Afternoon radio show host Nora Scott has always considered herself an ugly duckling, and the prosthetic foot she wears on her right leg isn't helping.

When she's on the air, as a faceless voice, she's Eugene, Oregon's favorite personality. Off the air, she's ... not so great, hiding her face and failing to connect with a guy for more than one night.

Now she's being pursued by two men, a work friend who wants to be more than friends, and the guy she loved when she was fourteen, before the accident.

Nora must figure out what she really wants, as well as how much she can forgive.


I had concerns that I wouldn't like this book when I first started reading it. I continued and it came together. I started to get involved in Nora's character. The author did a good job describing her struggles with her appearance because of her disability and deciding if she should have plastic surgery to change the appearance of her nose, and whether or not this would boost her self confidence. I also found her final love interest an interesting twist that tied in with her disability. Good effort on the author's debut.
