A little about Roseanne first:
Roseanne Beck is a lover of laughter. A writer of romance. And a conjurer of crazy characters. It is her greatest hope that the people in her head entertain you as much as they do her. She’s a physician who enjoys unleashing her creativity in her off-hours. She loves college basketball and hates Christian Laettner. She has way too many song lyrics rattling around in her brain. It’s a wonder there’s room for anything else. She would love to hear from you if you’ve enjoyed her stories.
Sherry Terry’s Review: 5-Stars
I loved Turn the Paige by Roseanne Beck. I think the cover is fun and campy and fits this contemporary romance story well. I was quickly drawn into the story with Roseanne’s clean writing. I like the voice of this story, and the main character being a doctor is right up my alley.
I was all prepared to find the story littered with medical inconsistencies and was pleasantly surprised with it was not. Working in the medical field myself for 18-years means finding a book with medical “correctness” in it is not as easy as it sounds. I think Roseanne did a great job with the main character, Paige. Then I read Roseanne’s bio and see she is a doctor. Kudos for having time to write!
All the characters in, Turn the Paige are well-done and feel like real people. Even the dead grandmother, Nana who makes appearances to guide Paige in learning how to sit still and find her center. When Paige goes home to take care of Nana’s last request, she discovers her grandmother has been busy including the town in her scheme to show Paige the one man for her lives right next door.
Nick is a good guy even though he tries to come off as a smart-ass. The two knew each other as children, and are thrown back together in a cute way when Nick breaks his arm. Roseanne sends them down the rabbit hole of love with great wit and humor.
This is a fun, light read with campy fun characters with flaws and real-life experiences. The romance is on the tame side and fits both the characters and the story. I enjoyed Turn the Paige very much.

Turn the Paige by Roseanne Beck
When Paige’s grandmother passes away she leaves Paige her house and a cryptic letter that forces her to question the life she has been living. As a doctor working two jobs it seems she doesn’t really have much of a life other than work.
When she arrives at her Nana’s house she finds more than she expected. A ghost is the least disturbing. The ‘boy next door’ has grown into a man who she doesn’t recognize as the boy who put gum in her hair when they were kids.
Nick’s friendship with Nana has kept him well informed of her worries over Paige’s happiness and well fed on her homemade cinnamon rolls.
Altogether a delightful book with lifelike characters and a good sense of humour, Paige’s struggles will keep you amused and delighted.
