Lauren Clark is on tour with CLP Blog Tours. Stay Tuned follows Melissa Moore, a TV producer that gets thrust into anchor spotlight after an on-air fight between the regular anchors. While Melissa has always been comfortable behind the camera, having her face in viewer’s homes is another story. Her best friend helps give her a head to toe makeover, and her new look helps boost her confidence. If only it could help her marriage as well. Communication with her husband has turned into a scattering of Post-It notes, and Melissa wonders if something else is going on with him. With her mother’s mental health declining, a stalker, and a pile of work woes, Melissa wonders if she can hold it together, or if her world will just keep spiraling out of control.

I was having fun with this story from the very beginning. Clark has experience in the TV world, and her knowledge shows throughout the story. It was intriguing to get an insider’s point of view on how shows are produced, and the characters all bring something to the story. Melissa was a great heroine, struggling to keep control of her life and worried about loved ones, but still able to bring humor and a strength. While I thought the pace of the book got a little slow at some points, the last third of the story was pretty suspenseful and I didn’t want to put the book down. There was a sudden and sad twist at the end that seemed a bit rushed to me, but overall, really great book from Lauren Clark. I definitely recommend and will keep an eye out for more from her!
