Bestselling author Tami Hoag's novels have appeared regularly on national bestseller lists since the publication of her first book in 1988. She lives in Los Angeles.
Available for the first time on audio, this 1988 Loveswept romance, prolific New York Times best-selling author Hoag's debut novel, shows definite signs of its age-e.g., no cell phones, no Internet. But this only adds charm to Hoag's humorous tale of schoolteacher Genna and her attempts to keep pace with modern life in the 1980s. Actress/narrator Deanna Hurst impressively portrays a wide range of female characters, from a housekeeper to a five-year-old. Though she doesn't manage to project the bass tones one might expect from a -macho-yet-sensitive male like Genna's new neighbor, professional football player J.J., she does bring the right pacing and energy to his characterization. Romance fans will be entertained. [See Top Audio, LJ 9/15/09.-Ed.]-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Colonial Williamsburg Fdn. Lib., VA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
