When we last left almost fourteen-year-old Jessica Ortiz in BACKSTAGE PASS, she'd just saved the day by catching the freaky stalker who was harassing one of the stars of Two Sisters. Now, the Ortiz family is back, along with a whole new set of problems.
Even though Jess's sister, Eva, is one of the stars of a hot television show, it's hard hanging out on set when your own special jinx seems to bring trouble wherever you go. After the near-misses with a string of Very Special Guest Stars, she was almost banned from the set. This time around, her luck might be changing -- at least when it comes to her on-set problems. Or maybe not.
First, her sister gets skunked -- literally. Then someone tampers with one of the props for a crucial scene. Then an animal guest star goes missing. Oh, sure, the cast, crew, and family members of Two Sisters gets to travel to Mexico to shoot on location, but if Jess can't solve the mystery of who is causing all this trouble, there might not be a show to film in the first place!
Not to mention that her personal life is going haywire. After her almost-boyfriend, Two Sisters star Jeremy Jones, is caught on camera kissing up a storm with co-star Paige, Jess is determined to not let it break her heart. But her sister's creative solution -- create a not-real boyfriend named Heathcliff -- is causing more havoc than it's worth. It's up to Jess to figure out who's behind the trouble on set, get over her televised dumping, and hopefully save the day once again.
ON LOCATION is another fun, fast read in THE HOLLYWOOD SISTERS series. Keep your eyes open for the next installment, CAUGHT ON TAPE, coming in September 2007.
