    Hardy 2

    Mom put down her whisk and kissed dad. I looked away. "Happy birthday, Mixy!" He smiled, kissing my forehead. Something dropped onto my lap. It was a small package wrapped in blue and gold striped wrapping paper. "Thanks Dad!" I cried, grabbing and studying the present. It was not very big and was shaped like a square. "Go ahead, open it," urged mom from the kitchen, flipping the last batch of pancakes. I carefully tore off the paper. It was a silver box. I opened it. Two earrings shaped as figure eights were nestled in soft cotton. They were turquoise with silver hooks attatched to the back. "These are amazing!" I breathed. I made a mental note to wear these with my dress today. "I thought you would like them," dad smiled. "I found them in an Indian market." I hugged him. "Breakfast is ready," mom stated. Dad hung his black coat in the closet, took off his shoes, and sat at his seat at the head of the table. Mom came in and plopped the warm pancakes on the plate. I know it is a random time to say this, but we live in Australia. After a quick blessing, I grabbed a blueberry pancake off of the top of the pile with a serving fork. "How did it go in India?" Penny asked, grabbing a pancake of her own. "Well, it was difficult, but my client was proven innocent," he stated. "Yay!" Cried Penny, throwing her hands in the air. I spread butter on my pancake and then put an orange glob of peach jam on the top. "No elbows on the table, Penny," mom reminded her firmly. Penny swallowed guiltily. "Sorry," she murmured, putting her hands on her lap. "So, a little bird told me that someone was getting their savvy today," Dad began. I allowed myself to crack a smile. "I wonder what it will be!" Penny wondered. "Probably going to be something dumb," I sighed, taking a bite of fluffy pancake. "Hey, don't be like that," mom scolded. "Sorry," I shrugged. I finished my pancake and stood up. "I'm done," I called over my shoulder. Walking into the kitchen, I opened the dishwasher located under the real granite countertop. "Do your chores before you get ready!" Mom replied. I set my dishes into the dishwasher and closed it. I headed upstairs and entered the bathroom. The walls were a sandy tan color, and the counter was also granite. I grabbed my purple and white motorized tooth brush and put some Colgate spearmint flavored toothpaste onto it. My birthtime was actually at 8:08 p.m., I call it BOB. I brushed my teeth, scrubbed my face with a brown washcloth, and combed my hair with my favorite purple comb. I changed into a casual adidas t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans. Running down the stairs, I slipped on my black crocs. First I had to check on the chicken coop and clean it out. I walked outside and walked around the driveway. Our driveway curved in then circled around a tree and some white rose bushes. I headed for the backyard. We had our chicked coop on the side of the house. It was shaped like a triangular prism. Three caramel colored hens strutted around, clucking. Their names were Millie, Alice, and Velma. I leaned over to the front of the cage. The chickens clucked at me. Well, apparently I couldn't talk to animals. I scooped some food from a bucket nearby and put it in a nearby wooden trough. The hens all ran over, wings flapping wildly. As they pecked at the food, I cleared out the soiled hay and put fresh hay in. No eggs today. I shut the cage with a thwack. As weird as it may sound, my next chore was to clean out the damn.

    Sassy and Sexy

    I love the Marcelli family. This large,extended Italian/Irish family owns a world famous winery near Santa Barbara and there are four unmarried daughters; Katie, Francesca and Brenna (twins) and Mia. The Sassy One is Francesca's story. Married young and now a widow; she has decided to get her masters and while working on her thesis runs straight into the arms of Sam Reese the owner of a multi-million dollar security company. Sparks fly immediately and they decide to enter into a 'no-strings' relationship. Everything is great until Sam finds out he has a twelve year old daughter and Francesca turns up pregnant (even though the used protection). This is only my second Susan Mallery book -- the Sparkling One is Katies story and just as sexy as this one. The story is full of twists and turns and lots of hot sex! They girls are beauties and the men hot & hunky. I highly recommend any Susan Mallery books.

    Loved this Susan Mallery Series

    This one was enjoyable because Francesca was so quirky and Sam was so straight laced. The vast difference between the two had the sparks flying. The relationship between the large Marcelli family is heartwarming and fun.

    An enjoyable romance

    In Santa Barbara, research student widow Francesca Marcelli fakes being pregnant as part of an experiment to see if people would help her deliver packages. Males ignore her and females nod in empathy, but no one stops to assist her. When she reaches the empty offices of Malcolm and White Data Tech, she meets the CEO of Security International, Sam Reese. He takes her into his office, feeds her, and offers to hold the packages for now. She admits that she is a social psychology grad student wearing a fake device to emulate pregnancy.<P> Sam takes Francesca to dinner as they are attracted to one another. However, neither wants a long-term relationship though both their families encourage the widowed Francesca and the divorced Sam to marry. Even love may prove too weak to keep this couple together.<P> Though his ex returning seems only to raise unnecessary tension, fans will enjoy the second Marcelli sister tale. The story line is fun as the estrogen as in the first tale (see THE SPARKLING ONE) is at a fever pitch as it was with the first novel. The lead couple is a fine pair, who claims there not in love, but we, the families and Susan Mallory know better.<P> Harriet Klausner
