A More Magazine Don’t Miss pick! By the New York Times bestselling author of Must Love Dogs. 

"Her quirky voice and sense of humor are as strong as ever."—The Orlando Sentinel 

"very funny...with plenty of giggles."—The Hartford Courant

March Monroe and her daughter Olivia are going to college. March knows that Olivia is going, naturally, since she and her husband have just made their first exorbitant tuition payment. But Olivia doesn’t exactly know the arrangement . . . yet. Imagine Olivia’s surprise when one day she shows up for training at a local radio station and finds out that one of the other interns is . . . her mother.

“Cook has a gift for telling an entertaining and funny story that is light enough for a beach read, yet weighty enough to get under your skin and into your heart. Her characters are quirky and inconsistent, good-hearted folks who make mistakes and have regrets, but none of the damage is lasting. Love and forgiveness beat out hate and revenge.” —Patriot Ledger 

“Cook’s ability to make families foibles ring true -- and funny -- ensures a delightful read.”—Library Journal 

“Claire Cook infuses her novels with that sassy kind of off-beat humor that makes you giggle, shake your head, and then keep reading. And isn’t that what you want a beach book to do?”—Florida Today

“Cook's characters are delightful and quirky, and the storyline is fast paced and lively with just the right touch of humor and romance.” —Fresh Fiction

“Nobody does the easy-breezy beach read with a lighter hand than Claire Cook.” —Hartford Courant

From Publishers Weekly

May 31, 2004 – A midlife back-to-school adventure propels a suburban housewife into an unlikely radio career in Cook's third novel, set on the South Shore of Massachusetts. March Monroe is the spunky protagonist who left college life behind to marry a civil engineer named Jeff and raise a daughter and son while working as an aerobics instructor, party planner and finally a life coach. With Olivia off to college and Jackson not far behind, March finally takes her husband up on his longstanding offer to send her back to school. The degree requires an internship, and when March explores her limited options she finds herself inadvertently working together with Olivia as fellow interns at a local radio station. Exploiting the friction between March and Olivia, handsome programming director David Callahan proposes that the two do a mother-daughter call-in show that quickly takes off and becomes popular. Cook wrings some humor out of family life, March's mild flirtation with Callahan and the back-to-school experience. But the story meanders, detouring into asides about family pets, the generation gap, the stresses of being overscheduled and other typical suburban family disasters. Despite (or because of) the stabs at domestic insight, the cluttered result reads like warmed-over Erma Bombeck.
