SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Cassidy does it again with her second book set in Plum Orchard. There are many life lessons that the characters are forced to learn in this emotional story. For example, our meek heroine must learn to go after what she wants — not what she thinks she deserves. Throw in an absent mother, a huge family secret and hot encounters and this book is addicting. Even with all of the emotional situations, Cassidy adds her trademark humor to lighten the mood.
Emmeline Amos is used to fading into the background of Plum Orchard society. When her husband leaves her for another woman, who understands his need to dress in women’s clothing, Em and her two sons became the focus of the town gossipmongers. Then Em accepts the job of general manager at her best friend’s phone-sex company, making it even harder to keep a low profile. She ends up on the phone with a young girl who is calling the “girlfriend store” to find a date for her father. Jax Hawthorne is infuriated with the woman on the phone when he finds out that his daughter called a phone-sex line, but when he and Em meet in person, the chemistry is electric. Em feels the need to keep their relationship a secret, but the gossips catch wind of the affair and mouths begin to flap, thrusting Em back into the spotlight. Can Em get past her fear that she’s not woman enough for Jax? (MIRA, Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)
