More About the Author

Hard to imagine a more glamorous life than being an accountant, isn't it? Still, I gave up the thrills of income tax forms and double entry book-keeping when I sold my first book in 1998. I've now written more than 40 (2 of which were nominated for RITAs by the Romance Writers of America).

When I'm not writing I love to be out hiking, cross-country skiing or biking. I'm not athletic--I just enjoy the outdoors, especially here in Calgary, where I live, and on Flathead Lake, Montana, where we have a cottage. My partner Mike and I share this in common. We also love to play cribbage and Scrabble. If a glass of wine is on the table, so much the better!

Rating: 4 Stars

Margo Evans owns a small bistro that's pretty popular, always selling out her pastries and home made soups. In the opening chapter, she notices (again) a particular gentleman that keeps coming back to her cafe and doing something that is forbidden in her bistro - no cell phones are allowed, and he is constantly using his blackberry to make phone calls. He is apparently ignoring the rule and it's getting on her nerves.

Robert Brookman is always busy with his blackberry. He is out of work for the first time in ages, having been laid off by Wells Fargo Bank. Living in San Francisco, however, means there's no shortage on career opportunities and Robert knows it'll only be a matter of time before he lands another job. Meanwhile, he spends his time in the bistro that he's grown to love, and he's also noticed the pretty owner.

Margo's problems with Robert and his blackberry are nothing compared to what she is going through now. She's just learned that her ex-husband, Tom, is about to get married again. Margo has yet to meet the intended bride. She's not sure how to break the news to their two children, fifth grader Ellie and younger brother Peter. She's also worried about her bistro. The bank is on her back because she's been having a hard time paying the bills, and is barely making ends meet. Margo used to be a successful family lawyer, but her heart wasn't in it anymore and felt the bistro was where she wanted to try making a go at it. Unfortunately, she was still operating in the red, and was afraid that soon her savings would run out.
