Verdict Peterman goes for madcap romance in her debut novel but doesn’t quite hit the mark. Starting awkwardly, it takes a long time to find the frenetic, zany pacing necessary to sell the chaos surrounding Rena. Many of the subplots seem out of place and could have been removed to help keep that pacing at an even level. While there are funny passages (specifically in the novel Rena is writing) and a hot romance, these elements don’t quite make up for the book’s problems.Kellie Tilton, Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks Lib.
