Jeanie Callahan is trying to win the competition for the most new customers with her employer, Lotsacoups. In an effort to be "Close To Business". Jeanie tries out for a part in the local community theater's version of "The Sound of Music". She may not have the voice for Maria, but she is determined to make it as a nun/party guest. She hopes to insinuate her way into the group and make good business contacts. Will Jeanie also find romance along the way?

If you have ever wondered how all those business coupons in your mailbox come about, Ms. Motew's debut novel will explain the blood, sweat and tears that go into the effort. Jeanie's is a clever and quirky heroine. She is lovable in her protective nature toward her irascible grandfather.

Although I usually am not a fan of titled chapters, the author's use of bits and pieces from "Sound of Music" songs at the start of each chapter adds an extra funny touch. The phone messages and emails are hilarious and certainly in touch with this age of instant technology that does not always guarantee any better communication.

If you love quirky characters mixed with light romance, Coupon Girl is the perfect book for you. I will be looking forward to future titles from this clever author.
