A COMEDY OF ERINN                               CELIA BONADUCE
Posted: Aug. 19, 2013

Erinn Wolf needs to reinvent herself. A once celebrated playwright turned photographer, she's almost broke, a little lonely, and tired of her sister's constant worry. When a job on a reality TV show falls into her lap, she's thrilled to be making a paycheck--and when a hot Italian actor named Massimo rents her guesthouse, she's certain her life is getting a romantic subplot. But with the director, brash, gorgeous young Jude, dogging her every step, she can't help but look at herself through his lens--and wonder if she's been reading the wrong script all along...


What a wonderful follow up to The Merchant of Venice Beach.  Celia Bonaduce once again is right on target with her characters that command your attention.  They are quirky, intriguing, and yet someone you could bring home to dinner.  She has you laughing at your main character Erinn at the same time you are feeling sorry for her for all she tends to close herself off to.  She is in her early 40’s and to say she is very set in her was is an understatement to the tenth degree.  Then you add her geeky brain and endless senseless trivia to the mix and most people want to strangle her.  But for some reason in the end you can’t help but love her.  Take Jude the first person she has come to check out her guest house on the Santa Monica coast line.  Being that he was at least 12 years younger, sexier than sin, and different than her and showed up on a skateboard did not give him any pointers on how to win her over. Yet knowing who she was and liking her photography work was a plus.  Then, he lost points when he insulted her about her spear tire by saying if he lived there he could help her lose it and said the translated version of her cat’s name which is “Caro” was Truck in English and suited him better.  Rinn, & Rin Tin Tin all you can just imagine she didn’t take to. From there on, this book just keeps getting better.  I loved that the characters from Merchant made appearances but that the new ones did this follow up book justice.  I like that it can stand on its own as a storyline and not make you feel like you missed out on a lot.  But read Merchant you won’t be sorry. Now this does a lot of history which if you knew me you would know is not my forte.  Yet, not only did I learn something I had fun learning it because of the fun bantering the characters had telling it. My husband was amazed when I was discussing it with it he loves history. :)
