You Never Know When The Right Guy Will Come Along. . .

At least Ana Jacobs has a sense of humor. Between the constant struggle with her incredible shrinking wardrobe and her ever-expanding waistline, her boss the Big Weasel, and her current unrequited love, she needs every laugh she can get. Especially when it comes to Jason Hess. He's the gorgeous, green-eyed reason she joined the improv comedy group Iron Pyrits--and he's also one of her six housemates.

Jason is everything Ana has always wanted in a man--he's sweet, responsible, funny, and beautiful to look at. In fact, whenever she does, the familiar zing inside seems to prove that he's the one. But getting him to fall for her hasn't been easy. Is it her size? Her nerves onstage? Or has she missed something that's been right in front of her all along? Maybe the zing factor isn't the most important thing. Maybe the kind of love that jumps out when you're least expecting it is. . .

One of my beefs with a lot of fictional characters is that they're either so perfect you can't relate to them, or so unlikeable all you want to do is kill them off yourself. I want to hang out with these people - they've fun AND funny, and supportive of each other, each character has a distinct voice and there's conflict and tension without anyone having to be a victim. A great, fun read - bravo, Theresa! I'll definitely be reading more of your work.

I really LOVED Theresa Alan¿s first novel, Who You Know. Parts of it were literally fall-off-the-couch with laughter funny, and other parts were really heart-wrenching. Theresa¿s second novel proves that her first wasn¿t a fluke. She can really spin a good story. There were many, many funny bits in the book, but in a way it¿s actually a more serious look at how tough it is to deal with jealousy over professional success, money, the usual stuff. It¿s hard to make sketch comedy seem funny on paper because so much of that sort of comedy relies on facial expressions and physical humor. But Theresa does a great job of drawing complex characters whose motivations for success become more and more clear the deeper you get to know them. If you are looking for a story that is just plain fun and well written, I don¿t think you¿ll be disappointed with Spur of the Moment.

In Denver, twenty-something, Ana belongs to a six person improvisation group, the Iron Pyrits. Ana likes her fellow troupe members and in many ways nurtures the others. She especially suffers from the unrequitedly love of Jason of who she met six years ago in college, but also considers Scott as a possible suitor. Ana worries about her best friend and all around nice gal Maren, who gets herself into too many abusive relationships. She encourages Chelsey (the only member not a roommate) that an interracial relationship is fine if love is the common denominator. Finally, there is Ramiro who has dad troubles so he needs a little mothering without his knowing it. This is her family, but each has decisions to make involving their future that could break up the troupe and end their friendships.---- Though the story is told mostly from the perspective of Ana, the other five key players come across as real people also (not and easy chore to achieve ¿ kudos to Theresa Alan for accomplishing this feat). The sensitivities of Ana and the uniqueness of each member of the troupe as she perceives them make for a solid character study with overtones of a family drama and chick lit tale. Though some grunge seems unnecessary, readers will appreciate this SPUR OF THE MOMENT insightful look at six fine protagonists through the eyes of awesome Ana.---- Harriet Klausner
