Today I am so excited to be reviewing The Stars Among Us by Sanja S. Jungic.. Thank you to Zoe-Lee from https://zooloosbookdiary.co.uk/zooloos-blog-tours for organising this tour. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
Nora is as shocked as her friends and family when she quits a perfectly good job to become an extra in a Hollywood movie being filmed in Dubrovnik. She hopes it will help her move on from a painful break-up and give her breathing space to find out what she wants to do with her life.
To Nora’s delight she discovers that she loves every minute in her new “temporary” career. It doesn’t hurt either that the handsome assistant director, Ivor, takes more than a passing interest in her. But then events take a dramatic and unforeseen turn when Lucas Winter, world-famous actor and Nora’s teenage heartthrob, unexpectedly arrives on set…
The Stars Among Us is inspired by the author’s real-life experience of being an extra on the set of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
The Stars Among Us is such a cute and light-hearted romance which is perfect for escaping with on those days when you just want to do nothing but read and get lost in a book.
I love that it is set in Croatia as this is a setting I often come across and I know from a short visit there it is beautiful.
Nora is a cute character although I really felt worried for her when she gave up her job etc. for a chance to be an extra on the show. I loved her spirit of adventure and her gutsy move and was really excited for her when she met her teen crush Lucas – I mean, who wouldn’t love to do that! The trope ‘will they? won’t they?’ and am always excited for the outcome. There was also the added question mark over Nora’s relationship with Ivor and how that would go which added to the excitement.
An enjoyable and feelgood novel with a superb setting and a great weekend ‘getaway’.
