Mission Hollywood

  • By Michelle Keener
Product Description

A Hollywood bad boy. A pastor's daughter.

What could possibly go wrong?

Movie star Ben Prescott arrives back in Hollywood after causing a scandal with his ex-girlfriend in Rome

Chased through the airport by paparazzi, he jumps into a limo hoping for a quick getaway. Instead he finds Lily Shaw, a pastor's daughter and preschool teacher. When the paparazzi capture a photo of the two of them together, Ben's agent demands that he do whatever it takes to keep the story from hitting the gossip pages . . . even volunteer to work at Lily's church.

Sparks fly as the movie star and the pastor's daughter work side by side. When Lily accompanies Ben to the premiere of his latest movie, Hollywood takes notice. Under intense media scrutiny and pressure from the movie industry, Ben must risk his career to follow his heart, but Lily wants the one thing he doesn't have, faith. Mission Hollywood is an inspirational story about love, faith, and second chances.


"With wit and gentle humor, Michelle Keener whisks readers from the glamour, flashing lights, and empty promises of Hollywood to the beautiful truth of God's grace. Her emotionally-engaging, relatable characters captured my heart from the first page. This tender story of love despite the odds and faith during life's difficulties will be a sure hit for fans of inspirational romance."

--Kellie M. Parker, 2018 Daphne du Maurier winner

"Mission Hollywood is my favorite kind of contemporary fiction, the real sort. Keener avoids the pitfalls of Christian romance and creates relatable characters with flaws intact and gives them the room to grow in their faith through their struggles. You will definitely fall in love with Ben and root for him and Lily to get their happily-ever-after. With a fast-paced plot, the story keeps you hooked, turning the page to see what happens next."

--Christa MacDonald, Author of The Broken Trail, 2017 ACFW Carol Award finalist

"A romantic tale that truly deserves the label 'Inspirational.' Ever the skeptic, I worried that not all the characters would be willing to change or grow but Mission Hollywood proved me wrong, illustrating the transformative power of faith. A charming and thoughtful read to spend the weekend with."

--Allison Pearl, Author of Glazed Suspicion

"Michelle Keener's novel could be classified as rom-com, however, there is a depth to her characters that goes beyond quirky and cute. It's like pulling up to a drive-in restaurant and expecting your average burger and fries, but instead, you are served Mahi-Mahi on a platter, with arugula salad on the side. Movie star Ben Prescott and pastor's daughter Lily Shaw are about as opposite as you can get in life situations. Keener draws them in slowly, playing the line like an angler. She plays the tension until the reader is in exquisite agony, wondering, 'Will these two get together?' Along the way, Lily's sibling is the type of protective big brother I always wished for as a child. With a believable villain (Ben's agent) to add tension to the mix, Mission Hollywood accomplishes what, no doubt, Keener intended; to illustrate the patience of God when He seeks us. The perfect quote for character Ben Prescott would be "And so the great Angler played His fish and I never dreamed that the hook was in my tongue."C.S.Lewis. I highly recommend this novel."
