Every once in awhile as an author, you read a book you wish you had written. As Seen on TV is one of those books for me! As a Hallmark junkie, I knew I wanted to read this book as soon as I read the blurb.
Journalist Adina Gellar loves a good Hallmark movie as much as the next girl, so when she hears about a major real estate development being planned in sweet-sounding small town Pleasant Hollow, she pitches a story to her editor and packs her bags. She’ll help the locals fight the developer, land a full-time gig at the publication and maybe even find love like all those other big city girls do on TV.
Adina arrives in Pleasant Hollow ready to take part in their cute little festivals, make friends over coffee in the local diner and fall in love with one of the handsome bachelors in town. As it turns out, however, Pleasant Hollow isn’t really all that pleasant. The grouchy locals don’t even care about the development, and she’s struggling to find a story to write.
The only redeeming quality about Pleasant Hollow is that it’s also currently the temporary home of the handsome Finn Adams. Only, he’s not a local small town bachelor; he’s a city dweller just like her. He also happens to work for the developer she hoped to bring down.
When Adina doesn’t find the story or the man she expected to find, can she still pull off her own Hallmark-worthy happily ever after even without the typical ingredients? You’ll have to read to find out!
I loved all the references to Hallmark movies, Gilmore Girls and so many more of my favorite tv binges. Clearly, the author and I share the same watch list! If that sounds like you too, do yourself a favor and grab a copy of As Seen on TV!
Meredith’s next book, Someone Just Like You, publishes on July 25, 2023.
