Song Stuck on the Brain: What Does the Fox Say... you know the part where it says "communicate with mo-o-o-orse, mo-o-o-rse..." then later I started singing Oh Victory in Jesus and Oh Happy Day. It's been a random and varied song day.
My book arrived in the mail on Monday, so I haven't had a chance to finish the book, but so far? Loving it. We're talking about a very talented and funny author here. The lines are sharp and the story so far has been really well formed. With pages to go, I can say this is definitely a book worth reading. Enjoy!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Hope Landon has been rewriting other people's greeting cards since she was six years old -- there's always a funnier caption. She's all set to chase those creative dreams with her musician fiance in New York City until he leaves Hope at the altar, deciding he must not really love this girl if he can't write a song for her. That may give her something to write about . . .
Hope disappears alone on what was supposed to be the couple's month long honeymoon. Upon returning she learns of her funeral -- everyone in her life concluded Hope must have killed herself after being jilted. Needing a fresh start more than ever, she heads for the Big Apple only to discover it's not that easy to rent a place when you've been declared dead.
Taking shelter at the YWCA, Hope soon lands a job at a Christian inspirational greeting card company as an assistant to Jake, a guy who shut down his organization's humor department. She has lost her faith in love; he needs to find something or someone that will make him laugh.
Is there anything in the cards for these two? Find out in the truly original Greetings from the Flipside by authors Rene Gutteridge (Boo) and Cheryl McKay (screenplay for The Ultimate Gift).
