I was skeptical when I picked this book up at a library sale but I am glad I read it. It was quirky but fun to get into. You rooted for Mike all the way, knowing she could make it through. I passed it on to friends and they have also enjoyed it. Glad I picked it up.

I picked up "Right Before Your Eyes" about a year ago, and I was pleased to see that Shanman added another title. I thoroughly enjoyed "Right Before Your Eyes" and I think that "Everything Nice" is equally as good. I enjoyed the complexities of Mike and Gerry. I thought it had wonderful characters particularly Mike's character development was lovely. However, it seemed to me that Shanman used similar character types in both her novels, I would have liked to see new character types. For instance I saw similarities between Cheryl in this novel and the wedding crazed bride in "Right Before Your Eyes" (I'm sorry the name is escaping me).
But looking solely at this novel, I thought it was strong, interesting, and well written. It had wit, humor, romance, complex characters, and conflict. I thought the relationship between Mike and Deja was very touching as well as the relationship of Mike and her dad. It's a great read; I finished it within twenty four hours because I enjoyed it so much. I look forward to more work by Ellen Shanman since she remains one of my favorite authors.

In Manhattan Michaela 'Mike' Edwards learns the truth when she was fired from her job as a copy writer at A.S. Logan Advertising because she bet on the wrong horse at the office politics race and no one on the other teams wants a woman who cannot relate to other females. No income means no more expensive New York apartment so she moves back in with dear old dad who raised her as a single father and his live in girlfriend. ----------------- Mike obtains work as a substitute life skills teacher to a group of seventh-grade girls. She wants to nuke the curriculum which teaches girls to be domestic girlie girls instead of all you can be. Meanwhile, she and visiting Aussie reporter Gunther seem attracted to one another, but he must soon leave the city of 'oy vey' pessimism to return to home land of sunny optimism.------------ Mike is fabulous as a tomboyish kick butt woman who cannot cope with the inane office females arguing over mascara and lipstick color she prefers to be one of the guys. The story line is fast-paced as she struggles with earning money, residing in the land of barbarians (Brooklyn), teaching girls to cook and sew, and dealing with Gunther who has turned her life upside down. Fans will enjoy Ellen Shanman¿s fine chick lit character study as the heroine makes EVERYTHING NICE, RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES.--------------- Harriet Klausner
