Gina Malone, the 49-year-old narrator of this witty series launch from Canadian author St. George (the nonfiction Gal Guide series), is a bestselling relationship book author and advice columnist known as the Ex-Whisperer. To escape the unwanted attention of her obsessive ex-husband, Gina leaves Toronto for Sunset Beach, a small town on Lake Huron, where her family has kept a summer cottage for generations. She arrives to find she’s already the town celebrity, thanks to the tireless efforts of her two aunts, who run an Italian restaurant. After barely a day in Sunset Beach, Gina is targeted by Iris, the Bible-thumping ex-wife of Hugh McTavish, Gina’s handsome renovation contractor. Meanwhile, Lillian, whom Gina advised to leave her abusive husband, Kyle Kowalski, has disappeared, and Kyle is blaming Gina. Aided by her childhood friends, dotty aunts, and the ever-capable Hugh, Gina faces danger and thwarts some evil mischief as she tries to help Lillian. She also tries to convince the authorities to take seriously her claims of being stalked. Clever Gina is bound to win the hearts of readers, who will look forward to her further adventures. (Nov.)
