Publisher Comments:

Meet June Parker. She works for L.A. Rideshare, adores her rent-stabilized apartment in Santa Monica, and struggles with losing a few pesky pounds.

But June’s life is about to change.

After a dark turn of events involving Weight Watchers, a chili recipe, and a car accident in which her passenger, Marissa, dies, June finds herself in possession of a list Marissa has written, “20 Things to Do By My 25th Birthday.” Even though they barely knew eachother, June is compelled by both guilt and a desire to set things right and finish the list for Marissa.

The tasks before her range from inspiring (Run a 5K), to daring (Go braless), to near-impossible (Change someone’s life), and as June races to achieve each goal before the deadline, she learns more about her own life than she ever bargained for.

Funny, engaging, and heartwarming, The Next Thing on My List features a loveable, relatable heroine and a story with plenty of humor and heart.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

“Youll be hooked by this charming story. . . . Smolinski gives us a quick-witted heroine . . . with just the right amount of romance and a tad of suspense.”

—Richmond Times-Dispatch

What drew me to this story was the uniqueness of it. I'd never read anything quite like this before. There are moments that will make you laugh out loud and others that will move you to tears. The storyline falls a little flat toward the end and doesn't have the same "excitement" as it did at the beginning. However if you are in the mood for romance, friendship and just plain fun, don't miss this one!
