ABCFamily Show: Switched at Birth

This summer I took a chance by watching ABCFamily’s show Switched at Birth. As I have no prime time shows on Monday nights during the summer, I figured why not. The fact that it did wonderfully in the ratings for its first episode surprised me and I decided to continue to watch the program.

Death in Daytime Book

This is my quick review of Eileen Davidson’s book “Death in Daytime”, which was written in 2008. It is her first soap opera mystery novel, (two additional books came out in 2009 and 2010.) Ms. Davidson currently plays Ashley Abbott on the Young and the Restless, but she has also appeared in that role on The Bold and the Beautiful. She also appeared in roles on the soap operas Days of Our Lives (Kristen, Susan and more), and Santa Barbara (Kelly Capwell). My summary/review does spoil some information, but does not give away the killer.
