Paperback Writer is pleased to announce returning author, Sheila Roberts. Previously last December Sheila was promoting her book, On Strike for Christmas. On Strike for Christmas is about a group of woman in small town America where they have decided “to go on strike” and give the men an opportunity to see firsthand what it takes to make the holiday merry and bright. On Strike takes a funny look at what happens when the tables are turned, but teaches both men and women the simple art of compromise and understanding as the strike is in danger of becoming disastrous for all involved. Now, Sheila has returned with her latest book, Bikini Season and it’s just in time for summer.
Bikini Season Synopsis
Erin Merritt has returned to her scenic hometown of Heart Lake to plan her wedding, but when she repeatedly runs into her childhood crush, she wonders if she’s engaged to the wrong man. To make matters worse, all the stress is making her eat, and now she can’t fit into her wedding dress.Erin enlists the help of her cooking club–Angela, Megan and Kizzy–and the Teeny Bikini Diet Club is born. The women make a pact to get slim enough to wear their bikinis to the lake by summertime, and it changes their lives forever. With a little help from her friends, Angela faces fears that her marriage is crumbling. Megan confronts the self-esteem issues that have always held her back. Kizzy deals with her husband’s efforts to sabotage her diet and keep her overweight. And Erin learns some important truths about love.
“Bikini Season deals with that most painful of annual rituals, fitting into one’s swimsuit. But it’s really about so much more – fitting into one’s life.”
–Susan Wiggs, New York Times best-selling author
