Sophia Donovan had it all: a beautiful home in the Hollywood Hills, a successful career at a high-profile celebrity magazine, amazing friends – and she was married to one of the hottest Hollywood Directors of their time. Things between her and her husband Marcus weren’t perfect but after 11 years, what marriage was? But if the secrets that lay behind the walls of the Donovan home were ever exposed life would never be the same for anyone. When an unexpected visitor from Sophia’s past shows up, it forces her to come to terms with her suspicions. As she unravels the truth about the people closest to her, it quickly becomes clear that fighting to save her marriage won’t be nearly as important as fighting to save her life.

“A Masterful Hollywood Mystery”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Book Addict
Beyond the Red Carpet is an action-packed, well-written Hollywood mystery, a modern story reminiscent of Harold Robbins’ and Jacqueline Susann’s classics. Sophia is the main character, a compelling protagonist thrown into love and intrigue in a clever, well-drawn plot. The story deftly moves between past and present, tension rises with every chapter, and the ending is a wild ride.
Sophia’s passion for life and love drives the novel, and her relationship with Marcus is spellbinding, a sizzling romance that has expected (and unexpected) ups and downs. Her friendship with Cat is touching and sincere, and their interaction is punctuated with great dialog and humor. Beyond the Red Carpet is a masterful blend of romance, glamor, and intrigue that’s hard to put down, a very satisfying read filled with cliffhangers.
The writing’s great, the characters are brilliant, and the whole story’s a roller coaster ride with unexpected twists and turns. This is Book One in the Hollywood Lies series. I can hardly wait for the second. Highly recommended.
About the Author
When she sat down to plan a murder, Debbra Lynn never imagined it would turn into her first novel. A prolific high-school poet-turned-career woman, Debbra’s dream is to write stories that will entertain, intrigue, and quite frankly, scare her husband of eight years, Robin.
Debbra lives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with her husband Robin and their two fur babies, their cats, Milo and Bailey. She loves spending time with her husband out at the golf course where they have a beautiful fifth wheel which they can call their second home. Golfing, campfires, friends and family is her ideal way to spend her free time – when she’s not plotting revenge, of course. Beyond the Red Carpet, book number one in the three part series, is her first novel followed by the prequel Heart of Stone. Debbra is currently working on the third and final installment of the Hollywood Lies Trilogy.
