Publisher's Summary

From acclaimed romance author Ellyn Oaksmith comes a novel of change, challenges, and ultimately kindness....
Being overly kind isn't in Kylie Harrow's nature. This has never been more evident than when Kylie vents her frustrations to an innocent employee - and the whole scene is posted online, tanking her career and earning her the dubious distinction of "world's worst boss". But when she flees home to the South, Kylie finds her childhood home has changed. The high school quarterback is now the hot and handsome sheriff. Her mother has turned her home into a nudist colony. And, worst of all, having heard about her daughter's exploits, her mother won't let her in the door until Kylie completes 50 kind acts in 50 days.
The task seems easy enough at first - and may even help repair her media image - but it quickly turns into a hilarious quest that leads Kylie down a bumpy road filled with new challenges. What started as a gimmick to save her career evolves into a mission to save a spunky old woman and her little dog from homelessness. As Kylie learns about the nature of kindness, she finds the path to happiness and, for the first time ever, maybe even love.

Any additional comments?

This book is very funny, it follows Kylie as she is called into see her boss. Kylie thought it's for a raise or promotion, but is somewhat different. The antics that follow are funny and poignant as she faces her past and tries to make sense of her future. I enjoyed this audiobook.

Totally crazy and entertaining fun

This book was highly entertaining. While I thought that the main character, Kylie, was a piece of work, the book was thoroughly entertaining. It was full of interesting characters and laugh out loud moments. While I can't imagine Kylie could ever change enough to be a more caring person, she does try. And, I loved the dynamic between her and her friend. The friend knew her and loved and accepted her for the flawed person she was. That's a friend.
This book is hard to describe without giving great things away. But, this is a full bodied book that will keep you engaged and entertained from beginning to end.
I'm a huge fan of Wendy Rich Stetson, which was why I jumped at the chance to try out this new author. Wendy did not disappoint, and I really like Ellyn Oaksmith's storytelling. I can't wait to see what's next.
