What a charmer! A Dozen Apologies, published by Tracy Ruckman at Write Integrity Press, is the collaborative effort of a dozen well-known and popular authors, including Betty Owens, Jennifer Hallmark, Jerusha Agen, and others. Each author provided a chapter in the life of Mara Adkinson, former sorority bad girl.
Back in college, Mara and her sorority sisters got a kick out of publicly humiliating the men who loved them. Now, after a cruel shot of karma, Mara is on a quest to find all twelve men and apologize. Each chapter, written by a different author, features a new man, a new job–and apparently the authors were under strict orders not to make it a common job–and a new reaction to the apology.
Of course, this novel is a bit of a romance to boot, and the final chapter reveals the man of Mara’s dreams. This honey was one of the twelve she’d apologized to, chosen for her by pre-publication readers.
The novel is episodic by nature, but it’s a goodie. Short and fun, this book is a terrific opportunity to see the writing talents of several authors at once. What a special treat!
