Sherry Terry’s Review: 5-Stars
I loved Turn the Paige by Roseanne Beck. I think the cover is fun and campy and fits this contemporary romance story well. I was quickly drawn into the story with Roseanne’s clean writing. I like the voice of this story, and the main character being a doctor is right up my alley.
I was all prepared to find the story littered with medical inconsistencies and was pleasantly surprised with it was not. Working in the medical field myself for 18-years means finding a book with medical “correctness” in it is not as easy as it sounds. I think Roseanne did a great job with the main character, Paige. Then I read Roseanne’s bio and see she is a doctor. Kudos for having time to write!
All the characters in, Turn the Paige are well-done and feel like real people. Even the dead grandmother, Nana who makes appearances to guide Paige in learning how to sit still and find her center. When Paige goes home to take care of Nana’s last request, she discovers her grandmother has been busy including the town in her scheme to show Paige the one man for her lives right next door.
Nick is a good guy even though he tries to come off as a smart-ass. The two knew each other as children, and are thrown back together in a cute way when Nick breaks his arm. Roseanne sends them down the rabbit hole of love with great wit and humor.
This is a fun, light read with campy fun characters with flaws and real-life experiences. The romance is on the tame side and fits both the characters and the story. I enjoyed Turn the Paige very much.
