Publisher's Description

Act I: Avoid conflict at all costs. Even when someone signs you up for something you really don't want to do. Act II: Try to hold things together, even when your life is spinning out of control. Act III: (You'll have to read the book to learn how it all plays out.)

Playwright Leah Townsend doesn't think of herself as a doormat. In fact, her life is pretty good. There's the gorgeous and dependable Edward (even if he is a little dull), and her challenging career (even if the last two plays were flops). The trouble is, Leah's feeling restless these days. The new play isn't going well. Her agent is handing out ultimatums. And her boyfriend Edward, who insists Leah "doesn't handle conflict well," has the nerve to enroll her in a conflict-management class full of people she's sure are her polar opposites, including a conservative talk-radio host named Cinco Dublin who thrives on the very thing Leah wants to avoid--making waves. Can a conflict-challenged playwright ever learn to stand her ground...even if life doesn't come in three predictable acts?

    If you fear confrontation, worry about pleasing people, and don't

    know how to say no without guilt, then get this book. You will

    be so glad you did. The author uses fiction with humor to

    deliver important truth.

    Although it took me a bit to get into the story, I really did enjoy this book! As a people pleaser myself, I learned some valuable lessons from Leah in her journey to find the true person that she was..whether people accepted that or not. This is my first read from Rene Gutteridge...I will check out more of her work.

    I'm reading this book for like the third time, and it is like taking a course in creative writing. It is one big lesson in and of itself. Rene Gutteridge keeps the plot moving and interesting, and keeps you invested and involved in the life of the main character, Leah, who is likable and easy to identify with. I also liked the added element of the play Leah is writing. The parallels are ironic and unique. I am anxious to read the rest of Rene Gutteridge's books!

    This was my first Rene Gutteridge book, which I bought because as a writer, I thought I would be able to identify with Leah because she's a playwright. Yet, I was able to identify with her on many other levels, too, particularly the "doormat" level (yes, I am a member of the Doormats Anonymous club). But I loved what Rene did with that, because the way she wrote the book, you don't actually realize how much of a doormat Leah is until you've been with her for awhile. I think that's what makes some of the plot elements, such as Leah's eventual relationship with Cinco, so warm and rewarding. Some of the characters' actions were a little hard to swallow, and I don't think most conflict management classes would agree with Marilyn's methods, but this is forgivable in light of the enjoyable plot and a protagonist you can really care about. Good work, Rene!

    I agree with the reviewer who said she couldn't stand how Leah wouldn't stand up for herself, because that's just not me. But, it's true to real life, because everyone is different, and many people are like that. This was a unique, out-of-the-ordinary, funny read, which I finished in a few days flat and wished there were 10 more! I found Edward maddening, Cinco charming...all the characters just popped - so the author absolutely succeeded. I'm definitely going to check out more of Rene Gutteridge.
