Does reaching the pinnacle of success in your chosen career path guarantee a happy future? Thatís what Felicity Charm is expecting to happen to her. Felicityís reality is a bit different. To find out if she truly leads a charmed life youíll need to read The Thrill of it All by Christie Ridgeway.

Felicity is expecting that with winning the Joanie, a prestigious industry award, for hostessing her popular home shopping show, All Thatís Cool Afternoon, her life will change. She believes she will finally leave her past behind her, and charge headfirst into her future.

Calling home for what Felicity believes will be the last time changes more than her after award show plans. That phone call has a bigger impact than anyone could have imagined, least of all Felicity. When she calls her Aunt Vi who took her in after her parents died when she was young, Felicity feels that the best way to put her past behind her is to go home, and confront the past one last time.

The ride home is quite eventful, and not a happy one. Felicity crashes her car. She doesnít manage to do much damage to the other vehicle or driver, but for her the experience is to say at the least, life changing. Michael Magee, the other driver saves Felicity in more ways than one. However to find out what these different ways are, youíll have to read The Thrill of it All for yourself.

Michael and Felicity, I felt were made for each other. They are both headstrong, and committed to their families and friends, even though they try hard to hide their true feelings. The journey of their relationship is well written, and not rushed, though the chemistry between the two is undeniable.

The Thrill of it All is a romantic comedy with a hint of suspense thrown in. For me this makes a perfect read! If you enjoy this story like I did, youíll be glad to know that Ms. Ridgeway has an extensive backlist to tide you over until the next release.
