Blog Tour - Newbie



?Newbie by Jo Noelle The housing market is crashing, and Sophie’s life is crashing with it. At twenty-four, her successful real estate career evaporates. She’s broke, can’t find a job, or pay her bills, leaving Sophie wondering how her successful lifestyle became so fragile. At the urging of her roommate, Sophie accepts a job in her fallback career—teaching six-year-olds. She hopes it’s temporary. After all, how long can a tanking economy last anyway? The best part of the new job is Liam, another employee at Rio Grande Elementary. The worst part of the new job is, well, teaching. Sophie has a surprise real estate closing from a contract she wrote months ago, leading her to a niche in the real estate market and to a new partner, Kevin. Sophie must choose between Liam or Kevin and between a lucrative career or recess duty.




 


Praise for Newbie Loved this story. I thought it was crisp and funny. Sophie has a great character arch as she goes from the Real Estate world to a classroom of 1st graders. Love Liam. He is a nice breath of fresh air. He and Sophie's interactions kept me laughing and wanting more. I HIGHLY recommend this novel! ~ Author Sherry Gammon 

In recent years I've become addicted to Sophie Kinsella's books. This book reminded me of hers, only cleaner, which I appreciated! It was sweet and witty. Definitely had me laughing out loud. Loved the ending :) ~Goodreads Review 

I loved this book! I especially have a tender spot for books with children in them and this story about Sophie being "forced" to teach when the real estate market does so poorly captured my heart. The characters were warm and lovable, the story was fun and I enjoyed every minute of the book. ~Phyllis 

I loved NEWBIE. Sophie's inner thoughts are a delight. She just makes me smile. Her journey as a newbie teacher is real and touching. ~Donna Weaver

My review: I loved this book! I thought that Sophie was a really great written character, it almost seemed as though she was someone that I could know. She was in real estate, but things just weren't working anymore that way, so she fell back on what she had gone to school for, teaching. Even though being a teacher was almost forced on her and she wasn't sure that she would like it, she made the best of it - falling in love with her sweet first graders almost instantly. I love that Sophie seems to be down to earth, not really caring about all of the worldly things that she used to be able to afford as a real estate agent, but can't as a teacher. I really loved her love interest in this book too, Liam is down to earth and a bit mysterious, perfect for the bubbly Sophie. This book is a cute, clean, contemporary romance that you won't want to put down! I do have to ask though, what happened to Sophie and Liam????
