Kim Carmichael began writing ten years ago when her love of happy endings inspired her to create her own. She has a weakness for bad boys and techno geeks, and married her own computer whiz after he proved he could keep her all her gadgets running. When not writing, she can usually be found slathered in sunscreen trolling Los Angeles and helping top doctors build their practices.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Specter was a successful group, which Erik Renevant was the lead singer for. Erik and his Band had been in an accident, and this destroyed them both. From that point on, Erik chose to live in darkness. He refused to be seen again, he hid in the shadows, and never let anyone see him again.
Everyone longs for a chance at the spotlight, especially Christine Day. Christine dreams of entering the ‘Stage of Stars’ the latest hit reality competition, entering contests, traveling, and doing everything she can to get her chance.
One day, Christine receives her big break in becoming the backup singer for an unknown band. Christine ends up wandering into Eriks world, and he hears her voice. From that moment on, he recognizes perfection, and knows she is destined for great things.
Furthermore, Erik never imagined, that Christine and her voice, would cause him to desire to make him end his own façade, and lead him back into the star light.
There was just something about Christine, her voice, and music. The façade could no longer be kept in the dark…
Façade is said to be inspired by the ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and is a combination of all the different incarnations.
I give ‘Façade’ five stars, and found it to be quite entertaining, and I truly enjoyed the fact that Christine inspired Erik enough to draw him out of the shadows. People need not live in shame of whom and what they are. I totally loved this story from the get go, and felt like ‘Façade’ was everything I wanted and more. This was an extremely well written book, and it truly will make you think about how people feel about how we look, and how we know everyone around us looks at, and judges us. Kim Carmichael will always pull you in with her writing, she makes you feel like you are right there with her, as she is writing her stories. She tells everything so clearly that you always can visually see and feel everything. A beautiful five star read you will want to read over and over again.
