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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I never expected a female butler, but Emma got a raw deal in the whole Ferguson death. Happy how both Max and Emma were able to clear their names!!Published on June 14, 2013 by Veronica Gallego
The characters are so well thought out that you can't help but love them. We can learn a lot from our elderly, just as Max and Emma have. I enjoyed the book.Published on April 12, 2013 by Kindle Customer
