Definitely wanted more by the end. I thought the characters really gained depth as the story went on and the action sequences were really great.
I'm looking forward to seeing more from this author. Can't wait for the next book really liked Gear next in series should flesh out the characters more. A quintessential tale of misfortune and misadventure, promise and prophecy, Ms.

Self-interest and small deeds forge a reluctant alliance that seems destined to fall apart at the worst moments of which there are plenty , but culminates into a predestined final reckoning between malice and magic.

He is in great shape, living everyday after a certain schedule including daily runs and healthy food. In he was nominated for an Academy Award he never got and since then he is aiming for a great comeback as an actor in Hollywood, more so now as his financial situation has become quite delicate. His career began in the last years of the Golden Era of Hollywood.
Back then, he was acquainted with the stars. A good friend of him was Marylin Monroe and she seems to be the ticket to his comeback over 40 years later where nobody seems to know his name Del Corwyn anymore. Two women are currently playing major roles in his life: Nora Jumelle, the new star in Hollywood and Felicia, a minster. Unfortunately, there are parallels between the life of Marilyn and Nora and Del, reminded of his grief after losing Marylin, is afraid of losing his new friend too.
I loved this book! Right from the first sentence, I was so into it. First of all, I noticed the great writing. John Herrick is a very talented author with a gift: A Beautiful Mess is well plotted, well written and it really drags you into the world of Del and his friends. Moreover, you begin to feel for them and live with them through their difficulties.
I can only warmly recommend reading this book and let you all find out how it all works out for Del and his loved ones, because it is an utterly beautiful story. Now, there nothing left to say except me giving this book one of my very rare 5-star-ratings. Beautiful Mess is a beautiful mess of quirky characters brought together by happenstance in the glitz, hypocrisy, and shallowness of Hollywood.
The right script will come to him any day. With her hippie past and wild days behind her, Felicia Whitby is now a pastor. Tolerant, and nonjudgmental, Felicia is the voice of reason and exhibits the wisdom one would expect from a sixty-eight-year-old.
Financially strapped, Del is forced to downsize and reign in his lifestyle. While going through boxes which had sat untouched for decades, Del finds a letter penned by his late friend, Marilyn Monroe. Because of this, Marilyn Monroe entrusted Del with a screenplay she wrote, Beautiful Mess, to do with as he saw fit. Del immediately sees the screenplay as his ticket back into the spotlight and contacts his agent to brainstorm how they will make it happen.
His hubris and narcissism were overwhelming and annoying. At first, I thought it odd Del had never married, but after those few chapters, it was obvious Del Corwyn was far too self-absorbed to be in a relationship beyond a few days. Or so it would seem. He not only questions his own motives behind publicizing the screenplay but he questions his life. Beautiful Mess is well-written and engaging. Felicia just has a great name! I believe Beautiful Mess would appeal to readers across several genres and I highly recommend it.
I volunteered to read Beautiful Mess as part of a blog tour promotion.
