How to Stay: A Hollywood Lights Novella by Katie Rose Guest Pryal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Katie Rose Guest Pryal has created a witty novella that explores the depths of familial and romantic relationships. Protagonist Miranda, a paralegal, has no time for the new lawyer, Mattias, hired by her parent’s law firm. She puts on a hilarious act of servitude around him until he realizes who she is. Instead of being angry with her, he offers her glimpses into his personal life, and allows her an escape in sharing his dog, as she is an avid animal lover whose living situation does not allow for pets. Miranda is a devoted daughter who shields her sibling from the fact that their mother is exhibiting bizarre behavior and their father is doing nothing to seek treatment for her. Miranda is a multifaceted character that the reader will fall in love with. Mattias is a more sensitive soul, and just what Miranda needs. I can’t wait to read more about their evolving relationship in Chasing Chaos: A Hollywood Lights Novel.
