Book Description

Twenty-eight, single, and struggling to keep her funky little shop of handicrafts afloat, Zoey Enright never thought she would become a celebrity like her mother, an internationally acclaimed mystery writer. But to her surprise, a knockout audition lands her a plum job as an on-air saleswoman for the Home MarketPlace home-shopping network. Unbeknownst to Zoey, the HMP's wily CEO, Delaney O'Connor, has set out to bring his only grandson, Ben Pierce -- the hero of Zoey's childhood -- home from Europe to run the network.
Ben's one true passion was grand prix racing -- until he laid eyes on Zoey again. But suddenly, a near-fatal accident brought his driving career to a screeching halt. Coming back to the States brings him face-to-face with not only an all-grown-up Zoey, but his own haunted past as well. Forced to confront painful emotions he crossed an ocean to forget, Ben finds that he must barter his old dreams for new ones if he and Zoey are to claim the wonderful future they were meant to share.

Amazon.com Review

Despite being bright, charming, artistic, and talented, Zoey Enright has struggled for years to find her niche in life. After several aborted attempts at a variety of careers, Zoey's flair for sales lands her a job as an on-air saleswoman for a home-shopping network. Zoey is thrilled to get the job and even more excited to learn that Ben Pierce, her childhood hero, is her new boss. Whisked off to Europe after the death of his mother, Ben Pierce hasn't seen Zoey since she was a girl. When she walks into his office and says hello, Ben realizes that the once precocious 11-year-old is now an exceptional 28-year-old woman, and his feelings for her are more than brotherly. Zoey, too, finds her feelings have deepened for Ben, but will the two let their clashing career plans stand in the way of their growing love? Find out in this touching tale that will leave readers sighing with regret when the last page is turned. --Lois Faye Dyer

Review

Mariah Stewart's Wonderful You should probably be renamed "Wonderful Everyone". Nearly every character she creates is truly wonderful! The entire cast of this book is delightful, perhaps because they received such a glorious start with Ms. Stewart's Devlin's Light. However, unlike some authors who don't tell you enough or tell you too much about their previous storylines, Mariah Stewart provides just the right blend. You may even be tempted to seek out some of her past works to see where these characters came from. Wonderful You breaks into your heart with a very down-to-earth and enchanting heroine - Zoey Enright. She is the quintessential modern woman. Zoey is smart, beautiful, but she just hasn't found her niche in the world yet. That is, until she finds herself on TV, working as a hostess for a new cable marketing channel. She sells to the camera and everyone loves her. It's as natural as anything she has ever done, but with one very pleasing twist - she's happy doing it. The only thing missing from Zoey's life is her old childhood hero, the boy who had left her mother's home when they were but children. Ben had gone to live with his grandfather when his mother had died, but that hadn't meant that Zoey would forget the boy who had been her brother's best friend. She had waited a long time for Ben and just couldn't bring herself to stop hoping that someday he would walk into her life again. Enter Ben Pierce - now running the very company Zoey works for. The Fates could not have been more kind! And it looks like Ben may be having second thoughts about this girl he remembered only as a boyhood friend, the lanky tomboy who followed him around. This woman who's eyes flashed like lightening...could she really be the same Zoey? And what about those long legs and lush curves? The world nearly stops turning for Zoey and Ben. When Zoey's family goes through some growth spurts, Ben is there to lend his support. When Ben's dream's begin to fade into the past, Zoey understands. Wonderful You shows how a beautiful love story can blend smoothly with elaborate drama and subtle mystery - a combination that cannot be beaten when in the hands of Mariah Stewart!Romance, both elegant and inviting! All the elements of a winner! Characters you know when the last page turns! They grow...they feel...they live. Mariah Stewart is a reward to the reader! Beautiful stories and beautiful people!

This book has romance, laughter, suspense (bit of surprise). Totally charming and enchanting. -- The Philadelphia Inquirer

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for Readers of Nora Roberts' Trilogies September 4, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rarely do I decide to review a group of books instead of just one. And, while I believe each one of these books can stand on its own, readers will be so enthralled with the Enright family, they will want to read them all. Much like the wonderful family series by Nora Roberts, these books are to be savored as some of the best relationship novels of the 1990s.
DEVLIN'S LIGHT set on Delaware Bay is the story of criminal prosecutor India Devlin and the first Enright sibling, marine biologist, Nick. And although there is more of a mystery in this story as India attempts to find out who killed her brother, it's the relationship with Nick that's at the forefront.
WONDERFUL YOU, set in Chester Co, PA is tells Zoey Enright's story as she falls in love with Ben Pierce, a childhood friend. There are some light moments in this story when Zoey, would rather eat take out than cook herself, is required to prepare a few dishes in order to help demonstrate cookware in her job on-the-air at a home shopping network.
In MOON DANCE, Stewart tells the story of the youngest Enright, ballerina Georgia. Set in the Maryland countryside, we find Georgia who wants one certain barn as a dance studio, while her nemesis, Matt, has planned to use it as a veterinary clinic.
The settings of these stories are all so vividly described, it's hard to imagine they're not real places. Readers will want to visit Devlin's Lighthouse, Zoey's Garden, The Bishop Inn, and the farm at Pumpkin Hill.
A common thread running through all three books is the matriarch of the family, Delia Enright, bestselling mystery novelist, who loves her children but does interfere perhaps a little too much, but always in a caring manner. Many readers will wish they had a mother like Delia!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Sweet January 27, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mariah Stewart, in her second book on the Enright family focuses on middle child Zoey, as she tries to figure out what to do with her life. Her business is failing but fortunately, her natural talent for talking won her a spot as the new host of a home shopping network show.

Ben Pierce is a race car driver with a bleak childhood whose highlight seemed to be the four years he and his mum stayed with the Enrights, where she worked as their housekeeper, before she died. He stayed with his grandfather after her death and deliberately refused to maintain any contact with any of the Enright siblings to protect himself from yearning for what he felt he cannot have.

Zoey and Ben met again through his grandfather's machinations and are immediately attracted to each other. Mariah Stewart writes beautifully the relationships between the protagonists in the story. I only recently began reading her older books and have to say that they are definitely more charming, unforgettable and worth keeping compared to her more recent efforts at romantic suspense (which are also very enjoyable, just less so than her previous works.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mariah Stewart Never Disappoints! November 24, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The second book of the Enright Trilogy is Wonderful. It is full of people you want to get to know, wonderful relationships and descriptions of the locales that bring them alive. You do not want the book to end and can not wait to read the next to see what is happening to another member of the family. There are so many facinating secondary characters and you wish there could be a book about each of them to tell their stories. I have read several other Mariah Stewart novels and have all the rest in my "to read" pile. When I want a great story that explores relationships, I know her books will not disappoint me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story December 12, 1998
By A Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mariah Stewart introduced the Enright family in DEVLIN'S LIGHT (Nick Enright's story). She follows it up with WONDERFUL YOU the story of Nick's sister Zoey. There are no villians in this book, just a bunch of people you'd like to know. Readers will love the story of Zoey and her childhood friend, Ben. There are some great scenes when Zoey, who works on-camera at a home shopping network, cooks for the audience. Zoey is no cook and makes no bones about it. There are great secondary characters, too. Stewart has another winner here. I can hardly wait for sister Georgia's story.

3.0 out of 5 stars More about the Enrights... February 9, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are reading Chesapeake Diaries, you will want to read this book and the other two about the early Enrights as well - Devlin's Light and Moon Dance. Hometown Girl: The Chesapeake Diaries is much richer for having read these 3.
This is a solid and well written romantic suspense with good secondary characters, continuity from book to book (although this would be fine as a standalone), and a landscape you feel you could just walk out into - all Mariah Stewart trademarks, amazing to find so complete in these early books.
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny yet poignant novel May 26, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Zoey Enright is the twenty-eight year old middle child of a successful family. Zoey hates being good at many things, but not great at any of them. Especially galling is the fact that her mother is a dedicated best selling author, her brother is a marine biologist, and her sister is a superb dancer. However, Zoey still tries and she successfully auditions and becomes a popular hostess on a home shopping network.
Another bonus to Zoey is the CEO's grandson, Bennett Pierce, who is helping his relative take control of the company. Bennett is unaware that Zoey, a haunting ghost from his past, is employed there. When the two meet, their childhood friendship blossoms into an adult love. However, their divergent professional plans make a long term relationship almost impossible to achieve unless a compromise is found.
WONDERFUL YOU is a multi-layered novel that will appeal to fans of romance, mainstream fiction, and family sagas. Mariah Stewart exceeds her own high standards of excellence with a work that compares favorably with the best of Barbara Delinsky and Belva Plain. The romance between the two protagonists feels genuine and touching, but the heart of the tale lies with the secondary characters who populate the sub-plots. Hopefully, some, if not all, of them will have their own stories told.
