Animal Crackers

Liberty Heights Series, #1

Elle Druskin brings to life a New Jersey like you’ve never seen before with this feel-good story. Hayley Weaver is a very sympathetic character who is so enjoyable to watch stumble through all of her setbacks. I found myself cheering her on and hoping this would turn out just the way she needed them to. Jake Marx is a fabulous hero, the kind of man all little girls dream of marrying; a kind veterinarian with small town pride and morals. The fact that he is so laid back to her uptightness and that he can laugh about almost anything is just the healing balm she needs for her run of bad luck. I honestly found myself a little envious! I appreciated the nostalgia of this story and that it gave me a whole new view of New Jersey after being inundated with reality tv! I loved the location and I’m hoping to see some of the other residents get their own adventures.

Book Blurb for Animal Crackers

You’re fired. Manhattan workaholic Hayley Weaver is out of work, out of money and out of luck. Facing eviction, she grabs the first job offered, house-sitting movie star Paulette Stone’s New Jersey home. Hayley swore she’d never go back to Jersey but she’s hit rock bottom. The job sounds like a snap and the answer to her prayers. She should have known Jersey would throw a curve ball. Paulette neglected to mention her exotic menagerie and more critters than the Beverly Hillbillies in residence. Small town Jersey veterinarian Jake Marx is desperate to meet a woman he hasn’t known since kindergarten. Animal phobic Hayley has Jake on speed dial and the whole town is backing Hayley as their candidate to solve Jake’s love-starved life
