In this moving collection of thought-provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humor, Union tells astonishingly personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism, and fame. Union tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents.

What's a little arson between friends? Undercover CIA agent Fortune Redding spent her first three weeks in Sinful, Louisiana, dodging insults, makeup advice, guard dogs, bullets, and Deputy Carter Trahan, both professionally and personally. But just when she thinks things are going to settle down in the small bayou town, someone sets her friend Ally's house on fire. Carter, who'd just started pursuing Fortune on a personal basis, goes back into cop mode and admonishes her to stay out of his investigation.

Mystery author Rachel Goldman is getting used to the idea that her fictional creation, Duffy Madison, has somehow taken flesh-and-blood form and is investigating missing person cases not far from where Rachel lives. Wait. No. She's not getting used to it at all, and the presence of this real-life Duffy is making her current manuscript - what's the word? - lousy.

As a movie location scout, picture-perfect is the name of the game. But her last project literally went up in flames, and her career is on the verge of flaming out. Greer has been given one more chance, if she can find the perfect undiscovered beach hideaway for a big-budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town called Cypress Key. There's one motel, a marina, a long stretch of pristine beach and an old fishing pier with a community casino-which will be perfect for the film's explosive climax.

Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless. They’ve been divorced for four years, she’s engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she’s ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she’s been given a second chance.

Well I personally am a huge fan of romantic comedies because they are a break from reality :) This book really delivered in a sweet story, with characters you come to "know, love and/or loathe", and it also delievered that far fetched perfect ending you find in most romantic comedies! I was really shocked with the SURPRISE that was eventually revealed near the end of the story. I look forward to reading other titles by this author.

The overall story was good, a typical love story; boy meets girl, girl likes boy etc. However, I could not get a grasp on the main characters because they "flip flopped" so much during the story. Additionally, the narrator's tone and voice for the main male character caused him to seem cold and harsh. The story line seemed a little rushed and far fetched at the end, which was in contrast to the slow story line throughout the book.

I enjoyed the story line and the characters in this story. As I listened to the character backgrounds and their respective expectations, I could not help but yell, "Truth is relative" "stop blaming" "stop making excuses" "That's so selfish". I enjoyed the very realistic illustrations through words, by which I felt like a fly on the wall instead of just an audience member. I cast characters as I read and in no time, I was viewing this book in film form in my head.
