When a Hollywood star invades the small town where a young actress lives, their relationship rivals any Tony Award-winning comedy portrayed on a Broadway stage. There’s great dialogue, a fun storyline and characters that readers will want to visit again and again.

Linnea Larson is an actress, working mostly on the stage of her family’s Minnesota dinner theater. Unfortunately, business is bad, and with all her heart, Linnea wants to save it. In a move to generate publicity, Linnea’s father hires Luke Powell to star in Guys and Dolls opposite his daughter. Luke is a superstar, but is dissatisfied with his life; he wants a break, in order to build a career where he can show the country that he has real talent — not just good looks and muscle. Can a superstar be happy basking in the tiny lights of a local theater, trying with all his might to get the boss’s daughter to like him? (ETERNAL, Oct., 283 pp., $12.50)
