On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Former child actress, Danielle “Dani” Winter, left Hollywood to transform an old cinema into a dinner theater, seeing the project as her chance to take control of her future. The middle-of-nowhere location in Wisconsin is a perfect escape from backstabbing celebrity friends. The small town welcomes her help with open arms, but one man questions her plan.
After unsuccessful writing stints on both coasts, Paul Howell returns home to New Hope. He’s shocked to discover that his sister has sold the family business to a beautiful woman. With the encouragement of his neighbors, he reluctantly agrees to write Dani’s next musical.
Working together, they discover more similarities than differences and grow close. When Dani’s former best friend and America’s sweetheart, Kara Kensington arrives, their blossoming relationship is threatened in more ways than one.
Dani rested her head in a hand and massaged her temples. In LA, she could stop at her favorite acupuncturist. The woman stuck needles in the pressure points, and Dani’s cares floated away in a sharp piercing moment of clarity. Telling everyone the truth was her only method of readily available headache relief.
“Yes, I do,” Kara said.
She chirped in her highest pitch of elation. Dani twitched her nose.
“I’ve been talking to my agent about the guy at your place. Everyone loves the idea of a show about—wait for it—are you ready?” She squealed. “When you hear the angle, you’ll scream. It’s genius. Hollywood comes to save small-town America. The storyline is perfect, and the script writes itself. Who doesn’t adore an underdog?”
Are you stealing my life? Gritting her teeth, Dani counted to ten and breathed through her nose. She definitely wanted to scream. Over the past three weeks, she hadn’t heard a peep from Kara and assumed the plans stalled. Dani hoped her oldest friend found another idea for her latest comeback pitch. Dani pinched the bridge of her nose. The idea of the two united as a pair twisted her heart more than Kara running off with her ex-boyfriend. “I… I… I really don’t know what to say.”
“Don’t say anything. I’ll come back for your next big show, and I’ll spring it on him then. When is your next production?”
Opening and closing her mouth, Dani couldn’t form a response. She should have choked on all the lies she told. Unwilling to add one more to her guilt, she sighed. “Labor Day.”
