Kate Linden is a sous-chef in a hot Seattle restaurant. One night, as she soaks her tired feet, she gets a phone call from her ex--boyfriend announcing that he is getting married. Kate is flabbergasted. Gaston had asked her to marry him several times; each time she refused him. But now that he is getting married to someone he just met, Kate decides she wants him back. With the devious help of his mother, they plan to sabotage his relationship. In the meantime, Kate has a major blowout with her boss and quits, which means she can now devote more time to Gaston. Kate's artist mother has misgivings about Kate's abrupt lifestyle change and tries to push her new assistant, Sam, in her path. As Kate struggles to achieve what she thinks she wants, she learns that what she wants from life, and who she wants to share it with, is beyond anything she has imagined. Volland has crafted a comical, moving, and terrifically satisfying tale. Maria HattonCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
