Talk of the Town is sassy and sizzling; a decidedly entertaining romp inside the world of News Media.”

Product Description – From
Darlings, what a to-do at the Daily Mail today! After fifteen years as Chicago’s gossip guru, Rebecca Covington has been demoted from divulger of secrets for the city’s elite to headlining recipes in the Home and Food section. Apparently, a touchy senator is threatening legal action for Rebecca’s latest extramarital scoop. But Windy City rumor has it that new CEO and dreamy Pierce Brosnan look-alike David Sumner downgraded Rebecca in favor of fresher, younger blood on the social beat.
Industry insiders expect Rebecca to fight her denouement, and inquiring minds have already seen the feisty maven trading quips and searing glances wtih her arresting new boss. Rebecca swears she’ll reclaim her shining star status, but can the dishy diva even cook? And how can she ignore David’s arousing effect on her sensibilities?
Don’t miss a trick, darlings. Sparks are going to fly.”

Talk of the Town is a delightful story about a middle-aged gossip columnist who gets replaced by a  much younger woman. As Rebecca fights back and tries to reclaim her “throne” sparks fly between her and the new sinfully-handsome boss. New CEO, David and Rebecca are oh-so-good together as romance sizzles in and out of the bedroom. The smoothly-flowing story is enchanting, tender and fast-paced! The sexual content is very hot without explicit detail. They fight for love while Rebecca fights for her professional reputation and her career. I love the ending; I can’t share it with you or I’d ruin it.
I very highly recommend this book!

  3. Hello all,

    I wanted to share an email with all of the Sherrill Bodine fans out there. When I emailed a copy of my review to Sherrill, she replied two days later (reprinted with Sherrill Bodine’s permission):

    Darling Bobbie,


    Thank you so much — you made my month — wait, my summer!!

    I received it on my iphone while in NYC with my editor — I of course showed it to her immediately — it couldn’t have been better timed! I have just turned in my second book (A BLACK TIE AFFAIR out in Jan 2010) and I was pitching her my next two ideas in the hopes of getting another two book contract — I’m very sure you gave my efforts a HUGE boost!!!

    I truly appreciate your support — it means everything!!!

    Best, Sherrill
