This debut novel was a funny and sometimes sad book. We meet Wanda Lane as she's testifying in court when she testifying in a court case about getting blown up because someone @ the gas company forgot to close the gas main and the building she was working in blew up. Wanda is funny, sarcastic and has somewhat of a potty mouth. The witness stand collapses on her and she ends up in the hospital. From there her life ravels even further. She loses her job. Her abusive ex-husband is on his way from Alaska threatening to kill her. Oh and she hears phantom music in her head that she can't identify. Her life seems to be a train wreck waiting to happen. Wanda slowly begins to put the pieces of her life back together with the help of a good friend and therapist, but will it be enough to win the man of her dreams?
