"Daytime Drama," Sarahlyn Bruck's exciting new novel slated for a March 2 release, is a fun glimpse into the world of daytime soap operas, and a fascinating inside view of how Hollywood treats aging female stars.

PHILADELPHIA - s4story -- "Daytime Drama" is a compelling narrative focused on Callie Hart, a famous daytime soap star, as she navigates a potential career change, an interfering mother, and a stalled relationship. This journey of self-discovery will not only greatly appeal to female readers in general, but because it is a fun, fast-paced beach read, those who enjoy Hollywood stories, soap operas, and stories about families and relationships will eagerly fly through the novel's pages with hearty abandon. Maureen Joyce Connolly, author of "Little Lovely Things" explains, "With her sophomore novel, "Daytime Drama," Sarahlyn Bruck builds on her reputation as a master craftsman of relationships... Bruck's deft approach and keen eye for nuance is both clever and ultra-relatable, creating a story and characters that stay with the reader long after the book is done."
