    At 23, Ruth Saunders headed west with her 70-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to be hired as a television writer. Four years later, she's hit the jackpot when she gets The Call: the sitcom she wrote, The Next Big Thing, has gotten the green light, and Ruthie's going to be the show-runner. But her dreams of Hollywood happiness are threatened by demanding actors, number-crunching executives, an unrequited crush on a boss, and her grandmother's impending nuptials.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I expected more especially as I read the prequel Swim!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Moved along faster in some parts and slowed down in others!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine!


    Do you think The Next Best Thing needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Don't know! The ending leaves you hangin a little but it is also a very realistic ending.

    Justine Hoffman has made a comfortable life for herself on the island of Friday Harbor. She is the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel, and she has the safe, predictable life she has always wanted. Growing up with her flighty, nomadic mother, Marigold, has instilled in her a deep longing for stability. But in spite of everything Justine has achieved, there is still something missing. Love. And after years of waiting and dreaming, she is willing to do whatever it takes to change her destiny.

    The unrelenting cheer in Fool’s Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don’t happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception. An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they’re estranged. She won’t add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother’s best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she’s recruited to stage the Fool’s Gold winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Would you listen to The Last Boyfriend again? Why?

    Yes not only is it a good read but the characters have depth


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the author describes the feelings of old friends.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't but enjoyed listening to a mans voice. From the female characters to Ryder with his deep gruff voice.


    If you could take any character from The Last Boyfriend out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Ryder, I think he has hidden depths under the Mach fascade.
