AFTER THE PARTY (4.5) by Jackie Braun: Ella Sanborn is nearly destitute when a psychic suggests that she try party planning as a new career. Ella’s first client is the eccentric uncle of toy company executive Chase Trumbull. Chase may come across as a tyrant at work, but Ella is quick to see through his facade to the caring man beneath. Chase is determined to protect his uncle from a credential-less Ella, but he quickly discovers that protecting his heart will be a much more difficult task. A quirky start quickly develops into a believable story filled with humor, a dash of corporate intrigue, well-drawn characters and a sweet romance.
