Miss Behave: The Anderson Family Series, Book 1 is a contemporary humor novel written by Traci Highland. Piper Anderson still had dreams of being a renowned journalist following in the footsteps of her dad. For now, she would have to make do with the advice column the local paper, the Pendleton Falls Herald, had her cover, and the occasional news stories they would send her on. She had found a job listing for the Chicago Sentinel that had her dreaming of a real reporter’s job in a big city. It would be a change from her life near family and friends, but it seemed such a golden and glittering opportunity. Her mom and step-father, Ted, were supportive as always, and Gennifer, her roomie and co-worker, would miss her, but she couldn’t help feeling excited and hopeful about it. That job was on Piper’s mind as she walked along the paths near the Cape Cod place she and Gen shared. Stopping at Bee’s Pond, she decided to go in for a quick skinny dip, only to hear giggling as a group of kids ran away with her clothing. This situation definitely called for some quick thinking.

Any reservations I may have had about reading Miss Behave: The Anderson Family Series, Book 1, Traci Highland’s smart and funny contemporary new adult novel, vanished as I began reading the above referenced passage about a skinny dip turned sideways by circumstance. My reluctance had stemmed from the book’s classification as chick lit, but the sheer hilarity of this scene had me realizing that the genre listing wasn’t telling it all, not by a long shot. Highland’s story involves a reporter, so you know there are elements of mystery lurking, and finely honed characters, both good and bad, who are a pleasure in most instances to get to know. Reading this book is fun, and while I didn’t want to rush through this one, I couldn’t wait to start reading the next book in this outstanding and different family saga series. Miss Behave: The Anderson Family Series, Book 1 is most highly recommended.
