Sneak Peek: The Joke’s on Me – by Laurie Boris

Today we get a sneak peek from Laurie Boris’s novel, The Joke’s on Me:

Frankie Goldberg is a former actress and stand-up comic whose life in Hollywood falls apart with an exclamation mark when a mudslide destroys her hopes, her home, and her entire collection of impractical footwear. Needing comfort, she returns to her mother’s B&B in Woodstock, New York, where she spent her teen years doing chores and chasing after the handyman’s hot, high-school-jock son. But the joke’s on her.
