Then Deirdre's sometime-boyfriend informs her that he is marrying another woman, who just happens to be having the baby he told Deirdre he never wanted. While drowning her sorrows with Tag's vodka, Deirdre comes up with an idea. She'll use his massive online following to get herself voted on as a last-minute replacement on "Dancing with the Stars." It'll get her back in shape, mentally and physically. It might even get her a life of her own. Deirdre Griffin's fifteen minutes of fame has begun.
Irresistible, offbeat, yet with a thoroughly relatable and appealing heroine, this is an original and deeply satisfying story of one woman who's ready to take a leap into the spotlight, no matter where she lands.
