Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

After the U.S. president-elect dies during sex with a hooker at the high-class residence where Emma Jamison is working as a butler, her world falls apart. Fleeing the premises in a state of undress, Emma gets tabbed by the media as the hooker involved, which she isn't, and is further victimized by a Secret Service coverup. Broke and disgraced, she takes a housekeeping job at her grandmother's retirement home in the small town of Chartreuse, La., where she's determined to lead an obscure and blameless life. But Emma hasn't counted on her outrageous grandmother's sexual shenanigans with a handsome Alzheimer's patient; on her own attraction to the man's grandson, local district attorney Max Duval; or on an ambitious young reporter dogging her trail. Despite the saucy premise, Wells's (The Babe Magnet) madcap and enjoyable romantic comedy is only mildly spicy. (Feb.)

By C. Dionne VINE VOICE on October 5, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Emma Jamison never set out to be famous. All she wanted was to maintain her own temporary-butler service and once she meets Mr. Right marry and have kids. That's not too much to ask, is it? Apparently it is, but her last job lands her as the face of the woman who's `services' caused the fatal heart-attack that ended the president-elect's life. Never mind that she never even met the man.

Emma was simply doing her job as a temporary butler when the president-elect along with his secret service staff arrived at the Mullendorf estate. She stayed cloistered in the kitchen rechecking the inventory while Ferguson and his call girl were hustled up the back stairway. She heard the banging from above stairs and thought that something was wrong with the water heater but with a secret service agent ensuring she stayed out of the way, she quickly realizes just what the squeaking means and is very uncomfortable with the situation because she knows Ferguson's wife is out of town.

As luck would have it one of the buttons pops off her dress just as she's preparing to leave and she tries to repair the damage with a safety pin. Seconds later there's apparently an emergency because she's practically ejected from the house, with her dress gaping open. The photographers waiting outside take pictures of her leaving and it isn't until later that evening that she learns what happened.

Nobody believes she's innocent - and she exhausts all her assets trying to prove that she wasn't the woman with Ferguson. Left with few options, Emma makes the move to Chartreuse, Louisiana while praying for a fresh start.

D.A. Max Duveal is running for a second term in office and scandal is something he definitely can't afford. That doesn't stop him from taking a shine to Emma.

I requested this book from the publisher on the Kindle months ago even though I had read it in paperback before I got my Kindle...it was that good. My hope was that the author would publish future books on here and I see she has. This was so laugh out loud funny that I had to post a review via my Kindle when I saw it was finally available. Good girl gets mistaken for a Monica Lewinski but worse. Highly highly recommend and at this price I plan to buy another copy rather than search for my old one. A keeper. And an author to watch if you like romantic comedy. Do yourself a favor and buy this book.

This book had great reviews and a great premise so I was hopeful. But I was disappointed. The idea that a relatively conservative woman would be mistaken for a call girl who had sex with the president is a very funny idea.

The heroine is chilly, uptight and doesn't have good sense. The author gave the h a dog and had her do nice things for residents of a nursing home trying to make her sympathetic. But I really couldn't like her---she was unbending and always halfway ready to go off on a rant or break into tears. She also did some really stupid things. Why did she never even try to change her appearance? If she was so upset about the ridicule, why did she not have enough sense to avoid situations which, if caught by the journalists following her, would be likely to bring her still more ridicule?

The hero is a cardboard character and I could make no sense of why he would be so drawn to this cold, uptight woman except for her big breasts which he lusts over.

I found the first few chapters to be rather funny but after that, the mistaken identity thing got tiresome. A romance between the protagonists' grandparents is thrown in to enliven the story but I didn't much enjoy this rather burlesque subplot. I'm not fond of slapstick, though, so if you are, you would probably like this subplot. At least the grandparents' romance is not as boring as the romance between the main characters. Most of the book alternates between the protagonists' yawn-worthy interactions (like painting the living room), and, "I can't believe it but clearly the author is going to have this really stupid thing happen next." I stopped reading the novel about half way through and forced myself to finish it a few days later although I just skimmed the rest.

chadenfreude. My favorite word. Oh, how I derive joy from the misery of others. And by 'misery,' I mean the "you brought this on yourself, you horny bastard" variety, not poverty or hunger.

So I looked forward to reading this book, because it offers an element of schadenfreude. Emma Jamison is a butler. She owns her own temporary butler business providing butler services to those who need it. Hired to work one weekend at a New Orleans mansion whose owners are out of town, she watches as the guest coming to visit is the President-elect. He does not come alone. With him is a lady-for-hire, whose services are provided with such gusto that the man is left dead. Literally.

Unfortunately for Emma, the press believes she is the woman providing the sexy times, and Emma's life is, effectively, ruined. Her reputation is down the toilet, she loses her business, and she loses considerable sums of money in an attempt to prove that another woman was present.

She winds up in a small Louisiana town, where she works as a housekeeping director at the "retirement home" where her grandmother lives. Grams meets Harold, a hot octogenarian with Alzheimer's, and the two strike up a (very ... wink wink) close friendship. Emma, meanwhile, meets Harold's grandson Max, who is running for District Attorney. The last thing Max needs during an election year is getting linked to Emma Jamison, the woman who supposedly killed a President.

Emma and Max like each other. A LOT. But she is leery of getting too close, mostly out of fear of ruining his reputation, and he is leery of not getting close enough. He wants to be with her, even if it means losing the election.
