Elizabeth Lancaster, an English professor at Pasadena City College, finds her perfectly dull but perfectly
orchestrated life upended one summer by three men: her movie-star ex-husband, a charming political operative, and William Shakespeare. Until now, she’d been content living in the shadow of her high-profile and highly accomplished family. Then her college boyfriend and one-time husband of seventeen months, A-list action star FX Fahey, shows up with a job offer that she can’t resist, and Elizabeth’s life suddenly gets a whole lot more interesting. She’s off to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for the summer to make sure FX doesn’t humiliate himself in an avant-garde production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
This is a smart, entertaining, and clean book. I loved the clever references to Shakespearian couples and the likable and intelligent Elizabeth. Just the kind of book to pick up and just enjoy yourself for a few days.
Elizabeth the First Wife just came out this month, but I have two copies to give away!
