After filling in at the last minute for a colleague on Montana's most popular morning talk show, psychiatrist Molly Jameson's life undergoes some radical changes. On the plus side, she meets the handsome, talented, and charming host and news anchor, Chandler Landry. (Verrrry nice.) On the downside, she has apparently attracted the interest of a deranged murderer.
To be honest, I found the mystery in this book to be confusing and, ultimately, uninspiring. But it serves as an acceptable vehicle to throw Molly and Chandler together in stressful situations. Molly and Chandler are interesting characters separately and have great chemistry together, so the weak mystery is not that big a deal. In addition to the hero/heroine, another big plus in the book is the relationship between the Landry brothers. The good-natured ribbing is both funny and so typical of a large family. Make no mistake, tho, these brothers are fiercely loyal and protective of one another. The author does a good job of mixing humor, danger, and intensity. (Look for an amusing scene w/ Molly and her germ-a-phobic office neighbor. The poor guy will definitely need therapy, but not from Molly.)
This short review doesn't do Film at Eleven justice, but it's a book well worth reading either as a stand alone or as part of the Landry Brothers series.

**Note: I know I can be overly fussy, but Harlequin needs to do a better job w/ typos. This book had so many, I finally got out a pencil and started underlining them just for my satisfaction. Typos can be very jarring and disruptive to the flow of the story. But I did have to laugh when, on the same page as a reference to the mother "load" (rather than lode), law enforcement officers were repeatedly referred to as "troupers" (rather than troopers).**
