Recently divorced, Bonny Bon-bon Van Hooten thinks love is for romantic fools. She knows all too well the sting of betrayal. Although her best friend seems happy enough, shes only a newlywed and Bon-bon is certain love is not for her.

Timothy Fairly has come full circle. Hes back in Pilchuck, Washington coming back to Bonny, if shell have him. Although he doesnt deserve a second chance, hes praying for a miracle.

When Bonnys twin nieces take matchmaking into their own hands things turn comical, and the Kitsch n Caboodle Cafi becomes the rendezvous spot, as Timothy fumbles in courting his ex-wife and Bonny navigates blind dates with would-be suitors. The question remains as to whether, in the end, when all the petals are plucked, he Loves Me, Loves Me Not. This romance is a charmer. (Mar., 256 pp., $9.95)
