But then Daphne meets sexy, successful writer/ producer Jonathan Hill when he comes to the museum for inspiration.

This book sounded good on the back cover, but never lived up to its potential. The characters were never developed completely so that you could really bond with them. You never see the real romance of the story. I read it in about 3 days because I kept hoping I would see some spark, but that never happened. It was a big disappointment. I understand why this book was in the "3 for $10" section of the book store.
I loved this book. I think the characters are so real. They stay with you long after you've finshed reading the book. The main character works at the Museum of Television and Broadcasting and I really enjoyed all the great tv trivia. It's hard to put down once you start reading it.
Schoolteacher Charles tried to speak with his fiancée Daphne Wells about buying his grandmother¿s house as she is moving to Florida. However, he cannot compete with the TV show Supermodels so she only half hears him. When it registers she thinks New Rochelle home of the Petries. With her penchant for TV, Daphne has the perfect job as a curator at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York City.---------------- Daphne realizes she has ignored her upcoming wedding so she needs to start planning as the commercials do not lend itself to set up a nuptial gala though they seem the ideal amount of time for sex with Charles. She asks her older sister, international model Billie, to help her. However, as the event comes closer she begins to think of it as a day of infamy rather than happiness. Adding to her doubts is her meeting television producer Jonathan, who brings passion outside the boob tube into her life especially during a weekend romp in the Hamptons. Daphne decides Jonathan is the man as he can get her away from the small screen for more than a minute or two.------------------- YOU COULD DO BETTER is a fine lighthearted romantic romp that is fun to follow though Daphne is shallower than George in Seinfeld. The story line is filled with amusing asides and entertaining TV trivia footnotes interwoven into the plot. Fans of a blithe pleasant tale will enjoy this light summer read.---------------- Harriet Klausner
