Summary: (from goodreads) All My Tomorrows is losing the ratings war.Headwriter Alice McGillicutty would do anything to save the long-running soap opera from cancellation, even reading the old absurdist melodrama "The Edge of Darkness" for inspiration.

When scandal rips Hollywood bad boy Peter Walsingham off the tabloids and into her studio, Alice doubts the small screen is big enough for his ego - or his entourage.

In their battle of pride and prejudice, will Peter's vanity and arrogance compel Alice to write him out of her script, or can she find a role for him in All My Tomorrows?

Are you a fan of soap operas? If you are, this book is for you. All My Tomorrows is a very smart, comical and fast paced version of Pride and Prejudice.

Alice McGillicutty is a writer for the daytime drama, All My Tomorrows. With the ratings in the toilet, Alice turns to romance novels that her mother used to read. The current one she is drawing material from is The Edge of Darkness. To try to bring the ratings up during sweeps week, All My Tomorrows is bringing on a new actor to lure viewers. Peter Walsingham is supposed to be the answer to all their problems. Unfortunately he is known for being a pompous and very entitled celebrity whom Alice wants nothing to do with. She now has to rewrite plot lines and he is not working into her romantic scenarios for the show. Peter wants nothing to do with the actress/character that he is supposed to become romantically involved with on the show. He doesn't believe viewers will find his involvement with her realistic and wants to offer his input even though Alice does not welcome input from the actors on the show. The ultimate question is, can Alice and Peter get over being too proud to work out their differences and save All My Tomorrows?

Although this book was difficult to get into at first, it quickly picks up. I had a hard time figuring out which story I was supposed to be focusing on. There are two stories going on simultaneously since Alice is reading The Edge of Darkness, the reader gets to read certain excerpts right along with her. Once you are able to separate the two and keep each story line straight in your head, All My Tomorrows becomes a very enjoyable book that keeps you wanting more.

  1. Oh, my, it sounds like poor Peter/Darcy doesn't like what Alice/Lizzy is writing for him - he doesn't want to be matched with a Caroline? Heh! I'm curious why he is considered a "bad boy." Thanks for the review!
