PARTY OF THREE
After rental property manager Ally Cummings comes home to find her fiance in bed with another woman, she throws him out and vows to start over. But when she's fired from her job, Ally isn't sure just how she'll do it. Help comes in the unlikely form of chef Ben Gillard, who rents rooms in her house for himself and his son and then persuades Ally to come work at the restaurant where he cooks. Party of Three (3) by Joan Kilby is a fun, mostly lighthearted read. Although somewhat predictable, a subplot in the form of a feud between Ally's parents makes the book more interesting.
