Act Two: A Novel in Perfect Pitch by Kimberly Stuart

I got Act Two by Kimberly Stuart as part of a blog tour and was not expecting too much out of it. I was pleasantly surprised. The book is about an old (40) opera star who is trying to figure out what to do in the next step in her life. Her shows aren't selling, and her voice just isn't what it used to be. Her agent suggests that she move to Iowa for a semester to teach at a small liberal arts school. The novel is about her life in Iowa as she tries to decide what act two of her life will be.

The novel is well written and has pretty good character development. It is a light-hearted quick read (I read it in two days) and a perfect summer chick-lit book. The novel is easy to relate to for the country bumpkin as well as the NYC diva, and I was happy to say I really enjoyed the novel.

For more information on the author, you can check out her personal interviews or website. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from her in the future. For more information on this book, check out the other bloggers on the blog tour.


  1. I've never heard of her, but if I ever see this one at the library or used book store I will have to pick it up.

  2. Hi, All-

    Thanks, Britni, for the kind words about ACT TWO. I'm glad you were pleasantly surprised. What--a pig rump on the cover didn't ask you to expect greatness?!? :)
