(78) Some Nerve by Jane Heller


I picked up Some Nerve at the library because I saw it was basically set in Missouri and I was feeling a little homesick so I picked it up. Jane Heller is a fun author. Her books are brain candy for those of us who have been stuck on a diet of meat and potatoes.

Ann Roth is a small town girl trying to make it as a Hollywood reporter. Her boss has commanded that she get an interview with *the* hottest movie star, Malcolm Goddard. When she refuses to confront her fear of flying just to get the interview she is fired and forced to go home to Middletown, Missouri with her tail between her legs.

Through an old high school friend, Ann learns that her nemesis, Malcolm will be entering the hospital for a heart procedure. Ann decides that she will "volunteer" to get close to Malcolm and prove to her LA editor that she does have what it takes to be a Hollywood reporter. But what she doesn't count on is that she starts to care for her patients and their problems, including hotshot Malcolm Goddard. Can she get the guy and still get the story?

Some Nerve was EXCACTLY what I needed today to keep my mind off of some serious family issues. It was light and fluffy, but with an intelligent and friendly heroine. I liked the development of the story and I liked how Ann grew from being this woman bent on revenge to genuinely caring about her patients, including Malcolm. Some Nerve was a fast read and the perfect kind of brain candy for a cold, dreary Sunday afternoon.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
