Is life stranger than fiction, or vice versa?
Frankie McNally has found the perfect solution for life’s perplexing problems: as head writer for the daytime soap Lust for Life, she works them out on the air!
Meanwhile, Frankie’s being courted simultaneously by the dashing older man sent in to save the show’s sagging ratings and by the soap’s totally hot leading man. And just when Frankie thinks the plot couldn’t get more complicated, a jewel thief starts copying the show’s storyline-a development that could send the show’s ratings soaring, if it doesn’t get Frankie arrested first…
I admit that I used to be a soap opera addict. I would stay home sick from school and be forced to listen to the soaps on TV because my mom was determined to watch them. They grew on me very quickly. As I became an adult, I still watched them. I would get the kids to school, do the housework, and sit and enjoy my soaps. I even read the Soap Opera Digest weekly. Then I found books again and I recovered from one addiction and started another. Oops!
Well, I will say that this fun chick lit read was entertaining. I liked the characters, even if some of them were dull at times. The witty dialogue was fun and the story moved along okay. If you have watched soap operas you know they can be cheesy at times. Well so can a book about them. I took it in stride though and enjoyed a nice little read by Libby Malin.
Overall a great book for the lighthearted readers and would make great reading when you are sitting on the beach wondering what is happening on your soaps!
Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!
