Overview
New Yorker Sadie Maddox is the toast of the classical-music world-and a
bit of a diva. But lately her CD sales are sagging, not to mention parts of
her anatomy. Maybe it's time for a change. So when her agent suggests a
professorship at a small liberal-arts college, Sadie decides to give it a go.
Besides, she needs the money.But the college is in rural Iowa. Sadie's colleagues are intimidated, her students aren't impressed, and she has to live far too close to farm animals.
When Sadie meets Mac, a veterinarian, she assumes they have nothing in
common-he is, after all, a country-music fan-and she's counting the days
until she moves back to New York. Yet, when Sadie is forced to spend time
with Mac, she likes him. Her students really need her. And this quiet midwest
community begins to grow on her. But when the semester ends, Sadie packs up and decamps for the city that never sleeps.and fi nds she can't either. Will she fi nd the courage and
grace she needs to embrace her Act Two?

Publishers Description

New Yorker Sadie Maddox is the toast of the classical-music world-and a bit of a diva. But lately her CD sales are sagging, not to mention parts of her anatomy. Maybe it's time for a change. So when her agent suggests a professorship at a small liberal-arts college, Sadie decides to give it a go. Besides, she needs the money.

But the college is in rural Iowa. Sadie's colleagues are intimidated, her students aren't impressed, and she has to live far too close to farm animals. When Sadie meets Mac, a veterinarian, she assumes they have nothing in common-he is, after all, a country-music fan-and she's counting the days until she moves back to New York. Yet, when Sadie is forced to spend time with Mac, she likes him. Her students really need her. And this quiet midwest community begins to grow on her.

But when the semester ends, Sadie packs up and decamps for the city that never sleeps and finds she can't either. Will she find the courage and grace she needs to embrace her "Act Two"?

Reviews - What do customers think about Act Two: A Novel in Perfect Pitch?

Hilariously funny and sweet  Jan 20, 2010
The wit in this book was fantastic. I was so sad to see it end. I enjoyed the charachters so much that after the 'End' -- I went on and finished the rest of the story in my own head.
I LOVED Sadie Maddox. I just laughed OUT LOUD so many times -- and it just pained me so much not to share it with someone, so I'd insist that my kids sit down and listen to excerpts of the book... (My children will probably tell you that this is an understatement).... :-)
 
Not your typical romance novel!!  Dec 16, 2009
Act Two is a humorous, romantic novel, that engages the reader, chapter to chapter, Kimberly Stewart keeps her writing fresh, humorous, but yet very real and true to life. I grew up on a pig farm in Iowa, so I really enjoyed the "city girls" take and the aroma and the simple life of rural Iowa. Kimberly delivers another delightfully entertaining novel that allows the reader to feel part of the story, not like an outsider looking in!! I highly recommend all of Kimberly Stewart's novels, they are fresh, funny and real to life!!
 
a new author to love  Oct 13, 2009
Glad I branched out and tried adding a new author to my Christian fiction library. Kimberly Stuart has a refreshing voice, great humor, and considerable character development skills. I especially liked that the saccharine factor was nearly nonexistent. Many in the genre write safe and "nice" dialogue for everyone, when in reality, a little admonition and correction/rebuke is necessary! You go, girl!
 
A pleasure to find,  Nov 20, 2008
This book was fun and entertaining. Being from Iowa, I related to the feelings and subtle references to the rural mid-west living. I got a few raised eyebrows while reading it on the plane because I laughed out loud several times, but you can't help it.
 
If you want to laugh..  Nov 17, 2008
try this one out. It's just a funny story about a lady you'll try hard not to like, in situations you can't help but chuckle at. Perfect escapism for serious time. There isn't page in the book that doesn't have sarcasm, wisecracking or outright hilarity.
