      This review was written for Director's Cut, The: A Novel - eBook.
      I really enjoyed the Backstage Pass series by Janice Thompson, and this third instalment is a fitting conclusion to the series. It is lovely to catch up on what the stars of the other books in the series are doing down the track a bit. We met Stars Collide director Tia Morales in the other books, but Director's Cut focusses on her story. She likes to have everything under control and orderly, but learns that it is not always possible. When it comes to love and handsome camera operator, Jason Harris, she learns to let go and let God have control, and it is so much fun to watch the process. Read this fun book and find out for yourself.

      I have enjoyed reading the Backstage Pass Series but a little sorry to see it end. I look forward to reading other novels by Janice Thompson, however. Her light-hearted romances always seem, at the core, to teach some valuable lessons we can all apply to our lives.

      In this story, The Director's Cut, we are placed right square in the middle of the day to action on the set of a sitcom, with all its twists and turns, both real and dramatized.

      Tia, the main character, as well as some of the other characters, learn valuable lessons on what is most important in life and where we need to place the most energy.

      As always, Mrs. Thompson's writing is able to portray some real life issues from a light-hearted comedic view. Very enjoyable indeed!

      I like seeing behind the scenes in Hollywood. That setting has always fascinated me. Janice has been there. She's been a screenwriter. So reading about her characters gives us an inside glimpse. Her characters are fun to watch, and she carries off an ensemble cast very well.

      This is a light read, as many rom coms (romantic comedies) are. The perfect escape. However, I felt the pace moved slowly as did the romance. I did like how the story is classified as a romance, but is written entirely in first person. She's done this before in this series, and I like it. She makes it work.

      I liked the theme of control—the fact that control is a myth, that we can't really control every element of our lives. The heroine is the director of a sitcom, but she can't control (direct) her own life. Her family is out of control. Her love life isn't all she wants it to be. She'll have to learn that God alone is in control. A great theme.

      The story has relatable themes without bearing the heaviness of some stories. If you enjoy a light read, an escape, you'll appreciate this book.

      An entertaining read about the entertainment industry!

      Tia Morales is the director of the Golden Globe winning hit TV sitcom, Stars Collide. Tia stuggles to hold on to her sanity while trying to stay strong and take care of everything all by herself. With a hit TV show comes...a lot of pressure! Will Tia be able to keep her head above water, with all the craziness going on around her?

      I'm gonna be honest it took me awhile to get hooked onto this book, longer than I would have liked, somewhere around page 100. But after that, the book really took off and I became invested in the characters and the pages didn't stop turning until the last page was turned down.

      I think that one of my favorite characters was Lenora, who was just the sweetest old lady, who marched to the beat of her own drum, and had fun even though she was losing her memory.

      I liked the interwoven humor, and I really liked the larger than life characters. Even though I hadn't read the other books in the series I was able to enjoy it, though that might have been why I didn't jump on right away. But this was just overall a fun book, that was just a blast to read!

      I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. Thanks!

      What a fabulous book! The Director's Cut is the 3rd book in a series called "Backstage Pass". Janice is a wonderful writer! Love the character's Tia and Jason! what a wonderful relationship they have! and who can not have a heart for precious Lenora! It is so good to read a story of Christian people in Hollywood!
