Book Review | Melissa Baldwin – Movie Scripts and MadnessMovie Scripts and Madness by Melissa Baldwin
Published by Melissa Baldwin on November 15, 2017
Genres: Cozy Mystery



Kendall Whitaker always longed for a starring role in a movie full of action, adventure, love, and murder. She just never thought she would be living in one.

An aspiring actress, Kendall left her normal life in Phoenix for the bright lights of Hollywood. She hoped taking a job as the assistant to the miserable Marketing Director at Blossom Studios would be her stepping-stone to stardom. When she finally gets her hands on an audition script, she refuses to let anything stand in her way. What she doesn’t expect is the return of her arch nemesis, the attention of a very dashing actor, or finding a dead body.

Before she knows it, Kendall finds herself embroiled in the mysterious events taking over the day-to-day activity at the studio. With each unfortunate incident—including the disappearance of her boss—Kendall is smack dab in the middle of it all and on the radar of the handsome detective in charge of the investigation. Could the answer be hidden in a recently canceled movie, or has the answer been in front of her the entire time?

Someone is set on destroying Blossom Studios, and they will do whatever it takes to succeed. Kendall must solve this mystery to prove her innocence and save her own life.

You guys!!! Y’all know I’m a big fan of Melissa Baldwin—as an author and a person—but I’m not sure if I’ve really shared here how much of a cozy mystery fan I am. That is changing today. I had the absolute honor and pleasure of editing and formatting Melissa’s first cozy mystery novel, MOVIE SCRIPTS AND MADNESS, and am beyond ecstatic to share it with you. The cover is perfect, they storyline is amazing, and even though I’ve now read it at least six times, I’ll probably read it again to just enjoy the story and not think about anything but reading it. I loved living in Kendall’s world for as long as I did. Between the murders, crazy run-ins with Kendall’s teenage nemesis, flourishing and floundering friendships, and sparks of romance—I won’t share my #TeamNewBoyfriend, because spoilers, but send me a message if you want to know—Melissa did a stellar job of keeping the tone light and cozy, and definitely left me with a list of possible suspects until the very end! I’ll definitely be begging Melissa to write another cozy for me soon!
