A Look at a Book

Hollywood Lied

Angela Tynehurst always kept her whole life tightly under control. Her fictional creation Farnsedale might take risks, but Angela did not. Not even a zombie apocalypse could shake Angela’s stability. Then, a handsome man with dark brown eyes knocked on her door and everything changed.

Reviews for Hollywood Lied:

Riveting read. Clearly the author had a crystal ball when this was written. Interesting characters, and some unexpected twists! Really enjoyed this book. – TvR (Amazon)

Wow, gripping novel! Couldn’t put it down. Quite moving. – Patricia (Lulu)

Hollywood Lied is an excellent take on a different type of Zombie, a different kind of lock-down, and the evil humanity can dream up. Engrossing story by Iris Carden! – sunup7670 (Instagram)
