Brush Up Your Shakespeare
A romantic advice book based on Shakespearean characters—what a great idea! Elizabeth, an English professor at Pasadena Community College is working on a book proposal with that premise but not making much progress. Then her ex husband who has become a big Hollywood star breezes back into her life and invites her to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for the summer—just to keep him in line while he performs in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, all expenses paid. Maybe she’ll have time to work on her book proposal as well. Family and romance complications ensue. This light and breezy novel includes pages from the book on which Elizabeth is working which are laugh out loud funny. Elizabeth the First Wife by Lian Dolan is a perfect summer read.
