    4. There are not many romances out there where the main couple are both past the age of forty With the majority of the romances I have read, the hero and heroine are usually anywhere from their mid twenties to late thirties, with the exception of a few books where the hero is in his early forties Usually the main female character is much younger than the hero by five to ten years, especially if he is around the big 4 0.It was quite refreshing to read Sherrill Bodine s new book, Talk of the Town, wi [...]

    8. Well this morning I read my first book by Sherrill Bodine and went and bought another on my kindle Talk of the Town I was not disappointed by either book I expect I will read books from Sherrill.Rebecca is a popular gossip colume when she is let go in order to hire a younger writer She still had two years left on her contract So she got moved to food colume She does not cook She was still throwing in gossip that got people laughing.David the new owner of the paper who fired her is a widower who [...]

    9. A nice easy read, would ve made a better summer beach read release I liked the sparring between the lead hero heroine and the fact that they re both in their mid to late forties My big quibble with the book was that as much as I liked and sympathized with heroine Rebecca Covingtion, I also hated her a bit It s hard to put my finger on why exactly, but for every spunky moment she had, she had a too stupid to live moment as well The author would ve been wise to spend much time developing Becky s [...]

    10. I think the main thing i liked about this book was the fact that it was tied to the media my future career The characters were interesting, but i felt like Sherrill Bodine could have explored their insecurities a lot throughout the book it definitely would have made the book interesting and drawn me into the story of the characters a lot The way it is now you can barely tell that David was struggling with guilt over loving someone besides his late wife Rebecca supposably had abandoment issues [...]

    12. It started out with promise, strong ish female taking control over an out of control situation In walks a love interest and I wish I could say it got better, but it really didn t The characters weren t really the problem, nor the storyline exactly though it did fall apart in places , it had to do with the writing There were a couple of page turns where I had to check if I didn t skip extra pages There were gaps in the action and the dialogue Speaking of dialogue, it was pretty flat Lastly, this [...]

    13. I don t know about you, but Ms.Bodine s first book didn t really excite me as I thought it would I felt like too many issues were brought up and then left unresolved like Rebecca s abandonment issues and David deciding to be with Rebecca right after he swore not to betray his deceased wife Ellen But I liked the theme of the book, and for once having lead characters much older than I did not bother me The romance was sweet and the intrigue into why Shannon was gunning for Rebecca very interesting [...]

    14. Talk of the Town held my attention the whole way through These was a nice romance going on throughout the book, along with enough drama to keep things interesting The main character Rebecca is a true class act All women should strive to carry themselves with the grace that she always manages I m looking forward to the sequel.

    15. Book 11 of 2012 This book was just OK for me It dealt with an older segment of the population 40s 50s , which is not a bad thing, just not what I m usually looking for in romances since I don t really relate.

    16. Beautiful ending to a delightful book I love an older heroine and Rebecca Covington is a hoot To be a successful columnist and witty but a bundle of insecurities is such a contradiction I m was happy with her HEA with David.

    17. Sherrill Bodine writes a funny, sexy and heart tugging battle of the wits in and out of the kitchen And Oh, the recipes are so good.Chat w Sherrill Bodine, author of TALK OF THE TOWN on Blogtalkradio 12 9 1PM ET DM with questions 4 her get a free book fly2 TalkoftheTown

    18. A funny, quick read I loved that the heroin Rebecca is in her fourties, with the passions, insecurities and struggles we all have.It made me smile, kept me relaxed and I m happy I read it.

    19. Being demoted triggers life changing events, not just for gossip columnist Rebecca Covington but her coworkers and friends.

    20. A little too romance novel for my taste Very simple, easy read, where not much happens The ending was the best part.
