Personal chef Annabel Brightman knows what she wants in life: an empire in the food world. But her tunnel vision has left a trail of brokenhearted men behind her. Quinn Garrett, who stayed with her family as a high school exchange student, is now famous for revolutionizing the PC industry and is back in Milwaukee to open a plant. Annabel's interest quickly flares into attraction, but can she slow down enough to see what she has lost in her personal life? This heartwarming story shines with finely drawn characters that touch your heart. Quinn's playful, innovative approach to life allows Annabel to grow logically and passionately into the woman she wants to be. Before I Melt Away (4.5) by Isabel Sharpe is the perfect Christmas story.
