My Own Personal Soap Opera by Libby Malin

Product Description

Is life stranger than fiction, or vice versa?

Frankie McNally has found the perfect solution for life's perplexing problems: as head writer for the daytime soap Lust for Life, she works them out on the air!
Meanwhile, Frankie's being courted simultaneously by the dashing older man sent in to save the show's sagging ratings and by the soap's totally hot leading man. And just when Frankie thinks the plot couldn't get more complicated, a jewel thief starts copying the show's storyline-a development that could send the show's ratings soaring, if it doesn't get Frankie arrested first...
In her signature blending of the hilarious with the poignant, Libby Malin's latest light-hearted novel combines the best of life and of fiction into an entertaining and incredibly satisfying read.

I have to admit I thought the whole book was pretty hilarious.  The opening scene of Frankie talking on her cell phone to her mother describing what the characters in her soap opera Lust For Life would possibly do and the reactions of those around her are priceless!  This is definitely a great summer read.
