LATE BLOOMER - MELISSA PRITCHARD

Prudence True Parker teaches a course called Advanced Personal Journey at a community college in Arizona.  Prudence seems to have quite a few problems of her own.  She is divorced and loaded with debts. 

On Saturdays, Prudence visits her local library.  One day she noticed an announcement that stated Mildred Crowley, author of the Savage Passion romance series would be there at 4 P.M. 

Prudence and probably everyone else assumed that Mildred was a woman.  Guess what?  Mildred was a man and his real name was Digby Deeds.  He used the alias Mildred Crowley.  Deeds knew he was dying and he offered Prudence the final forty plots of his popular series.  Prudence could not believe it.  This was a dream come true and it would help with her financial problems. 

Prudence accepted the offer.  However, did she realize what she was in for?

Melissa Pritchard has written a very entertaining book.  At times it will make you laugh at loud.  At other times, it will make you feel sad for the character.  The book contains a cast of flaky characters.  If you haven't read any of Melissa Pritchard's books, this is a great one to start with.  However, be warned - you will want to read the others also.  This book has all the ingredients to make it a great read - from the very serious moments to the very funny ones. 
This book is highly recommended.
