THE NEXT BEST THING

At 23, Ruth Saunders left her childhood home in Massachusetts and headed west with her seventy-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to make it as a screenwriter. Six years later, she has hit the jackpot: the sitcom she wrote has been green lighted, and Ruthie’s going to be the showrunner.

WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM
By: Claire Cook
From the bestselling author of Must Love Dogs comes an irresistible novel about one woman’s courage to take a leap into the spotlight. Deirdre Griffin’s sometime boyfriend is marrying another woman and her job as a gatekeeper to her high-maintenance, New Age guru brother is less than satisfying. In one impulsive moment, Deirdre uses her brother’s massive online following to get herself voted on as a last-minute Dancing with the Stars replacement. Try as she might, she can’t undo what she’s done, but maybe Dancing with the Stars is just what she needs to get a life all her own.
