“Stressed in Scottsdale?” Surely that’s an oxymoron. Scottsdale is a place where people come to vacation, and retire. However, by setting her novel in the sunny, chic and relaxing resort of Scottsdale, Arizona, award-winning author Marcia Fine meticulously sets up the tensions facing Jean--a middle-aged, over-committed writer who is pulled in too many directions by her semi-retired husband, her recently widowed mother, her daughter and grandchildren, as well as her bevy of best friends. Quite by accident, she finds herself entangled in the socio-political conflict between the Green Party’s candidate and a land developer, who has not only razed archaelogical sites for his proposed resort, but is married to Jean‘s arch-enemy. Listen to Marica's razor-sharp humor, as she discusses the inclusion of relevant themes to create this very enjoyable read.
