The Show Must Go On
Jenna is certain of three things: 1. No way is she already thirty years old. (Except…she is.) 2. Annie the musical should never be crossed with Fifty Shades of Grey. (But this perfectly describes the show she’s currently starring in.) and 3. She can never return home—even if after twelve years her ex-boyfriend, Danny, wakes up from his coma and asks for her by name. (Which he does.) Okay, so sometimes Jenna gets a few things wrong. But she’s definitely sticking with her never going home plan. (At least until Danny’s younger brother, Will, arrives on Jenna’s doorstep and insists on escorting her back to Buffalo, NY—and Danny’s bedside.)
It’s four days after the latest presidential election, and Marc Kadella has the post-election blues. Sure, his guy didn’t win, but there’s more to it than that: the defeated incumbent was a decent man. Too bad you can’t say the same for his Machiavellian opponent—or his photogenic partner-in-crime. Thomas Jefferson Carver is charming and energetic, with a former beauty queen for a wife—and a name for the job to boot. Together they’re the package deal: young, modern, forward-thinking, and successful. That Mr. Carver was often accused of womanizing and that the couple used political clout to line their own pockets didn’t seem to matter to the American electorate.
The Fairer Hex
