Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Meg Donohue comes a mystery, a love story, and a mother-daughter tale about two women on a precarious journey to uncover their true selves.

Passionate and funny, radio personality Gail Gideon is a true original. Nine years ago, when Gail's husband announced that he wanted a divorce, her ensuing on-air rant propelled her local radio show into the national spotlight. Now The Gail Gideon Show is beloved by millions of single women who tune in for her advice on the power of self-reinvention.

But fame comes at a price. After all, what does a woman who has staked her career on being single do when she finds herself falling in love? And is the person who is harassing her in increasingly troubling ways a misguided fan or a true danger to Gail and her daughter, Nic?

Fourteen-year-old Nic has always felt that she pales in comparison to her vibrant, outgoing mother. Plagued by a fear of social situations, she is most comfortable at the stable where she spends her afternoons. But when a riding accident lands Nic in the hospital, she awakens from her coma changed. Suddenly she has no fear at all, and her disconcerting behavior lands her in one risky situation after another. And no one, least of all her mother, can guess what she will do next.

Charming but forgettable Fairy tale


This book had potential! It was beautifully written and the characterizations were excellent. However, all of the conflicts were resolved like in a Disney movie. Everything fell neatly into place in seconds. without any great inner transformation or soul searching. If you are in the mood for a cozy story with a happy ending, then this book is for you, but it left me unsatisfied.

Flatline

So sorry...I wanted to like this book, but it was just too sappy and transparent for me. The stalker was pretty evident early on and so didn't have a significant impact on the story - more like a little detail running in the background. Everything about it was not only predictable, it was glaringly obvious. No buildup, no real tension, not even particularly exciting emotions...that's why I have to call it a flatline.

I think the storyline would probably work well for a Hallmark movie; just didn't have enough substance as a novel.
