Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At 35, Izzy Rose is a successful, Emmy Award-winning television producer, pulling down a hefty salary in a fast-paced newsroom and living the good life of a “middle-class socialite” single gal in San Francisco. She’s fine with the fact that she doesn’t have kids, but now she’s fallen in love with a wonderful Southern man named Hank who comes with two of his own. When she goes to meet Hank’s family in Memphis, she’s not expecting that he’ll pop the question. Or that in a very short time, she’ll say "I do," becoming stepmother to Hank’s two adolescent sons and packing her bags for a new life in Texas. Izzy’s world, as she knew it, was turned upside down.

In The Package Deal, Izzy makes her way through the treacherous territory many career women must negotiate as she learns to be a wife and a mother to the “Young One, and the “Tall One” while holding onto some of her old identity. At once relatable and exquisite, brave and scared, Izzy chronicles how one woman reinvents the stepmother role in her sassy, stylish, but also loving and vulnerable image. The Package Deal is a toast to the richness of Izzy's life as she learns to roll with the punches with grace and humor and embrace her new life as wife, instant mother, and Texan.

Synopsis:

Meet Izzy Rose-a hilarious and chic new stepmom trying to come to terms with the package deal. A single “middle-class socialite” living in San Francisco, Izzy loved her career as a successful, Emmy Award-winning TV producer and she was fine with the fact that she was unmarried and kid-less at thirty-five. But, then she fell in love with an irresistible Southern man named Hank and her Izzy-centric lifestyle turned upside down.

In short order, Izzy finds herself saying I DO to becoming a wife and “instant mom” to Hanks two sons and packing her bags for a new life in Austin, Texas. There, Izzy struggles to hold on to a bit of her professional identity while reinventing the stepmother role in her sassy, stylish, but also loving and vulnerable way. Honest and daring, The Package Deal is a toast to the richness of her new life and a tribute to any woman whose ever fallen in love and then asked, What exactly did I get myself into?
