THE SECRET GODDESS CODE
Soap actress Gloria Hart has been fired from her show. Housewife and pie maker Jenny Miller feels her marriage has gotten stale. Their lives collide in Mooreville, Miss., when Gloria's car crashes and Jenny's husband invites her to stay at their house until Gloria can manage by herself. That's when Gloria offers to teach Jenny the Secret Goddess Code to win her husband's attention. Meanwhile, a wealthy, gorgeous horseman draws the actress's eye, and Jenny's teenage daughter has her own romantic problems. The Secret Goddess Code (3), by Peggy Webb, is a fun story with appealing characters. But telling it in three first-person viewpoints scatters rather than deepens the emotional impact.
