Lights, Camera, Action is the first book in the Paranormal Talent Agency Series by Heather Silvio. It is a delightfully fun paranormal mystery- a ‘who-dunnit’, with romance, murder, secrets, intrigue, danger, discoveries, and a good dose of the supernatural.
This is my first read by Ms. Silvio, so not knowing what to really expect I let the cover and the blurb sway me. I was between books and unsure what I wanted to read next, so when this book/series showed up on my feed I grabbed them

Set among the back drop of Las Vegas it will keep you hooked trying to figure out the culprit, with enough to keep you really guessing but not enough that you get lost.

So I am a self proclaimed non paranormal reader, but lately it seems I’m reading more and more of this genre and some are ok, and some are completely awesome...like this one. This was so much fun to read, it felt like a mixture of many different things and rom com kept coming to mind, which is one of my favorite genres.

This was such a wonderful read! I definitely had some preconceived ideas about what I thought this story would be about and I’m so glad I was wrong! It really was a fantastic book!

That spot light looks so bright and beautiful. Until you get under it and you see all the blemishes and cracks. That’s what I see whenever I hear someone saying they want to live the dream. As a child those lights are mesmerizing. Even the people that are helping you get to that dream are not what they seem. The author wanted you to see the good and the ugly in this story.

Lights, Camera, Action is the first book in the Paranormal Talent Agency series. It can be read as a standalone, even though there is a piece of the story that isn’t completely wrapped up.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, but it turned out to be an amusing read. Even though there is a murderer on the loose, the way the story is written makes it a bit lighter than you would expect. I adored the Alex character. I think I would have made him stew a little bit more than Catherine did

Catherine Rodham works for a talent agency in NYC, but is asked to open up a branch in Las Vegas. The new set-up does great, but she meets a bunch of strange people and soon after her arrival a series of unexplainable deaths happen. All women are blond, blue-eyed and actresses in their 20s. Together with Alex, one of her clients, but also so much more..., she tries to find out who is behind the killings.
Fun and entertaining, the story is the beginning of a series, mixing cozy and paranormal.

This is a great addition to the paranormal genre. It was everything I expected it to be, cute, entertaining and just different enough that I didn't feel as though I was reading a book I have read several times before. This being the first book of the series, did a great job setting me up for what I imagine will be a great joy ride. As a big fan of this genre I fully appreciate that writers are expanding the supernatural community and making themselves stand out, which I don't think is too easy. ...more

Our heroine moves to Las Vegas and discovers the paranormal world while investigating a series of murders.

This is a sweet little mystery with a talent agency as the background. The story is well written and pretty face paced, having a lot to accomplish in a short period of time. It is quite effective at establishing the main characters and setting for what looks to be an ongoing series. Which is fine because I really enjoyed the sense of humor and the fun characters in the story. I look forward

For me I loved that this book was overly complicated. It was a great simple “who-dunnit” story. It felt like recently all I have read are books with complex stories so it was brilliantly refreshing to be able to pick this book up and lose myself for a few hours in these characters and the story.

Any book that takes me behind the scenes of the entertainment industry is an automatic ‘must read’ for me. Give me romance, the paranormal, and a mystery along with the bright lights and I am even more intrigued. Catherine’s story is a quick, light read that introduces us to the paranormals of Las Vegas and the Peterson Talent Agency that represents so many of them. This book was a lot of fun to read and I’m sure the rest of the series will be too. I’m already looking forward to the release date ...more

I enjoyed this whodunnit story. This is a story about Catherine. She just moved to Vegas to run the talent agency she has been promoted too. What will happen when her biggest client is accused of murder? Now she questions who she can trust? She is a strong, determined character that makes the story for me. I enjoyed how creative this was and how it had me laughing and waiting to see what would happen next. Plus it has a paranormal twist to it that was great, recommend reading this book.

A fun paranormal mystery that is is also a sweet romance. I believe that if this didn't have the paranormal element, it could definitely be classified as a cozy mystery

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION is a shorter story that has twists and turns along the way. The female protagonist is someone I would want to be friends with.

This is a great start to what I anticipate will be a fun series. I would recommend this book to book clubs and knitting circles alike.
