Publisher's Summary

Newspaper publisher and world traveler JJ Cavendish continually feels pressured to live up to her "Miracle Girl" nickname. Not many people know she’s living a carefully crafted lie. She may not hide ties to the LGBT community, but she does hide past struggles with addiction.

When the Colorado native is handpicked to take the helm at a dying Denver newspaper, she ends up reconnecting with her long lost love in this contemporary lesbian romance. Only there’s a catch. If JJ fires the most belligerent editor at the paper, she risks losing the love of her life.

Mid-afternoon office romps abound in this romantic comedy while also focusing on what it takes for a newspaper to remain relevant in this age of social media.

Must JJ lose everything in order to gain a life more fully her own?

Meh

I had a hard time getting fully into this book, the narration was fine, it was read in first person and only one persons point of view. I wish they had more backstory on the two main characters. Feels like it ended abruptly... perhaps there will be a sequel

WOW! I LOVED THIS BOOK!

This is the 1st book I've read by this author and it was so much better than expected. Obviously the story line interested me or I wouldn't have purchased the book, but, WOW, I just finished the book and I have a silly grin on my face. I don't always enjoy the romance books where they met many years ago and fell in love but something happened and now they're older and could they fall in love again... but this one was different. Most of this story was in the present tense, but the needed parts from the past were there when needed. I thought it was so well written. I really am impressed. The narrator did an excellent job. I listen to lots of audio books since I am in my car a lot so trust me when I say you won't be disappointed with this book. Now I'm going to shop around for another book by TB Markinson :)

Great narrator! Ups and downs re the story, but...

I was on a roller coaster with this one. In the end, I was glad I purchased it and couldn’t wait to get on to the second book, The Fall Girl. I like that I didn’t always know what was waiting around the corner. It’s not exactly a predictable story. Recommend, especially as a lead in to book 2!!

Life is messy

JJ may be in her 40’s but she clueless about so many things Her and Claire’s lives are messy but so are most people’s. This story speaks the truth about their lives and shows that you can’t run away because it will follow you. JJ finally gets the meaning of One Day at a Time. TJ Richards did an amazing job giving these characters a voice with feelings.

Enjoyable story

I enjoyed this story. I appreciate that they were over 35. The setting was great and the characters were nicely developed and seemed very real. The narrator did a very good job with the voices.

Having lived in Denver I do thing they understated the city 3 it's beautiful surroundings. The story made it come across as if JJ had been transferred to a town with one red light! Denver is gorgeous and full of diversity, culture and a ton of activities to do.

That said, I enjoyed the story very much.

Awesome book and narration!

This book is so awesome that I just bought the second book in the series. I am so happy this book was suggested. Anything narrated by TJ Richards is a win for me. This story, with her narrating, created an audiobook I'll have the pleasure of listening to over and over again.

Great story, Great narration!

I loved this story. I could feed the strong connection between JJ and Claire . I liked that the author allowed the reader /listener to go into through the growth and development of both Claire and JJ . The narration was perfect! It really brought the story to life. Way to go TB Markinson and TJ Richards!!!

A second change

I think everybody can relate to a story about getting a second change, especially when it involves a first love. I really enjoyed the story because of the main characters. JJ has a strong personality and for readers, like me who fancy strong independent women I would certainlly advice to read it.
The chemistry between Claire and JJ felt real, sometimes you want to jump in and give them some advice. On some occasions you can feel their emotions as if they're your own.
I mostly enjoyed the "massage" part.

Ms Markinson did a great job, she wrote not only a romance but a real life story about love, life and emotional feeling, on being true to yourself and not pretending to be a better persoon.
I would highly recommend this story.
