Hollywood Headlines Mysteries Boxed Set (Books 1-3) [NOOK Book].
by Gemma Halliday

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/holl...adlines+series

Overview
Boxed set of three Hollywood Headlines Mysteries novels from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Gemma Halliday, including:

HOLLYWOOD SCANDALS
Tina Bender is the gossip columnist at the infamous L.A. Informer tabloid. She knows everything about everyone who's anyone. And she's not afraid to print it. That is, until she receives a threatening note, promising, "If you don't stop writing about me, you're dead." Teaming with a built bodyguard, a bubbly blonde, and an alcoholic obituary writer, Tina sets out to uncover just which juicy piece of Hollywood gossip is worth killing over.

HOLLYWOOD SECRETS
Cameron Dakota is the L.A. Informer's staff photographer and paparazzi extraordinaire. Her latest subject is Trace Brody, top-shelf actor and half of America's favorite Hollywood couple. Trace is about to get married in a blow-out wedding, and Cams editor, Felix Dunn (from the High Heels Mysteries), has assigned her to get the first shots of the bride and groom. But when Cam takes pictures of what looks like Trace being threatened at gunpoint, she suddenly finds herself smack in the middle of a scandal more sensational than even she could invent. On the run, under fire, and in serious danger of falling in love with one leading man, Cam must get to the bottom of this story... before she becomes tomorrow's headline.

HOLLYWOOD CONFESSIONS
Allie Quick has high aspirations - much higher than reporting on the latest celebrity gossip for the L.A. Informer, Hollywood's most notorious tabloid. But if she's going to join the ranks of the real reporters, she's going to need a headline worthy story under her belt. Which is just what she gets when the producer of the trashiest reality shows on TV winds up murdered, and Allie convinces her editor, Felix Dunn, that this story has her name written all over it. Between an aging dance-off judge, a family with sextuplets and triplets, and the star of a little person dating show, Allie has no shortage of reality stars to question. But when she finds herself falling for her prime suspect, Allie's relationship with her editor is suddenly on the rocks, and her life is in danger. This is one deadline Allie can't afford to miss!

Here it is from Amazon, too:

Price is one penny less than a buck. (Anyone need a calculator?)

Good price. Last month she gave them away individually. So if you missed out on that you can grab the set for a good price. She is a former Dorchester Publisher author that went indie after having problems with them. I'm currently reading her Spying in High Heels series.

I really loved the Spying in High Heels series. Made me laugh a lot. Hope you are enjoying it.

The original source for this deal seems to be Smashwords, where apparently it's deep-discounted as part of the Read an E-Book Week sale: direct linkage to the SW version of Hollywood Headlines Mysteries Boxed Set (Books 1-3)

I moderately enjoyed Spying in High Heels which I got as a freebie (still free @ Smashwords, by the way), and I'm sympathetic to Halliday over the Dorchester situation, even though I'm not too keen on her yanking existing series to KDP Select-ivize, which apparently kills re-downloading of purchased books in several stores.

I think I'll be picking up this one to show support for both the author and MultiFormat DRM-free sales via Smashwords (and I'll be very sure to back up multiple copies of my purchase in various locations, just in case), even though I have all the individual books from the KDP Select freebie-ization.

Only just started it but I'll let you know. I've just finished the Stephanie Plum's series so I'm looking everywhere for similar type books and the High Heels series was recommended to me because I love Plum!

When I was looking at some Lois Greiman/Chrissy McMullen mysteries, several of the Gemma Halliday books showed up in the "other people who bought this book also bought these" recommendations. So going in reverse, the Lois Greiman mysteries might be another similar series. I think they taught me that in math too many years ago, if a=b then b=a or some such thing.

A couple of the later ones in the series are in Smashwords REW sale, which I think ends today (March 10). I've got some links in my post #5 in this thread:
