Throw Back Thursday Review – Stay Tuned by Lauren Clark

TBTI previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  I will be posting these reviews under a new blog post called Throw Back Thursday Reviews, until I have posted them all on this blog. 🙂 See some that I have already posted here.


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.

What happens next? Stay Tuned to find out…

My Thoughts:

Keep in mind these are thoughts I posted on a separate deleted blog a few years ago. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I want to start out by saying that this is not a bad book; it is just not the style of book I like to read. If you are into chick lit and happy endings this is a book for you. I however, am not a fan. This is a story about Melissa Moore, a news channel producer turned anchor. It has a lot of information on what goes on behind the scenes at the news station. I don’t watch the news, and so I did not find it that interesting to read about this. The book talked about how all the awful events in life (murder, car crashes, etc…) are what give the news shows good ratings. Melissa is trying to balance her daughter going away to college, changes in a stressful career, a marriage that is possibly failing, and a mother who has dementia. It is a lot for her to take on. There is a little drama in the book, with the news anchors fighting, and one of them stalking and attacking Melissa. Other than that, there is not a lot of suspense or anything in this book. Melissa isn’t sure whether her mother loves or cares about her and now with the dementia her mother doesn’t even recognize her all the time. Melissa also suspects her husband of cheating on her. I wouldn’t call this book exciting or anything, but the writing was decent. I read the entire book in one sitting.
