Written with a deliciously sharp sense of humor and her usual superb sense of characterization, RITA Award-winning Greene's latest romance is a sweetly sexy, thoroughly satisfying, and simply sublime literary confection.�-�Booklist on Blame it on Chocolate
As the new guardian of a fatigue-clad, inwardly grieving 11-year-old girl, single and childless Merry Olson has her hands full: not only does Charlene, a.k.a. Charlie, seem not to like her, but inexperienced, na�ve Merry is clueless when it comes to being a mom. Her only hope seems to be her wary but sometimes sympathetic neighbor, military code expert and divorced dad Jack MacMillan. But Jack is determinedly single and isn't about to get involved—until an electric storm changes his plans. References to Cupid and Chaos add whimsical touches, while sharply drawn characters add depth to this well-written, emotionally rich story that explores some serious issues (e.g., grief, adoption) with humor and sensitivity and fairly simmers with sexual tension. Greene (Blame It on Chocolate) is a Rita Award winner. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted. All rights reserved.
