Overview

Twenty-four-year-old Stephanie manages a clothing store and lives with her mother in the townhouse where she grew up. Her life isn't in a rut exactly, but it's not headed where she'd like it to be. At her mother's suggestion, she joins a community choir. Soon she's singing rock songs in four-part harmony and has met a completely new group of people, including Anna Rai, a local TV personality. When Anna's private journal goes missing, she confides in Stephanie that she feels terribly vulnerable. What if the notebook falls into the wrong hands and her secrets are made public? She hints that such revelations could be devastating to her and other public figures. When a blackmailer demands cash in exchange for the notebook, the two women lay a trap to snare the crook. But will Stephanie use or abuse the information she now has?

Editorial Reviews

http://asianamlitfans.livejournal.com/
"Even in this short work, we get to inhabit the quite witty viewpoint of a young woman named Stephanie...Moritsugu's characters are always so wonderfully flawed."
Bookblog of the Bristol Library
"[I] read the first few sentences. That's all it took, and I was hooked. This book was quick and easy to read, but strangely gripping from the first page."
CM Magazine
"Mortisugu's characters are genuine and believable. The reader won't be able to help cheering on the characters in their quest to find the notebook and solve "The Mystery of the Missing Notebook." Even with the book's having an ending too perfect to be true, readers will share the joy of success with Stephanie and Anna. Recommended."

    Fun Easy Read

    The Rapid Reads line from Orca is intended for linguistically challenged adults - as in, it should be simple language with no subplots and good characterization to satisfy an intelligent adult mind.

    I thought And Everything Nice delivered on every level. I was hooked on the plot, found the main character enjoyable to spend time with, and I was flipping pages to figure out who the thief in the choir was.

    Kim Moritsugu is one of my favorite writers - she normally writes literary fiction with a fun chick-lit lilt. I read And Everything Nice because I'm addicted to her books and had read all the others. While I do speak English well enough that I'm not generally drawn to Orca's rapid reads, I was just as hooked on this book as I have been on the rest of Kim's novels.

    If you're looking for a new author and English language is a challenge for you, read And Everything Nice.

    If you're interested in Kim's other books, try Old Flames or The Restoration of Emily.
