In this superior contemporary romance from Myers (Do Me Right ), Shelly Piper, a Denver television reporter, leaves her job at a local network and takes a position as a coanchor at a nearby PBS station, where she excels as a journalist. She builds a good professional relationship with Jack Halloran, her hunky boss and coanchor, that later blossoms into something more personal, though Shelly, a "substantial" size 12 in a size 4 industry, must struggle with her self-image. The author convincingly explores the bonds of women's friendships as Shelly's best friend, Yvonne, plans her wedding to Daniel, and Shelly argues that Yvonne is agreeing to undergo breast augmentation surgery only to please her fiancé. Myers's ability to portray true-to-life sympathetic characters will resonate most with readers of this captivating romance. Agent, Pamela Hopkins. (Oct.)
