CALL ME IRRESISTIBLE

Image of Call Me Irresistible: A Novel

Phillips’ newest romp tosses together progeny from three of her previous classics. Oodles of humor and some pathos are featured in this tale of mismatched romance. The denizens of Wynette, Texas, are both nutty and not to be messed with, especially when it comes to their “Saint” Teddy Beaudine. Great romance doesn’t get more fun than this!

Meg Koranda is being given a lesson in tough financial love from her family, so her resources are slim when she arrives in Wynette for her best friend Lucy Jorik’s wedding to Ted Beaudine. It doesn’t take long for Meg to realize that Lucy is having second thoughts. But when Lucy bails, everyone in town blames Meg for the breakup. Since she owes money for her hotel and Ted is out for vengeance, Meg is in hot water and finds herself in employment hell as the town takes turns beating on her. Strangely, after a while Meg begins to see the good sides of the town characters, but she dare not let her heart get involved with the coolly perfect Ted. (MORROW, Jan., 400 pp., $25.99)
