CEO Marcus Deveraux has everything: good looks, money, success and a large family. Yet something's still missing. Namely, love. And his soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend thinks she knows just the remedy: his best friend, Vera Clark Jackson.

After thinking long and hard about those pesky allegations that he's in love with the recently widowed Vera, Marcus soon realizes it's not so far from the truth. With checklist in hand, he sets out to prove— in the most wonderful and romantic of ways— why he should marry Vera and how he can make her happy.

LET IT BE ME is a tender, sensitive tale of an older woman who's complacent in life, and the younger man who reintroduces her to love and joy. Schuster delivers warm characters, realistic situations and a richly satisfying love story. (Mar., 280 pp., $5.99)
