Fate reboots their old show and summons Staci, and Mike’s wife Celeste, to a fresh chance at entertaining modern families. After much discussion, they carefully accept. But when the show goes horribly awry, Staci, Celeste, and even Mike find themselves sorely tempted and even tricked into violating their most cherished ideals.
How will they find their way back, when all around them seems aimed towards darkness?

More from John
I wrote the book as a Christian response to a well-known actor starring in a popular television show reboot. I thought the topic would be an interesting fictional exploration what actors and fans should consider when a TV show seems to compromise an actor’s values.
I chose the Dallas metroplex as the main setting because I have visited the area several times. As a child in the early 1980s, I remember watching two Dallas TV stations on cable TV.

I found Bobby's Girls: A Novel by John R. Price to be a good read. It was interesting to see how the Whitaker siblings deal with their new lives and new opportunities. They have to be reminded what it right for them and how to stay away from temptations. I had to keep reading to see how Mike, Celeste and Staci were able to keep their faith and what choices they make. I liked it.
I am giving Bobby's Girls: A Novel four and a half stars. Readers who enjoy reading clean and inspiring fiction will want to pick this one up. I will be looking forward to more by John R. Price in the future to see where else his imagination will take his readers to next.
I received a digital copy of Bobby's Girls: A Novel from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
