Book Description

FREE ROMANTIC COMEDY MYSTERY

DOESN'T EVERY WOMAN HAVE A SEXY ALTER EGO??

On the telephone, Maxine Bleckner, frazzled single mother, is India Mcbride, voluptuous sex goddess.

Left pregnant and penniless by a lying, conniving scoundrel, Maxine Bleckner has found an unorthodox way to support herself and baby Graham. Her alter-ego, India Mcbride, is excellent at phone sex. It pays the bills--at least until baby Graham begins to understand words.

Harry Watson is also a single, stay at home parent to his three year old daughter, Sophie. He's a free lance writer, and his latest assignment is to find out what telephone sex workers are really like.

But all his preconceived ideas are wrong, wrong, wrong. India Mcbide is nothing like he expected--but very much what he's dreamed of.

˃˃˃ What's India to do when a gentleman caller seems to want more than a sexy voice on the telephone?

Harry isn't like any customer she's encountered. He actually seems interested in her.

Is it possible to find the man of her dreams over the telephone?

3.0 out of 5 stars A whole lot of not much November 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think this book could be really entertaining, I just kept finding myself wishing the author had put a little more thought into what her characters were doing.

A phone sex operator with a baby? That's awesome, with lots of potential for hilarity (omg a call in the produce section?!)
A freelance reporter raising a toddler who gets hired for an exposé on phone sex operators?
Okay, who can tell me where this is going?

I wanted to be entertained by this book, but I wasn't. There were too many misunderstandings, too many lies, and quite frankly too much of an undertone of "let the men handle this, sweetie." It didn't come across overtly, but I never really got the impression that Maxine was so super capable. Without getting into too many spoilers, I think too many of the problems in the book got solved by men for the women, vs with them, or even by the women themselves.
Maybe it's because all of them are *described* as capable, but where we join the story their lives are starting to fall apart? I don't know. I just know I was irritated with them. A lot.

I can't even get into my thoughts on the "hero" because of all the spoilers it would involve.

Lies, betrayal, and forgiveness that comes way too easily. For all the talk about Maxine having a spine, I don't think she spoke her mind nearly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Story! September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love a book with a bit of spice that makes me chuckle. I have read so many of Bobby's books and loved almost all of them, but this one is near the top of the list.
Harry is a hunk...and just insecure enough to kick it up to adorable! Maxine cracks me up doing her everyday chores while having phone sex! Her mouthy friend Polly is a hoot.,
A sweet read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome story November 2, 2013
By Manda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have you ever wondered about those phone sex operators? I mean really do you think they are as hot as they sound or as sexually turned on as you are? Well this book will show you the life of 2 lady's who run a phone sex line from Maxine's house in the suburbs of Vancouver.

Maxine is a stay at home mom who when found out she was pregnant lost her job & the jerk boyfriend left her after taking her savings. So she took the only job that would allow her to work from home while taking care of her baby. So dressed in unattractive clothes & baby gunk she talks sex to guys who call.

Harry also a stay at home parent is a free lance writer who needs money so when a editor asks him to write an expose on phone sex operators he takes it. He happens to find Maxine's number in the yellow pages and starts talking to her about everything but sex. Both of course are using fake names & a few other lies to protect themselves. Part of the story is he has to meet her, so they meet in a restaurant and everything goes south in a hurry. After Maxine walks out thinking he can't handle her job and she thinks he is married.

By pure coincidence they meet at a daycare in their everyday clothes with their kids. There they start to see each other in a new light. So the question remains will the article that Harry is writing help or hurt his chances with Maxine?

I give this book a 4.5 stars. The story was great the supporting characters added a great deal to the story. I loved it

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding yourself and love February 21, 2015

Good read. Story leads were had the human characteristic of wanting to present the best image even if its "not quite them" and that was the hook on which the storyline hung. Great story development, predictable HEA end but how they got there and the self realisation that happens along the way make the book a worthwhile way to spend some hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it.. April 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this Book 5 stars because as a mother I could relate to the dilemmas of being a single mother and the wish of providing a father for my baby. Maxine is a successful working mother ( I know phone sex). With her son Graham she is making it until one day Harold Watson (a writer with an agenda and a sweet baby girl) places a call. What ensues is a romantic,entanglement with traces of deceit..both these two realize is they have fallen in love...two single people with children and one lie of omission. Can Maxine aka India forgive Harry. She has a ton of baggage but it's time do something other then phone sex! Bobby Hutchinson is a great writer, this book is well written and had my attention. If you love romantic comedy this book is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Please Keep Talking January 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Are You Lonesome Tonight? was a wonderful read that really surprised me.

Who would have thought that a phone sex operator with a baby and a free-lance writer who is a single dad would be entertaining to read about? Well that is exactly what made this story so great. Maxine allowed her alter ego India draw Harry in. When Harry calls into India to learn about her profession and her story, he introduces himself as Harold. It seems neither party feels they can be completely truthful on the phone. Sparks fly when India and Harold decide to meet.

Will they be honest with one another? Will they start a relationship or will Harry's story ruin their chances?

You need to read this story to see what happens between these characters. I really recommend this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! October 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw this book and thought it might be a little bizarre, but it sounded different so I gave it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book! All of the characters were developed well and by the end of the book, I felt like they could be friends of mine. There was some sadness in the book (the sadness that is merely a product of the lives that some of us are forced to live), but a lot of humor in the book and at some points I found myself chuckling out loud. I am really glad that I picked this book up and highly suggest it to anyone who is looking for a good relaxing read.

More About the Author

Bobby Hutchinson was born in a coal mining town in the Canadian Rockies, and she grew up reading and listening to her mom and dad tell outrageous stories. She wrote her first novel, Sheltering Bridges, at the age of 45, and it took her a year because she didn't know how to type, or how to write romance, either.

She learned, however, and that first book sold to Harlequin Superromance. Drunk with instant success, she immediately (well, over a period of many years) wrote and sold 50 more romances while marrying and divorcing several times.

Single now, she lives in her hometown of Sparwood, B.C. She's a foster-grandmother to two spoiled rabbits, and when she's not chasing them around the neighborhood, she writes and publishes romances, children's books and the odd (very odd) memoir.

HOW NOT TO RUN A B&B is the poignant and funny story of how she started her first B&B, with no experience whatsoever, hindered by a mass of complications in the form of eccentric neighbors, friends and guests. The book contains recipes that work, advice that is sometimes successful, and stories that weren't meant to be amusing, but seem to make readers laugh a lot.

Her latest romance is ISLAND SUNRISE, a romance set in Hawaii. The heroine, Charlie Cossini, is based on a fascinating carpenter Bobby knew in Vancouver--the first woman carpenter she'd ever met.

She's currently revising and uploading her romances to Amazon's Kindle. She has the rights back to 32, and she's writing more. (Hi, my name is Bobby, and I'm addicted to writing!) Watch for them on Kindles romance page.

Bobby loves to hear from readers, and can be found at http://www.bobbyhutchinson.com, or by email at bobbyhut@telus.net
