Regan Martin believes she has finally received the perfect job offer: She is hired as a marketer for a wine company. Regan made a horrible mistake six years ago by trusting a man who did not tell her he was married; she has been paying for it ever since.
Gabe DeLuca has placed a target on Regans back and has been hounding her ever since he walked in on a dinner date with her and his sisters cheating husband, Richard. Regan has told Gabe several times that she was sorry and did not realize that Richard was married. Gabes mission is to protect Abigail (his sister), and he is not interested in whose fault it was; he has just never wanted Regan and Abby to meet.
When both Regan and Gabe realize that she has been hired by his grandmother and sisters wine company (Ryo), she is fired, which devastates her until the most amazing things start to happen. Chaira (Chi Chi), Gabes grandmother, and her friends take a liking to Regan and make it their business to find her a new job and a place to live. And even though there are still several people who want her to leave town, those who rally around her make the others see her in a different way, which then makes Gabe see her differently.
My take: I really enjoyed this book; I laughed and cried as the author tugged at my heart. The characters are engaging, and I enjoyed their antics as we read about the Randolph rescue campaign, all three Mrs. Clauses trying to out-maneuver the PTA, and the naughty jar, which I believe Regan will be able to fund Hollys college fund with. I am looking forward to the next book as the brothers and sister were still not quite sure about Regan by the end of this one, so it will be interesting to see how things progress.
My rating: I loved it.
