Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Critic by Joanne Schwehm

Convey a message

Andrea Jordan dreams of acting on Broadway, and she is at the cusp of achieving success. All her sacrifices start to pay off when she lands a role that will catapult her to stardom. 

Express our thoughts

Award-winning theater critic Bentley Chambers possesses the power to make or break a career. Theatergoers consider his reviews to be gospel, and actors cringe at the thought of him in the audience. His words possess power. 

A heart’s not made of stone

More than one actor has been sent packing after Bentley’s bad reviews, and Andrea could be next. She won’t stand by and let him shatter her dreams, but she never thought giving him a piece of her mind would also mean giving him a piece of her heart.

Will Andrea discover on her own the passion Bentley claims she lacks, or will he be the one to draw it out of her?

Words… choose them wisely.


My 4-Star Review

This was such a wonderful story.  Between the angst and sweetness in it, I was sucked right in.

The journey that Andrea and Bentley take in this book is a breath of fresh air.  We have Bentley, the critic who has been following Andrea's performances with much hope and disappointment.  He can see her ability to act, but she hasn't quite given it to him.

Andrea has been bashed by this critic over and over again.  This current play could be her big break into Broadway.  And he slams her again.  She has had it.  She is going to get to the bottom of why this one critic continues to slam her over and over again.

The sparks that fly between these two characters is inevitable.  We see that from the beginning.  The pull these two have in undeniable.  But the situation they are in professionally could ruin any real chance they could have at love and promising careers.

I really enjoyed this story.  This is the first book of Joanne's that I have read.  I am definitely a fan of hers now!
