Ugly Ducklings Finish First - Stacy Gail
There's always a worry when you review a friend's book -- what if I don't like it? But I never have that worry with Stacy. She writes wonderful characters in the friendly, funny style that is just her.

"Ugly Ducklings Finish First" is the best combo of sweet small town romance and sexy, can't-resist attraction. There's quiet wisdom underlying the banter and fun: the importance of family, strength of community, the painful journey to maturity.

Most of all, it's a story about love. We're loved, even if we don't always realise it.
