Spotlight and Giveaway: Switch and Bait

We're excited to feature Switch and Bait by Ricki Schultz, which is publishing on June 12th. This is Ricki's sophomore novel and it sounds like a lot of fun! Thanks to Grand Central Publishing, we have TWO copies to give away!

Synopsis:
A charming, hilarious romantic comedy — a modern retelling of Cyrano featuring an online dating profile ghostwriter — told with sharp insight and sarcastic wit, for readers of Helen Fielding, Sophie Kinsella, or Jennifer Weiner.

We switch. I bait.
Let me help you snag a date.

All through college, Blanche Carter was known as the love doctor in her sorority. Now she's parlayed her talent into a unique consulting business: she runs the online dating profiles of Washington D.C.'s most eligible women.

Armed with a battalion of rules, Blanche expertly helps her clients optimize their profiles and ace that first date. But although she'll happily message handsome strangers (and fend off dick pics) for other ladies, Blanche's most important rule is the one she has for herself: no relationships. She's seen too much heartbreak to believe in real love anymore.

When a former fling pops up among the matches for one of her favorite clients, Blanche gamely messages him on her behalf. Blanche is definitely over him, and this is how she'll prove it. But if she doesn't watch out, Blanche might end up not only screwing over a client — and possibly tanking her entire business — but breaking her rule about love as well…

Ricki Schultz's trademark irreverent humor and wry insight into the absurdities of modern dating are both outrageously funny and genuinely moving in her unforgettable new novel.

Although she is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and has spent the most time there, Ricki Schultz has also lived in Georgia and Virginia. (She promises she's not a drifter, though.) In addition to writing, she has molded the minds of tweens & teens as a middle school and high school teacher in both the CLE and the ATL — and she also spent a year teaching writing and communications at the college level. She's back in Atlanta now, and she owns the cutest beagle ever (Molly).

I have never done any online dating and honestly don't ever think I would want to. I don't know a certain person I would like to switch places with, but it would be someone who doesn't have to cook or clean every day and I would love to find out what it would be like to either spend the day shopping or at a spa being pampered all day and not have to worry about how the bills would get paid. I guess this would be someone rich. LOL!

I would love to switch places with Oprah Winfrey & live in one of her houses by a beach & be able to go shopping & vacationing & not worry about paying for it.

I have never done online dating since this never existed when I was young and dated. Meeting was not as difficult nor as dangerous as it is now. Switching places with a historical individual from the 1940's would be interesting. Queen Elizabeth during the war and her war work.

RD said...

I had many of those awful online dating experiences!

Tracy said...

Gosh, I have no idea who I'd want to switch places with for a day! My dog-- seriously. What would that be like? I always wonder what she's thinking.

Linda Kish said...

I have never had any dealings with online dating.

Lesley McIntosh said...

I have never had anything to do with online dating, too old to bother now .
I would love to swap places with Dame Judy Dench for a day and star in some of her roles in films, she always looks to have so much fun !!

Mary Preston said...

I wouldn't want to switch with anyone. I have no doubt I'd just inherit their problems.

Dianne Casey said...

I don't have any experience with online dating, I don't have any idea who I would want to trade places with, I'm comfortable where I'm at.

Bethany Clark said...

I would LOVE to switch places with Reese Witherspoon! Such a fun life!

I would not trade places with anyone!!!

No online dating experience for me. I was happily married before that trend took off and I am so thankful for that! Blind dating was bad enough! Very much enjoying my simple married life and can't even imagine a life where internet dating was part of my day! If I could trade places with anyone for a day, I would have to choose Jane Goodall. Ever since I was a young girl, I have admired her spirit and bravery and I have always wondered what that kind of life would be like!
