Description

When blonde, Rubenesque paralegal Jenny Taylor is coaxed by her boss Lissa to a dance sponsored by the Midwestern chapter of RADFAm, a national fat advocacy organization, this wild new romantic world throws her into a spin. For within the group's gang of full-figured friends and their admirers lies the tantalizing chance for love and betrayal, couplings and contretemps. The well-rounded cast of suds-worthy singles includes: Misty Shores, super-sized spiritual guide and entrepreneuse; Greg Dillman, Armani-armored chubby chaser on the prowl; Connie Donovan, a raven-tressed and roundly rumped fashion diva who mows a swath of spurned paramours; Paul Daily, a lanky teacher who learns more than he'd imagined about plump pretties; and Joseph Rivera, a hunky sous chef forever seeking a BBW who measures up to his ideal. It's robust, comic romance as Jenny and her friends flesh out the truth about soap opera: It's not just for the rich and slender. Taken from the online cyber-serial, Measure By Measure is a Tales of the City for the fat and fabulous!show more

Customer reviews

This complex and fast-moving romantic adventure is filled with engaging, deftly rendered characters, suspense, humor, intrigue and poignancy �¢?�¦ all the best a really good �¢??soap opera�¢?? has to offer. During my savoring of the saga I lost track of the number of times I read aloud to others one of its apt insights, delightful phrasings or evocative descriptions. You may recognize people you have known (and perhaps yourselves) among its �¢??cast.�¢?? I have a feeling we have not seen the last of these folks. I certainly hope not: I want to know what happens to them next! A sequel, please?show more
