Chick Lit Plus Blog Tour: Stay Tuned by: Lauren Clark

Goodreads Summary: 

What happens when a #1 news team becomes the top story instead of reporting it? 

For TV producer Melissa Moore, crisis management comes with the job. From employee disputes to her high-maintenance boss, there’s not much she hasn’t seen or can’t handle. 

But no one—including Melissa—expects a fistfight during the ten o’clock news. When sexy-but-crazy Alyssa Andrews lands a punch on her co-anchor’s face, Melissa jumps on set to help. She’s determined that WSGA’s reputation won’t be destroyed on her watch. 

Both anchors are fired and Melissa agrees to fill in—but not before polishing her look from haircut to heels. While the new Melissa wows WSGA viewers, her personal life starts fraying at the edges. Melissa’s husband is away more than he’s home, leaving cryptic Post-it notes in his wake. Her mother’s antics spiral out of control at the nursing home and a stalker decides Melissa is her next target.

My Review: 

ReadingNook Rating 3.5 out 0f 5 stars

Melissa Moore is a producer for the WSGA news station but when the two anchors who are also in an out-of-work relationship have a brawl on the air and are both fired, Melissa comes to the rescue and temporarly fills in as co-anchor, but while she's saving the day at work, her home life is coming apart at the seams. She's worried her unattentive, overworked husband is having an affair, she's worried about the "relationship" with her co-anchor, and memories of the past and not having the second child she had hoped for is coming back to haunt her. 

I found this Chick-Lit novel to have everything a Chick-Lit novel should have, a witty main character, a disaster or two, a failed/renewed relationship, and lots of fun, quirky moments. I really enjoyed the characters of this story. I feel like Lauren made them not only fun and well-developed, but also very believable. I enjoyed Melissa's best friend Candace and her two precious twin daughters, and although I had my doubts at first really enjoyed Ricks character. The only character I had some issues with was Melissas' husband Chris, who by the end of the novel had redeemed himself tremendisly. 

I felt like this novel was extremely predictable, and wasn't new or interesting in the respects that I feel like i've read this story before. I pretty much early on pin-pointed how the story would end, It didn't leave any element of suprise, and for that reason I wasn't compelled to keep reading. Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the story, but just felt it was going to be predictable, and it was. For those who enjoy a fun, light-hearted read I think you'll really enjoy Lauren Clark, I really enjoyed her writing style and would like to see how her next novel compares.
