Blog Tour Review: The Halo Effect

Hello everyone! Welcome to Storm Goddess Book Reviews. As part of a blog tour, I'm reviewing The Halo Effect, by Pamela Crane.  I hope you'll leave a comment and let us know you came by. Enjoy, and happy Wednesday!


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…


REVIEW:  The Halo Effect is a thriller that messes with the readers mind... You never know what's coming, you think you have all the answers until BAM! A new twist occurs and throws every single theory you may have right out the window.

I love stories like that.  The author has created a psychological spin in this riveting thriller that kept my interest. I was a little confused at the start of the story, but quickly became immersed in the pages. Haley is a young woman with big dreams, and she has two very different men in her life. One is bound to make her dreams come true, the other is possibly the man of her dreams.

Until some things begin to go terribly wrong, then no one is sure what's happening. Oh, the spin on this book really caught me off guard. If you're a fan of psychological suspense novels, I recommend The Halo Effect.

Along with shaping quirky characters and plotlines that reflect glimpses of her own life, she enjoys riding her proud Arabian horse—when he lets her.
