November 17th, WOW pick..
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of my favorite authors and I am
glad to see she has a new title coming out soon.
So I chose this for my "Waiting on Wednesday" pick for the meme at Jill's blog. Can't wait to see what the other bloggers have chosen!
Call Me Irresistible
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Morrow, $25.99 (400p) ISBN 978-0-06-135152-5
Phillips crafts a laugh-out-loud and romantic story with panache that mostly makes up for some gaping plot holes. Onetime PGA star and smalltown mayor Ted Beaudine (met in 2005's Fancy Pants) is about to marry Lucy Jorik, the daughter of a former president, when she's persuaded to break it off by her best friend, Meg Koranda (2008's Glitter Baby), the aimless daughter of Hollywood royalty. Everyone in Wynette, Tex., loves Ted, but Meg feels Lucy deserves a passionate partner, not a god of self-control. After the disaster of calling off the wedding at the last minute, Meg's parents cut her off, stranding her in the hostile town. As Meg finds her own path and helps Ted discover his heart, the townspeople stoutly (and hilariously) defend their golden boy. However, some readers may not appreciate that Meg's good deed is punished so often and severely en route to happiness. (Jan.)
