Acting Up - A Covington Falls Chronicle - Debuts April 22

Okay...I can't wait. So excited that ACTING UP, book 2 in my Covington Falls series will be available on April 22 from Astraea Press. ACTING UP features a new couple, Addison Covington a Hollywood star who's lost her career and her self-respect after a nasty divorce. Ethan Thomas is a widower and single father to twin boys. If you read MARRY ME you might remember him as one of Seth's friends. ACTING UP is such a fun book. I know you will adore Addison and Ethan. 

Here's the blurb

Addison Covington is the reigning Ice Queen of television. Until her producer husband falls in love with her on-screen daughter and a well-placed punch on national television casts her as the wicked ex-wife. Fired and disgraced, she escapes to the idyllic Southern town where she found comfort in a time of turmoil as a teenager.

Life is constantly on the brink of chaos for widower Ethan Thomas. Being a single father is one challenge. As a high school principle he also has to deal with hundreds of students, not to mention their interfering parents. Now he’s short one drama teacher and if he doesn’t find a replacement to direct the spring musical he’s going to have a riot on his hands. His childhood neighbor, Addison Covington, could be an answer to prayer. Or one more complication he can’t afford.

Before Addison can say “Casting Call” she's drafted to direct the high school musical. Soon she’d dealing with some off-key caterwauling, a bitter stepson showing up on her doorstep, and the boy-next-door turned sexiest high school principal she's ever met. One thing Addison and Ethan agree on is that there’s no room in their lives for romance. He’s got too much at stake, and she needs to reclaim her former glory in Hollywood. In the end, these two lost souls will choreograph a happy ending with the help of Grace, Love and a Curtain Call.
