Alex Spencer, movie trivia buff extraordinaire, takes over the newspaper where Phoebe works, and presents her with a lovely surprise on the day of her performance evaluation. Instead of giving her her dream job of movie reviewer, Alex instead hands Phoebe a pink slip. Now without a job, Phoebe heads back home to Barley, California, when her mother breaks both of her arms in an accident. She ends up signing on to work at the tiny hometown newspaper, The Barley Bulletin. Phoebe thinks she's finally rid of Mr. Annoying Alex Spencer for good when she moves to Barley permanently, but when he shows up in her hometown later on (after buying the newspaper she NOW works for), she begins to wonder if maybe God has other plans for the two of them. Can Alex be the leading man God has chosen for Phoebe?
DREAMING IN BLACK AND WHITE is a humorous adventure into the life of an everyday unmarried woman looking for her dream man. As a film buff, Phoebe has a huge store of trivia which is presented throughout the novel. Laura Jensen Walker has brought us a heroine who just wants a normal life with a husband and kids, but finding Mr. Right has become a futile search as the choices get fewer and less appealing. Witty and fast-paced, this humorous novel will have you laughing out loud at the men Phoebe dates, and then passes over on her search for her perfect match. The sequel to this book, DREAMING IN TECHNICOLOR, is now also available, and a must-buy to complete the adventures of Phoebe.
