Nora Goes Off Script

Nora is a single mom living in the small town of Laurel Ridge struggling to pay the mortgage and keep their eclectic home from crumbling. She exists paycheck to paycheck writing screenplays for The Romance Channel while her no-good husband Ben takes off in search of his real happiness. Nora realizes she is better off without him but that doesn’t mean the hurt isn’t real. So what does a good writer do? She pours her heart into something little different. Nora works in a little cabin in their yard called The Tea House and writes a movie called The Tea House. Not the Hallmark happy ending her agent is used to but its a powerful story loosely based on her own heartbreak. Quickly purchased and filmed with the sexiest man alive as the main character, Nora is thrown for a loop when they do a bit of filming in her yard and she and Leo Vance (absolutely sexiest man she has ever seen) fall into their own surprising romance right out of the movies. Her 8 and 10 year old instantly warm to Leo’s charms and it is only when he is called away for another film that Nora begins to panic. When plans don’t go as expected Nora wonders if she actually imagined the whole thing. A script within a script, Nora once again pours her story to the page but even she is struggling to find the right ending. This evenly paced, witty five star summer fun is pure joy and days later I find myself still smiling. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
