Screen Play by Chris Coppernoll – Review

Screen Play: A Novel by Chris Coppernoll After struggling for years to make it as an actress, Harper finally gets her big break—but will she have to sacrifice the love of her life to take it?     At thirty, Harper fears her chances for a thriving acting career and finding true love are both fading fast. When she’s handed an unexpected role on Broadway—understudy to New York’s biggest diva––everything changes. She longs for love in the City, but when it doesn’t happen, she reluctantly signs up to an online matchmaking site. Frustration mounts when the only men Harper is interested in are on the West coast, thousands of miles away. Harper feels like an actress who doesn’t act, and a woman in love with someone she’s never met, but God’s about to change all that. My rating: 5 of 5 stars I have been meaning to read a book by Chris. . .
