress and client of her boss, Josh Furber, Lila decides that fleeing Hollywood for a month is the best thing for her. Lila packs her bags for her childhood home of Bentley Hills, sure that her friends and family will be the touchstone of normalcy that she so desperately needs. What she doesn’t expect is that Melinda will follow her and a tabloid media circus will ensue! Not only does Lila discover that her home is nothing like she remembers, but she meets and falls in love with the very man that inspired the hero in her novel. She Sins at Midnight is full of laugh out loud hi-jinks that will make you never look at Hollywood the same way again! Author, Whitney Dineen, swears that this novel is based purely on fiction and that any characters bearing any resemblance to any celebrities you know are completely and totally fictitious; even though she spent eighteen years in La La Land, with a celebrity client base for her real job…

  1. Fast paced and fun! This is not normally a genre I read, but was looking for a fun and easy read for a diversion. This book fills the bill. The characters are quirky and well developed, the story line is well put together and I really enjoyed the book within a book concept and the way it all pulled together. All in all, a well crafted, fun book that while a bit over the top in some of the antics, not out of the realm of possibility. Hope there are more to come!!

  2. Hilarious? Uh, no… The story is about a woman in her early 30s who thinks she’s a failure because she has no husband or kids. Ugh! She’s totally focused on how harshly her friends and family will judge her failure. (Teeth gritting). She writes bodice rippers in secret because she doesn’t want her friends and family to know that she is a “pervert” who writes “porn.” Omg! What would they think of her? So maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never been a fan of women who base their self worth on what…

  3. Hilarious – laugh out loud funny! This was a rediculously funny read with tons of laugh out loud moments. Perfect summer/beach read that you will whip through and wish it wasn’t over so soon. Definitely recommend.. enjoy!!
