A Girl Like You (Berkley Trade Paperback Original; August 7, 2012; $15).

Local Florida writer Maria Geraci’s newest novel focuses on Emma Frazier, a smart, hardworking Florida journalist who thinks she might have a chance with her new handsome boss until she overhears a mutual acquaintance refer to her as the “ugly friend.” In an effort to reclaim her battered self-esteem, Emma decides to impress Ben at work by promising an exclusive interview with NASCAR legend Trip Monroe, an old high school classmate. But connecting with Trip turns out to be harder than Emma imagined. Her quest for the interview leads her back to her tiny hometown of Catfish Cove, where old secrets and a new romantic interest shake up Emma’s views on life and teach her that maybe the key to finding true love is as simple as accepting yourself for the person you were always meant to be.

Maria Geraci is the author of several previous novels celebrating women and friendship. She was born in Havana, Cuba and raised in Florida where she still resides.
