Publisher's Summary

Publishing: An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk. This is Kate’s world, but for how long?
When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, she thinks it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold on to but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. When her career and love affair hit their expiration dates, Kate sets off on a new adventure....
Starting over in California is easy, but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn’t. Nicholas Lavigne is eager to help her forget, but two things still own her heart: the dream of discovering the next great American novel and MacDermott Ellis. As Kate tries to rebuild her life, she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest best sellers publishing has seen in ages, and she's welcomed back with open arms. At the height of her success, the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she'd been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart. Behind the book there’s always more to the story.

She Suffers

Well, as I stated in my review of book one of this series, I could forgive the heroine Kate Mitchell, if she suffered for her sins, and suffer she did in Shelf Life the second book in the series. Still, I wasn’t happy with her choices but author Christina George sure knows how to spin an entertaining tale. I was fully engaged in this nearly 8 ½ hour audiobook and wondering how it was going to all end. I can’t wait for Ms. George’s next story!

Shelf Life - another great book in the series!

Would you listen to Shelf Life again? Why?

Another hit from author Christina George! I’ve read and listened to other books from Christina George’s The Publicist series in the recent past, and I wholeheartedly recommend this book for lovers of workplace romance and drama. I would definitely listen to Shelf Life again because of George's strong writing and characterization, and narrator, Lisa Cordileone does a great job at making Kate come alive! The Publicist series is highly readable and addicting to read!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Kate's strong and confident character, which definitely comes across in the audiobook and Cordileone's accurate and playful portrayal of the character.

Have you listened to any of Lisa Cordileone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have! I've listened to Cordileone's narration in another Christina George book, and this one remains consistently good and easy to listen to.

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
