Six authors got together in order to write “A Ripple Effect Romance” where the character to a new book is found in the previous book. It is a creative and fun idea.
The first book is Home Matters by Julie N. Ford. It is the story of Olivia, a girl who was told by her mother that she was going to be a star. The day finally does come when the lands the leading role on “Home Matters” (think Love It Or List It) but at the height of her success, she realizes that she is longing for something else. He’s handsome and occasionally walks around with a plunger.
This was a short, fun read (129 pages) — perfect for a lazy day.
According to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous when she can’t even get a decent acting gig?
Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. Even though she has no design training and has never held a power tool, she refuses to let that stop her. She’s confident that her destiny is finally within reach.
When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.
