Then He Kissed Me
Sheridan has always been there for his sister. He was there when
they were children being raised in a commune by their hippie parents.
He was there when her daughters where born. He was there when she
died. Now he's still there for her, raising her daughters in a loving
Bridger is frustrated. Thirty-two years old and she's done it all.
She's been an actress in low-budget slasher films. She's been the
star of a hit TV show. She's been a mystery writer. She's even been
the model for a video game heroine! Suddenly she realizes that she
doesn't know who she is anymore. She is tired of everyone telling
her what to do and what to eat and how to dress and how to act.
She misses picnics in the park with hot dogs and her dad's homemade
potato salad. She needs to get back to the simple life that she
knew growing up. Maybe then she'll be able to get her head together.
In the middle of a fabulous Fourth of July party for 200 jet-setting
acquaintances, she jumps in her hot pink Mustang and takes off for
first stop is the Ritzy Glitzy Salon to turn her signature blond
hair jet black. Then it's off to The Gaudy Galore for some skintight
clothes. Then outside of Plentiful, Wyoming her car breaks down.
She's rescued by Cole, who tows her into town. Soon she discovers
that her wallet is missing. Needing money to fix her car, she agrees
to temporary employment as Cole's nanny. Little does she know that
he's raising five little girls under the age of seven!
in the same town as the author's previous novel, Stuck on You, this
book reunites us with some of my favorite people: Scarlette, owner
of the local bookstore; Molly, owner of the Misty Moon Saloon; and
of course, the three charter members of the Tuesday Morning Sleuths
Society Mildred - Ida, Mae, and Lillian. Told in Ms. Berg's usual
fun style, this is a great book!
