Her last job ended badly so Jane Pearson, a book doctor, is determined to redeem her career by midwifing the memoir of a war correspondent’s time in Afghanistan. Griffin Lowell was so affected by what he saw that he has gone into seclusion in a beachside cottage, where Jane finds him drunk, partying, and not writing. Moving into the cottage next door, she plans to be a thorn in his side, but Griffin’s sister turns up with her four children in need of a place to stay. So Jane moves in with sexy Griffin. As they delve into the notebooks, photos, and drafts Griffin sent home before he left Afghanistan, Jane begins to perceive the depth of his pain, while he likens her to a sexy librarian. If only their crusty old neighbor, a WWII war correspondent who has known Griffin and his sister since they were children, would lighten up. Ridgway launches a new series with wonderfully compelling characters, from the flawed and conflicted protagonists down to bit players, in a great work of smart, escapist reading. --Diana Tixier Herald
