Book Description

DATING CARY GRANT

A modern Manhattan fairy tale starring . . .

Tracy Connor, a New York City career woman who loves her job and classic movies.

Mike Connor, her estranged husband, a small-town Mayor who loves his wife but doesn’t seem to have enough time to see her.

The handsome stranger, Philip Adams, who lives downstairs from the small sublet Tracy has temporarily moved into. He’s charming, funny, and looks a lot like her very favorite screen icon, Cary Grant.

Dating Cary Grant is a romance all about New York city career woman Tracy Connor struggling with real issues with her real guy, her husband of six years, Mayor Mike Connor of Cukor, Connecticut. Tracy is a smart woman, but some of her problems with relationships are partially caused by her unrealistic expectations that real guys should—and can— behave like matinee idols. Mike’s problems are also caused by the fact that he’s such a great guy and overextends his heart, and his appointment calendar, to every constituent, friend, or stray animal who crosses his path.

Tracy is also being stressed by a TV reality show intent on showcasing Tracy and Mike’s personal life, as well as the imminent takeover of her employer, a small, private television station, by a billionaire with unlimited funds and no taste.
Dating Cary Grant considers just how selfless a man needs to be to meet his wife’s expectations, and just how honest a woman must be with herself about what she’s willing to give, and give-up. And Cary Grant is along to help prove that any woman’s search for ‘Mr. Perfect ‘ might take her to a surprising place to find him.

Review

Praise for Emelle Gamble

DATING CARY GRANT voted BOOK OF THE MONTH by Long and Short Review readers!!!

DATING CARY GRANT "...
the author went into the mind and lives of Tracy and Mike in such a way that you could really relate to both of them. I could really understand each of them and how they had gotten to this point in their marriage. It really is a love story, not just a break up story, and It was so well written and had unique plot, that I just couldn't put this book down until I had finished it. I loved it, and I loved the way it ended and for any of you who are looking for a fun, yet serious in a way, romance, this one is for you." Long and Short Reviews

DATING CARY GRANT"Fantasy and reality blend together in this mesmerizing tale from Emelle Gamble. I had a hard time putting it down, even as my eyes were getting dried out and closing from exhaustion...It's not your typical romance, making it a breath of fresh air in a market currently inundated with new adult contemporary romances (which I do love, but need a break once in a while!). I continue to be a fan of this author..." Andi's Book Reviews 

"I rarely gush over a book these days. I read at least one, sometimes two books a day and so I can be hard to move. But, this one really got to me... you do not want to miss... Molly Harper."  Clue Review

"Secret Sister is one of those books that leaves you re-thinking everything you once believed...Along with being a very unique and captivating plot...I cannot recommend Secret sister strong enough for those of you that enjoy a book that not only touches your heart but has you tingling in anticipation for whatever comes next." Fresh Fiction - Fresh Reviews

From the Author

  DATING CARY GRANT?
 
A Modern Manhattan fairy tale...
 
Now think. If you had a choice to spend your evenings the next few weeks with a charming, sexy movie star, or with your husband, whom would you choose?
 
Well, of course you'd choose your husband. He's your true love. The man you've promised yourself to, committed yourself to, till death do you part.  Right?
 
But, what if your husband is a workaholic and, despite the fact that his ambitions are to help people lead better lives, he pretty much ignores you most of the time. So what if you decided to move out on your own? Because you need a break from the discussions and disappointment and stuck in the mud, unable to move forward place you find yourselves in. Because you do, after all, want to find a permanent solution to your marital woes.
 
Would you like a little company? (Did I mention the sexy movie star?) Well, what if the movie star was  -- ta dah!!! --  Cary Grant!
 
Cary Grant???
 
Well, I don't mean the real Cary Grant, right? The star of Notorious, and Indiscreet, the hunk in It Takes a Thief and North by Northwest, to name a few of his seventy-two films? I can't mean Mr. uber-Handsome, Mr. Cleft in his chin, Mr. Very, very cool, classy movie star ICON, right? Because, you're certainly thinking, isn't Mr. Grant, well, dead?  
 
Yes, unfortunately he is.
 
But what if his totally perfect and sexy ghost was currently living in a high-end townhouse in New York City? And he's sweet and tan and mixes great martinis. He likes white dinner jackets and a heart-to-hearts  by the fire where he can lean close and whisper in your ear, "What else can I for you tonight?"
 
Yikes.
 
So, I ask again. If you had to pick between spending the next few weeks with the guy who might have been your biggest mistake in life, or a legend who listens when you talk, always understands what you mean (and looks like a Greek god would look if he was an Englishman), who would you choose?
 
Hubby? Or Cary?

3.0 out of 5 stars Cary Grant... sighhhhhhh... September 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If I'm ever haunted by a ghost I can only hope and pray that it would be Cary Grant!! One can dream right?? That is what intrigued me most about picking up this particular romance... I like to dive into something a little different every now and then.
Even though I love the idea of the story, I can't say that I particularly liked the leading lady or her husband Mike. These two and their self absorbed ways was a bit difficult or me to wrap my head around. Neither one of them wanting to give up their careers led to Tracy moving to New York to live in an old small apartment so she would no longer have to commute. An apartment that has no phone reception and no way to install a landline. But, it does have a handsome resident who goes by the name Phillip... (aka) our resident ghost! Tracy becomes somewhat infatuated with the handsome man who makes her feel like a desirable woman.
This is a romance that revolves heavily around the old movies from the past... it's not a steamy romance but instead plays on our ideas of the kind of man that would be our own... "Mr. Perfect". For Tracy that was Cary Grant...
This was a good solid read... not for all romance fans... but, might appeal mostly to those who spend a lot of time with their head into the old romance icons of the past. I liked it but I didn't love it... but, only because I was having trouble coping with our wishy washy heroine and husband and their constant inability to communicate with each other and make compromises. I was pleased with the ending BUT it was a frustrating journey! But, maybe that was the point.. :)

Dating Cary Grant by Emelle Gamble

Dating Cary Grant is a delightful tale mixing the mundane with the mysterious, the otherworldly with the ordinary. Tracy Connor has left her home in Connecticut for a walk up studio apartment in the Turtle Bay section of Manhattan, leaving her husband, Mike, behind in Cukor and to the demands of his office of mayor. Tracy is a producer for a small television station in NYC, works long hours, and absolutely loves the city. She is also a die-hard old movie buff and produces a show that reviews old movies. To her. Cary Grant was always "Mr. Perfect", something she does not see in her husband.

Mike, on the other hand, is a small town fellow who has given up his law position in New York to return to Cukor as the always available mayor. He is more of a Jimmy Stewart than a Cary Grant. The couple spent time with her home on weekends, then her commuting daily, but then, as he succumbed to the needs of the town, Tracy moved back to NYC, first to stay with her friend, Posey, then to seek her own little place.

The madcap encounters of the evening of apartment hunting, the misunderstandings that occur between Tracy and Mike, the undercurrent of a hostile takeover of the tv station, and a relentless reality crew dogging Tracy and Mike, make for a zany adventure complete with otherworldly visitations and the guidance of matinee idols.

I wholeheartedly recommend this entertaining tale!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd Date Cary Grant ! September 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having been a staunch movie fan since the age of nine, I absolutely loved this book! It was clever, but not convoluted. It was a fantasy come true for Tracy and for me. I highly recommend it! The best part about it was that she didn't "know"! Until nearly the very end....she didn't "know"! Know what, you ask? Read it find out! And a big thank you to Emelle Gamble from me.

Dating Cary Grant, Emelle Gamble
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I loved Emelle's Secret Sister, and was keen to read this book Once again she delivered more than just the simplistic novel the description suggests. You'd think this book was a simple, easy to read romantic comedy, and it is but its also much much more, making the reader think about what's truly important in a marriage and how best to achieve it.
I loved both Tracy and Mike, they're like many people, so in love and yet also devoted to their careers and jobs and in this case the two just won't merge. They married thinking time would sort it, Tracy tried commuting at weekends and that didn’t work, so she moved to living full time with Mike, and staying with friends etc when work commitments were too strong. That hasn't worked either, with her being overtired and still seeing little of Mike as he's been so tied up with Mayoral problems. Feeling she comes last in his priorities she signs a six month lease on a place in the city....hoping they can work things out. Mike isn't happy, he cant see why she can't live at home and commute, and maybe do less hours. He says he'll cut back too but she doesn't think he will follow through, she knows how he cant bear to leave a problem. She can't see why he lets everything, people, town problems, even stray animals, take priority over her, or even why they can't move to the city and he commute....I couldn't see how on earth they could solve this, and yet it was clear despite the weeks spent away from each other, the missed dates, the angry phone calls that they were deeply in love. As her mum says at one point – Mike is still the person she married. It was his selflessness, determination to do the best for people, lack of selfishness that drew her to him....

More About the Author

My books have one thing in common...ordinary women in extraordinary situations. They are all relationship stories about women and the men they love, and the friends they hold dearest. They also all have a touch of something else; a mystery here, a ghost there, an exciting or shocking turn of events. This gives the folks in my imagined world an interesting extra conflict to deal with, and my readers an extra issue to think about.

SECRET SISTER is a woman's fiction novel with a touch of paranormal that sets the plot in motion. It's hard to put down once you start.

DUETS, a prequel novella, and the novel MOLLY HARPER, set three years later, explore the multi-faceted impact family secrets have on the lives of three women and the people who love them. It's heartfelt.

DATING CARY GRANT is a modern Manhattan tale of a career woman, her estranged small town mayor hubby, and a certain drop-dead handsome neighbor who just might be the ghost of a certain screen icon. It's fun!

I hope you enjoy all these stories. Please come see me at www.EmelleGamble.com, follow me on Twitter @EmelleGamble or email me at emellegamble@aol.com any time.
