Goodbye Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson

Book Description:  Charley's off to Scotland with her new beau, and Scotty and her dad travel to Maine in search of Scotty's mom. That's not all they're looking for though.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions about faith. Scotty's faced with her bitterness toward Karissa and what it means to live a "Jesusy extraordinary" life. Shouldn't forgiveness play a role in that?
And when Scotty and her dad land on her mother's last known trail, will their questions finally be answered?

My Review:  This is the dramatic conclusion to Scotty Dawn's life!  Lisa Samson does an excellent job of bringing all the loose ends together in this read.  Scotty and her dad, Ezra, go on a road trip to find the truth~is Scotty's mom, Babette, dead or alive?  As the adventure continues, the father/daughter duo have high hopes and truly believe in miracles. 
Then they locate Vince, the mob man who supposedly fell for Babette way back when.  But it soon becomes apparent that Vince and Babette aren't together anymore.  However, Vince seems to be holding some knowledge about Babette from Scotty and her dad.
Deciding to work at an orphanage where she falls in love with a sweet baby.  Enter Monica, who was a victim of abuse before coming to the orphanage for her protection. Re-enter Karissa, the spoiled actress who once was the heart throb of Scotty's best friend Seth.  After receiving a text from Seth, Scotty learns that Karissa is now pregnant.  Scotty feels overwhelmed and somewhat in over her head~what a mess!
Scotty wants Karissa to come and visit the orphanage.  Karissa comes and learns about Christ helping to secure Scotty's faith in God.
Scotty and her dad find the answers they've been seeking and ask God to direct the rest of their lives.
This is read is a fantastic end to the series.  I read all of the books but each book could be read as a stand alone read.  However, to gain the "whole picture" I suggest you read them all.  I truly enjoyed this read!
