I just read Bad Boy by Olivia Goldsmith and it was quite a funny read with a few tears thrown in.  Some of the situations Jon found himself in during his transformation were hysterical.  I think I am going to read some of her other books now.

I read Switcheroo  a few years ago.  I felt it was a very poorly written book- no depth, almost like she rushed to write it.  I hardly ever get that specific feeling when I read a book.

Her death a few years was very sad....

I also read Switcheroo, but I actually liked the book.  I felt like it was an interesting topic, and I haven't read another book that took that same approach.

Oh, that is sad.  I had no idea that she had passed away.

I also did not like Switcheroo.  I haven't read anything else by her.

I did like Switcheroo. I read it a long time ago, though. I have not read anything else.

The first book I read by her was The Bestseller, and I absolutely loved it!

I enjoyed Switcheroo, although it was pretty fluffy.  The First Wives Club was a scream, and far, far better then the movie.  I recently read Marrying Mom, and Young Wives, both were OK, but not great.
