I didn't want to discourage Bob, but that screenplay of his had been shopped to every major production company in Hollywood over the past three years, and no one seemed to be biting. While I hated to say his Amish vampire story was dead in the water, I couldn't help but wonder

You wouldn't believe how tough it is to be funny on demand. Comedy writing is serious stuff.

My parents continued to work, visiting with the customers and stopping on occasion for a peck on the cheek, or even a quick kiss on the lips. I had to wonder if they were going a little overboard with the affection because they knew they were being watched. Likely. Still, it did my heart good to see them so tender toward one another. Why not? So many people grew apart over the years. It felt great to know they still cared so much about each other. In between thoughts of murdering one another, anyway.

Rejection is a terrible thing to deal with. And it hurts even more if you don't know why the person is rejecting you. Makes you question yourself in a thousand different ways.

I picked this up as a fun read and it was, but I was getting tired of it by the end. The main character is Christian and talks about it a lot. (She's one of those people who knows an awful lot about God, or thinks she does.) The romance doesn't face any real obstacles, only misperceptions. My favourite parts were the behind-the-scenes look at a Hollywood sitcom and the big, happy Greek-American family of restauranteurs. Really, I could have done without the romance entirely and just enjoyed this as a story of a Hollywood writer and her family.
