About The Book:
In her debut psychological thriller, Pamela Crane digs into the depths of one of the most baffling mental disorders, erotomania. In this based-on-truth story, Crane delivers a sensitive, nimble, and stimulating story of an aspiring screenplay writer on a passage to reconcile her desire for love and fame at all costs.
It started with a glance. And ended with a nightmare.
Small-town girl Haley Montgomery meets two men who will change her life forever—the handsome Marc Vincetti whom she falls head-over-heels for, and the big-time Hollywood producer Allen Michaels who has the power to turn her screenplay into a movie and a ticket to a better future. It seems as though life couldn't get any better—until things take a decidedly dark turn when Haley spots Marc with his former high school sweetheart and Allen develops a consuming obsession with her.
As Haley is faced with a choice between love and fame, Marc becomes the target of a stalker and Haley's life is thrown into a tailspin. Suddenly everything she thought she knew about Marc and Allen is completely wrong—and Haley's life will never be the same again…
With its smooth mix of suspense and romanticism, The Halo Effect recalls the juncture where the heart and psyche meet—often not in the same plane of reality. But it is also about an ordinary woman’s determination to grasp love at the risk of everything. It’s a story where the worst of villains have hearts, and self-discovery unmasks the dark side within all of us with the hope it will lead us to live for something beyond ourselves.

This book was a very interesting read. I could never really get my head wrapped around one idea of how it was going before something else happened. By the end of the book it was completely different from how I thought it was going to end! If you enjoy suspense then please look into this book. It was a little hard to get into at first but after that it had me hooked and had me changing my mind a lot. I tend to be able to tell how a book is going to end and I highly enjoyed that this one kept me on the edge of my seat guessing the whole time!! I give this book 4 penguins!!
