Maggie Moore has been put on notice: Find a new place to live and a life for that matter.
Spurred on by her mom’s ultimatum, Maggie sets out to fulfill her dream of Life & Style Stardom, a la Martha Stewart. After a colossal failure on her first assignment, which has nothing to do with crafting or curtains by the by, she finds herself fighting to save her career.
Far from home, and struggling with the aftermath of a family death, Maggie’s already hard fought lifelong battle with Murphy, and his pride-stealing Laws, kicks into high gear. Her enigmatic world-renowned photo journalist currently sporting a chip-the-size-of-Mount-Rainier on his shoulder might have something to do with it.
Determined to succeed despite numerous bumps along the way, Maggie throws herself – quite literally – into the heart of her assignments as she travels across the country, unlocking the oddities of various obscure sporting events and surviving the World’s Most Difficult Partnership along the way.
OK, I love Maggie almost as much as I loved Izzy (another sassy heroine from Mz. Graves). This gal is smart, but in a very naive way, and poor Maggie is terribly clumsy…but she’s got an eye for a good story and keeps running into this weirdo with a beardo. Though a light read on the surface, this was a many layered morsel of a set, with entertaining moments sprinkled with some more serious ones, and never really letting you go very long with out falling out of your chair laughing. I’d read This Ship Has Sunk a while ago, and greatly enjoyed it, so of course I was happy to have more of the story. The end definitely leaves a few questions, so I’m hoping that there will be another side here, but I’m still satisfied with the collection as is. This is a great read for those looking for a change of pace from dark fantasy reads, too.
ABOUT MICHELLE GRAVES
Michelle Graves is a self-proclaimed nomad, moving every two to three years with her husband the Army man, her beautiful daughter, and a fat tailless cat named Torri. When she is not writing away trying to purge her mind of yapping characters she can be found entertaining her daughter, attempting to craft (whilst trying not to injure herself with the glue gun), baking yummy treats, or reading. She admits to having a restless spirit and forces her family to go out on adventures whenever possible. They lovingly play along.
