Synopsis: Barbara King’s dream is to become the next Barbara Walters.  She has long had one foot out the door of her current job–as an early morning news anchor at the fledgling cable news channel, The Pheonix.  Her plan is to do her time at The Phoenix and move on to something bigger, better, and more Barbara-Walters-like.  But when The Phoenix’s ratings unexpectedly skyrocket after its controversial, no-holds-barred coverage of a major news event, Barbara’s star is poised to rise along with it. But is she willing to trade her journalistic ethics—and her dream—for fame?

Review: This novel provides a fun, lighthearted look behind the scenes of a newsroom and all the people who work there. It is full of humor, romance, friendship, and the struggle of staying true to yourself while working amidst strong egos and backstabbers. There are amazing plot twists, and several of the characters have endearing quirks.  This is a story in which you can easily lose yourself.  A great beach read!!

Rating: Four stars
